    Alright so i just woke up and turned on the news like i do when i am first getting online.
    So apparently since Tuesday some one has sent out 400k messages to facebook members asking them to verfi there password and account name (phishing) And apparently there are a bunch of people out there who have been doing this.
    So not that i think anyone on here would be dumb enofe to enter that info. But just in case im giving a heads up. Also i would not buy any bulk aged accounts from any noobs cause you never know if they could be the one pulling the strings and you could have FB up your ass for aged accounts that are stolen.

    Not a problem. I don't think they are targeting black hatters but you never know who you are dealing with on a forum and at the rate people are signing up for accounts and then selling crap and scamming people darkaspitch is right be sure to ask questions before you buy.

    Actually i had received a emial few days ago to my email which i dont use with Facebook. The message said like thi" Due to security reasons your password at Facebook has been reset, to obtain a new password download the attached file and get a new password"Straight away i deleted the email

    I came to know today that its the work of hackers the file actually downloads several types of malicious software including a program that steals passwords.

    So be aware of such type of mails.

    Yeah they added that on the new just a min ago that they are also sending out e mails with attachments. Its probable a key logger . Thats how they are doing it, which also means if its a key logger that they will get all your passwords and users so be careful.

    I would imagine it's a lot more serious than a keylogger. I had one in one of my email account inboxes the other day but didn't have time and couldn't be bothered to analise it. What intreags me is how they're inboxing so well.
