    Just saw someone posting a fake message about Xrumer that the creator was caught and all licenses should be shut down.

    He posted that message in 2 sections.
    Luckily a mod was fast enough to remove the posts within a minute.

    Just to warn you guys, check the REAL link in the statusbar!!!

    As prove i have made a screenshot from it (no joke, it's a real one)

    Maybe to infect you with malware?

    As you see his account is from august 2009, he made 2 posts (the same posts in 2 different sections) today.
    Plus you see he has setup a fake site, probably even a copy of the real botmaster website.
    I have not checked it, as i saw imidiately that it was wrong.

    They probaby want to steal xrumer logins or install malware and viruses on your pc.

    I am glad the mods are fast and that there are more of them.

    The IP from this moron is ************* (UK) while the botmaster website has 95.169.190.220 (Russia)

    Check the real url again and you see /wp-content/ in the fake url (that's Wordpress)

    actually I think I was faced with a login screen when I got there. Didn't login, just looked for any news pertaining to the post.

    Sheesh...

    So it's a phishing trap....

    Don't forget it buddy, always check the real url in the statusbar!

    Check this http://www.google.com (mouse over the link and check your statusbar) ;)

    The ones that clicked that link better check their PC's...

    After I noticed this same post in Member Downloads (and deleted it)
    the same account posted an infected "Scrapebox" share 1 minute later.

    Only 20 seconds later the account was banned to prevent further damage.

    No, were a team. We all work together to guard the quality and the safety of this board.

    The Download Mods don't have ban power but as soon as we discover a threat (and eliminate it)
    and notify the mods/admins that have, immediate action is taken on their side.
