    Last night many of us got an email saying that we were awarded a lifetime VIP upgrade and all we had to do was go to this site, download the code and email it in - and there was also a bot that we could download. I knew something didn't smell right immediately - if they wanted to upgrade us for life, they didn't need us to get a code, they would just push a button... so I came here and soon afterwards saw it was worse...

    The email came to the email address associated with my BHW account - so I knew it wasn't simple phishing - someone had the database and it looked like it came from BHW servers. When I saw the 'DD' was posting that he sent them - I wanted to believe it, but even posted that his account could have been hacked as well and it may not have been him - and recommended caution to those that received it... and then the site went down. Whether the admins took it down or whether it was a DDOS, I don't know. I refreshed the page for quite awhile and then went to sleep.

    Very good to see it's back up and everything is good to go.

    Most of us (like myself) knew because pofecker and marusia kept us informed on facebook. pofecker worked hard all night on the issue and did a very good job of keeping us informed on the progress. About a week ago, pofecker made a thread with a link to his facebook. I recommend that if you have not already held him on that offer that you do so. Here is a link to his thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/459635-pofecker-join-me-facebook.html
