"Important message" PMs

Post by Skyler » Sat Jan 30, 2010 8:30 pm

Hey guys,

If you get a PM with the title "Important message from the forum administration!", be warned--it's a fake. The link probably directs you to malware, though I didn't try it (for obvious reasons).

Yeah, I got it too. I don't think it's malware though, just a crappy antivirus site. They probably can't get business any other way. :p
