Hello there.

As you know, when you receive a PM in the forums, you normally receive an accompanying email that tells you that you've been PM'd unless you've turned it off. Today in my emails, I found what look to be phishing attempt on my RuneHQ forum account.

PLEASE DO NOT CLICK ON THE FOLLOWING LINKS.

From: "Invision Power Board"
Title: "FLOK has started a new message with you"

The_Eggman,

FLOK has sent you a new personal conversation entitled "Привет! думаешь побывать в Казани на Универсиаду?".

FLOK said:
=============================================================
Some random Russian Text here
=============================================================

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS EMAIL!
You can reply to this personal conversation by following the link below:


<removed link>


Ok, firstly it was in Russian, after translating it, it was some scam a about visiting a university there. Secondly, did anyone catch the phishing link at the bottom?

I think we need to remain even more vigilant as the hackers are targeting fansites now, especially if you're Fansite Staff.

Cheers,
James x

It seems they also used your RS name instead of your forum one. -1 point for hackers.

I'm going to fall for one of these eventually.. ><
Once we set through, we might not be able to come back. We may never see our parents again. There's no turning back. But this may be our only chance. We can't let fear stop us! I'm not afraid of the darkness! - Riku

Riku: What are you making me choose now?
DiZ: Will you take the road to light- or the road to darkness?
Riku: Neither. I'm taking the middle road.
DiZ: You mean the twilight road to nightfall?
Riku: No... The road to dawn.

If you do fall for one, and no one is perfect, just make sure you scan your computer directly afterwards and clear your cache. Its better not to fall for it, of course.

I'll keep an eye out too. Blood of hackers is nasty. :T Souls from them are nasty too.

If you look at the From section of the message, you can tell it's fake. The message identifies itself from Invision Power Board, which is the software we use, but it is not what a legitimate RuneHQ PM will contain in that section. It's a serious reminder that we're going to have to remain vigilant and proactive to protect ourselves from being phished.
