One of the forums I'm on has just been hacked and has just sent me an e-mail from my own forum saying that the admin team (me) had suspended my account.

E-mail as below, delete as soon as you get anything similar




It read:

Dear Whiskyroom Member,

We have temporarily suspended your email account johnny@whiskyroom.co.uk.

This might be due to either of the following reasons:

1. A recent change in your personal information (i.e. change of address).
2. Submiting invalid information during the initial sign up process.
3. An innability to accurately verify your selected option of subscription due to an internal error within our processors.
See the details to reactivate your Whiskyroom account.

Sincerely,The Whiskyroom Support Team




As I am the whiskyroom administrator I know i didn't send the letter so it's part of the virus using the details of members to spread the virus. The other thing in the e-mail was a zip attachment, tell everyone on your site getting this letter like the one here except with your site details or there's on to delete immediately.

Just got another letter saying its from the admin team, I'll keep it for a couple of days if you want to contact me before i delete it, so you can see the threat.

Kind of strange. I suggest you change your passswords on your accounts to a new password to help protect them.
