    Help Find the Missing Forum Board has been hacked!

    If any of you who joined at any time to above Forum site, you may start receiving some pretty "rank" emails.................they ARE NOT FROM HFTM. The Forum has been closed and this message from Admin. has been posted.
    The board is closed for now while we find out what is going on.. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Just know that we here at HFTM are not the ones sending out the emails. Someone has hacked the board and they are the ones doing it.
    We hope to be back soon.

    Oh how awful...why would hackers even care about that board? I hope they are able to rememcy the situation and get things back up and running.

    I received the same emails but didn't open them. This is the second time fairly recently that this has occurred.

    I didn't open mine either, viewed the Reading Pane only, then traced the ISP

    Add me to the list of people who received those nasty emails. I opened one of them . I will never open an email from someone I don't know again. Can the hacker do anything now that I opened his/her scummy email? I blocked the sender and domain address. Is there anything I can do? I know little about tech in any way.

    LR,
    You should run a security check, spyware check, etc., ASAP!

    What a sad soul to do such a thing. I got lots of tumble weeds that need cleaning around my property if they are that board they could gather up.

    Any clue if the domain is coming from the UK?

    Thank you Tristen. I ran a full scan with Norton 360. I hope that ruled out that anything bad came in. It has virus protection, auto-protect, a firewall, spyware detection/removal, phishing and intrusion prevention.

    Please know that Harlett is doing all she can to remedy this.

    I got them also...didn't open any of them. I didn't like being told off by someone I never met either.

    If the server has been hacked the email address being used to send the emails to members may also have been compromised so the headers you're seeing in any of the emails in question may not help to lead back to the real identity of the original hacker.

    Yep, I got them to...........I just can't believe that anyone has nothing better to do with their time! I'm not real technical and don't fully understand these type things, maybe someone can explain the purpose of the emails and the bad language......I just don't understand, is it to hack into our personal computers for personal information or just someones sick idea of fun??????

    It sounds like an effort to discredit the forum.
