Social Network Emails – Your account may have been compromised – What to do.

By | February 23rd, 2013|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , |

Users are still concerned after receiving emails saying that their accounts might have been compromised or the one entitled -  Important information regarding your security and privacy from social networking sites -  Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest. The problem arose when Zendesk  who store and organise emails for customer support and help desks for these social networks had their systems hacked. Zendesk believe that during the security breach personal information such as email addresses linked to these platforms may have been downloaded by the hacker. Quote from the zendesk blog  We believe that the hacker downloaded email addresses of users who contacted those three customers for support, as well as support email subject lines. We notified our affected customers immediately and are working with them to assist in their response. This will only affect you if you have emailed customer support at Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr - which most of us have at some point. I imagine if you have then that is why you have received an email warning you of the breach. - There is no indication that passwords have been stolen at all. So, I [...]

By | January 20th, 2013|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , |

Account Exceeded Limit A Yahoo email phishing scam is being sent to our in-boxes again.  The email looks like it comes from Yahoo admin and informs you that you need to upgrade your account as you have exceeded your limit of 30GB or you will not be able to send or receive email. This is a phishing scam.   What is a phishing email We have seen many of these on social networks lately - there have been phishing scams on Twitter, Hotmail, Facebook, and many more, and the object of the hackers game is to fool you into giving them your personal information, such as username, password and even worse credit card details. These scams don't always come via Email it can be on instant messages or private messages on various networks. Once you give this information, they have control over your account. How can we tell its an email scam As luck would have it - I knew instantly that this was fake basically because I rarely use this account and never save anything there, I've probably used 30kb not [...]

Blackberry services still down worldwide

By | October 10th, 2011|Categories: Mobile - Reviews and News|Tags: , , , , , , , |

  Blackberry smartphones in Europe, the Middle East and Africa - EMEA  cannot connect to the internet, send instant messages (BBM) and emails due to a server crash or (serious fault) at RIM who make the Blackberry. It was suggested this was worldwide earlier but now it seems to be just EMEA -  the first problems were reported at 11am today almost 6 hours ago now, and users on twitter are getting very frustrated. Four hours ago there was an announcement from T-Mobile on their website which states There is currently an issue with sending and receiving via the BlackBerry Messenger service as well as using BlackBerry internet services. We're investigating this with the maunufacturer RIM as a matter of priority and hope to resolve the issue soon. We'll keep you updated regarding the issue over the course of the day. All other major networks are reporting that RIM are still investigating and offer no time for a fix as yet. What the tweeters are saying..... Some are now reporting that they have internet but not all, so maybe it [...]

Clever Facebook 7th Birthday Scam

By | September 10th, 2011|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , , , , |

Facebook users are  being lead to believe that they can get a free pair of shoes as a special gift from Facebook as a birthday celebration. To redeem your gift all you have to do is verify your Facebook account by logging into Facebook mobile. There is even a video showing you how to do this to make it seem even more realistic and because it is quite tricky to find your facebook mobile email.  You then have to complete a survey (which is how they earn their money)  This should always be an alarm for users, surveys on Facebook are usually dodgy. Another alarm for us, is that you never get anything for free - free iPad click here, how often do you see that, do you click it? Free shoes? No pictures or sizing?  Apparently there is also one of these that has free T-shirts. If you do this you have allowed the scammer to use your Facebook account and post status updates or upload videos to your profile as they now have your facebookmobile email address, which is what this [...]

Malware Email spreading fast!

By | August 18th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |

Hitting with force in your inbox at the moment is an email regarding a speeding ticket - Traffic Ticket - that you haven't paid.   This email contains a Trojan horse, which is basically malware disguising itself as a safe program or application. A Trojan horse...  ...may allow a hacker remote access to a target computer system. Once a Trojan has been installed, the hacker may have access to the computer remotely and perform various operations, limited by user privileges on the target computer system and the design of the Trojan.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trojan_horse_(computing)Many people are reporting being caught by or receiving  this email - it is American so if you are not in America you should spot right away that something is not right but you still may be tempted to click!  Which is what they want - Trojans do not self-replicate like other viruses they are spread manually by you. Just don't open the attachment! The email appears to come from a reputable source @nyc.gov which of course is fake and is intended to frighten you into opening the attachment. Also another tell tale [...]

When is Facebook not Facebook – when its FaceBook

By | April 15th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

  Just when you thought it was safe to go back to reading my blog, there is another Facebook warning. Doing the rounds at the moment is an email that appears to come from Facebook that looks like this...   Dear user of FaceBook. Your password is not safe! To secure your account the password has been changed automatically. Attached document contains a new password to your account and detailed information about new security measures. Thank you for attention, Your Facebook If Facebook were to contact you they would use your user name, they would write their name correctly and they would not send you an attachment. More worrying however, is this one that I received today - it looks very real indeed.  Note the link at the top; lots of numbers, that looks fake - but all of the links look real. "Sorry that you've been having trouble logging into your Facebook account"  I wasn't have trouble logging in. So I just tried again via Facebook.com and it logged in right away, so you can safely assume that this is [...]

Facebook’s ‘new’ messaging system.

By | November 15th, 2010|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

What it means in brief. Seamless Integration.1. Seamless messaging  - integrated: Facebook chat, email, IM and SMS- "mix and match", just one click to decide how you will send or reply to any format of message. 2. Conversation history - Not entirely a new idea but again, integrated. Keeping all of your conversation streams together. 3. Social inbox  - containing 3 boxes Messages (from your important contacts)  Other (from not so important contacts)  and Spam - (Thats for spam)  you can decide who fits where and filter it as you  like. It's not email but it is email.  Says Mark Zuckerberg.The (not) email address will be @facebook.com This is starting today but ..... its invite only - (not again) and might take a few months to be open to all, yes, a few months! "The idea is people should share however they want to share".  Mark Zuckerberg.It seems that it is just how we'd started to use to use Google with Gmail, Gchat, Wave, and Buzz all connected but sadly Wave, waved goodbye, due to not much of a response.  More here.Somehow I think this will [...]
