Don't fall prey to Phishing attacks!

This came in the mail today.

admin@gmail.com? Looks suspicious... I clicked on "Show Original".


Notice the 2 boxes I highlighted. This mail actually came in from a maxonline user spoofing to be admin@gmail.com. And the link led to a trojan horse instead of the link that was displayed.

I guess there will still be online users who will fall prey to this type of emails so this is a reminder not to fall prey to such phishing techniques. To the hacker who tried to trick me, I don't know what you were thinking but your IP address is logged.

i think it backfires on her such that she's "smart" and went to rjc before so all her schoolmates are HELL smart and good at exposing her. look at fiona xie with her fake angmoh accent, boobs and fake nosebridge. have you seen her st hilda secondary schoolmates expose her yet?

I receive an average of four of these email messages a day. It's annoying. I don't see any signs of this abating at all.

In fact, I think I see an increase.

A suggestion: try installing Haloscan for the comment box. You can check the IPs. I thought that you should've known by attacking XX for all this while? =).

well, it's probably a lil late now, but it's best not to have your email address typed in text on any website... this is because spam bots use spiders to crawl the www to gather emails. one alternative is to spell out your email address with spacing, for example, xialanxue at gmail dot com. spiders read traditional email formats such as blahblah@blah.com. another way is to make a jpg of your email address and paste it on your website as a picture.

good luck.

damn..u missed out on kennysia yesterday dude.. =( he posted up a picture of himself screaming "ALLAH AKBAR" << supposedly Allahuakbar ( Allah yang maha besar ) dressed as a terrorist . Although, some kennysia fanatics said that he was merely immitating jemaah islamiyah...half of his comment box was bombarded with dissatisfaction.Some dont think its funny to be using gods name or a holly term (the term Allahuakbar is used in daily prayers and other religious event). His supporters tried to turn the table by reversing the situation. I should've save the picture...he quickly took it down and change the caption to "ARGGHHHH". His IQ level is undoubtedly similar to Xiaxue's. I see a resemblance.

I think KS is asking for trouble, especially since he lives in an Islamic state of sorts. MAJOR BAD IDEA.

haha, I got it before. deleted it straightaway. :)

Kenny is a numb nut. And that's me being kind. Is it any wonder why he keeps siding with XX? Immature little minds think alike.

Damn it if any of you got that offending pic - post it up! :)

Okay Guys, I have added a "For the Clueless Ones" section in my sidebar, maybe it will help to read that first.

Anyway I have got work to do right now. Thanks to those who understand.
