I started to get WoW phishing mails last autumn, which I suspect was due to the forum being hacked.
Since I just started receiving them again after a break of some months and the site is getting DOS attacked around the same time, I am getting suspicious that we have been hacked again.
So has anyone else started to get WoW phishing mails in the last days?

Shouldn't be related to anything through us -- most of the mail traffic we had issues with earlier was from IP addy's in pakistan and the text was in Russian.

Mostly saying how IloveWob, AcidQueen and ErichR need Viagra... in Russian.

... and no, that's not a joke.
There are those who know how, those who understand why, and then there are the people making websites these days...

Pretty much, something about my account beings spspended because I was selling my WoW account.
Which is pretty damn funny considering I never -had- a WoW account.

I thought this was also to 'make Melissa Steiner squeal'.
COVID-19 infection rates will increase.  Peak infection for most western countries will be April-June.
Please prepare NOW, buy tins, powdered milk and dried stores as priority while risk of exposure is relatively low.  You do not want to have no choice but to expose yourself by shopping during peak virus.

Actually we did get those addressed to "Hanse Steiner, make Katherine..."

Again, NOT a joke...

I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.

Yeah, but then he'd have to ban himself, and I don't think we want that.
