Level 10 Troll

“Pain in the ASCII”

Yes, I seem to have walked into their trap and clicked on the Internet Camwhore Database link. Now I see that I’ve sent a tubmail to someone I’ve never heard of, subject line “warning,” content a hyperlink with the text “My account has been hacked by TSB. Click here to find out how to protect your privacy” (something like that); the link goes to the camwhore website.

Some questions:

1. Is this kind of hackery acceptable Forumwarz trolling behaviour?

2. HOLY ****! Has my RL personal info been hacked?

I apologize if this post is totally n00bish. Probably I should just chill. Please advise.

Welcome to the internet. You have learned an important lesson today. Check the link before clicking it.

As to if it’s allowed the answer is yes, But only if you are a TSB member.

@ Natalie

Thanks! If my RL personal info is secure (I am behind a firewall), I actually find the hack kind of amusing. Annoying and kinda scary, but amusing.

@ BigGuyInBlack

I’ve always been really careful about links in email (always copy and paste, check before clicking), but this happened from a link in Flamebate, and it appeared to be a plain ol’ ordinary link to the ICWDB. But you’re right… I have learned a valuable lesson. *hangs head*

I lol’d.

But let’s not forget that Myspace Tom got a one-day ban after using the same technique to become a moderator and dismantling several klans.

Which was really, really funny. I mean, I was honestly laughing my bum off. I ****ing love that guy sometimes.

The link just issued a command to the forumwarz server to send that tubmail. Unless there’s a similar command to send your personal information, and I don’t think there is, you’re safe. If there is, your [I]firewall[/am] won’t help. Firewalls only protect your computer from attacks made directly on it; anything that accesses this site or any other rather than your computer won’t be affected.

Edit: Although I must admit that Gigerth’s response was my first thought.

MST is a former TSB member who lived too large to be contained by any one klan. Plus they may have feared he would turn on them for the lulz some day.

No, I’m not. It was a momentary lapse of judgement.

Yeah, pretty much. Momentary lapses of judgment have their consequences.

If I’d been hacked like this in another context, you can bet I’d be deleting and changing personal info immediately. But given this particular context, I figured it probably wasn’t so serious… but then I was a little freaked out that it might be, you know?

You should be pretty safe, judging by what Tom’s done before. Um, maybe change your pbumword just in case so you feel better?

Just mark it as spam and wait until the torrent file with all the information gets uploaded, then.

I felt that way too at first, but gmail has unlimited storage, you know? So it’s cool.
