Bebop/Boopish posted this at Skinnalicious. I'm reposting it here because it concerns some WC members.

This weekend, my personal site had a rash of log in attempts from a blacklisted ip .  Nothing new there.
BUT it was trying using the following users:  madcat21, Tiggz, jjying, mikeb314, Pixstudio, Darnaez and Yangge and their corresponding passwords from somewhere.  Now, these well known skinners had never signed up at my personal site, so access was denied,  so I can only assume that  these user names  and passwords were snagged from some other site.  So, if you have contact with these skinners, please let them know that someone has their information.
Thanks.

And I got email from Barb, only, it wasn't from Barb. It gave a different email address.

 

I seem to remember alerting Jafo to a site that had a bunch of old login info for a bunch of customizers. Can't remember where I stumbled upon that.

I've been getting email from alot of my friends and relatives, but it is not really from them.  My email though is visible on DA and most sites.

Quoting teddybearcholla,

Yeah, it isn't from your email, but it says from Barbara Arneson then an emal addy in brackets.

I deleted it, I think. If it had been from you, I would have PMd you about it.

That may be precisely his point.
