PHISHING WARNING!
« on: November 09, 2014, 02:32:52 PM »

I've seen this twice in the last 30 minutes or so: after clicking on a thread the thread opens and the browser opens an authentication window telling me "To see this message, please confirm your identity".

So be careful everybody.

It happened to me here, for example: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=11056.0

Edit: according to the auth window the authentication request stems from http://0x5896d083 - how can I attach a screenshot to this message?

It seems to have already infected some members.

The culprit is a false image in people's signatures, directed to a PHP page:
[deleted by admin]

I'm guessing it's this new member 'wmap'. He has this image and only two posts.

This thread is also a repost of a blog post I read a few months ago.

I'm getting that on two different computers. I am not tech savvy enough to know what is causing it, but I am savvy enough to close it without inputting any information.

I've seen this too. I'm ignorant when it comes to tech. I closed the window using the red cross in the top right (also without inputting). Is there any risk when this is done?
Does anyone know?

You should be OK as long as you didn't enter any info.

I just sent a PM to tonyk and bitsapphire. I hope this is taken care of soon.

Akado, you are infected. Please change your password, and remove the image added to your signature!

If it is different than all your other passwords, you should be safe if you do these two things.

I've changed the password (although it's different from the rest), however, I don't see the image at the moment. Did admins remove it?

could we be at risk even if we haven't gave our info? Is like a virus loaded on memory or only phishing attempt?

It seems the mods must have taken care of your signature.

I believe it was only a phishing attempt. No virus, other than possibly adding a PHP image to your signature which would propagate itself.
