  • NRR Myspace Hack

    Just a heads up and couldn't find an NRR section.

    Probably late to the game on this as I don't check out the hotmail account linked to my old myspace account I never use. I had an odd thing happen the other month where I got an email from amazon asking me to change my password as they had discovered it on 'a list' luckily I had no cards or anything linked to it at the time. It was a legit email from amazon but it left me a bit puzzled. Today I got an email asking me to change my hotmail email password as someone had attempted to log in which would make sense considering the following.

    Once I got into it I saw I had a mail from myspace dated from the 1st of June. Basically they had been hacked and anyone with an account with them pre 2013 well all that information is out there. So I would suggest if you have or have ever had one pre that date and that password matches anything important to change it.

    I just closed my account, its never used and seems pretty pointless these days.

    So the information they will have will be your email linked to the myspace account (if you start getting weird SPAM that will be why) and your myspace password. No apology in the email or anything. Luckily it was a poor password and I have more secure ones I use these days.

    The list will be huge can no doubt be read by anybody if they poke around and has probably been sold on to spam merchants to try and sell you dodgy meds and penis enlargement kits that don't exist.

    Hackers fighting the system eh, yep really taking down the man and big business nope just screwing over the poor. Maybe I should have put this as a pet peeve.

    Thanks for the heads up. Just deleted my account there. Nobody seems to use it now anyway. Besides, the layout is appalling - all pointless scrolling images and gimmickry - and all the posts and things I once made don't seem to be there any more. That security thing was the final straw!

      No Worries, yep I think I updated it about 3 years ago, couldn't get my head around all the ads and as you say 'gimmickry' and its just sat there. I've signed in from time to time in case anyone has sent a message but I'd have been lucky if someone had viewed the page once. I'm just glad it was linked to my spam email account that I use for signing up for general fluff so they cant get my main email from it but still, very annoyed when I read it and noticed I had a folder full of Spam I don't usually get.
