Hey guys, a heads up:

There are apparently a bunch of hackers going around hitting large communities. If you have large communities on your list, stay alert for:

  • posts which have comments turned off
  • posts which are worded cryptically and contain several links
  • anything else that looks suspicious

Don't click any links you don't recognise! They could be viruses.

More info here, with a screencap example of what these posts look like.

Be careful.

... I don't know, this post looks suspicious...

Incidentally, the post I found this on made a specific note that the link to the post with more info is "safe."

Presumably, if the post is an alert to members, the links are safe? Otherwise, that is one sophisticated hacker. But that would only work once.
