I recieved this mail tonight cant think how they got my home email address has anyone else had this ???????
An administrator of Digital Camera Magazine Community has sent the following email
to all users in the Everyone forum group.
Sent From: admin
Subject: Attention faggots
Your retarded administrators don't understand that repairing damage is meaningless unless you first fix the problem. This forum is now 4chan's bitch, and we shall do with it as we please. Since your administrators are completely incompetent we have decided to ban them, as well as change their passwords; we're sure you won't mind. We went easy on you this first time, prepare for the worst.

if the site has been hacked I give it a few days - a week possibly - before the retards are bored and move on.
Might be an idea to block that address though - before the images start arriving (again if the site is hacked and one you are a member of)
Are you a member of that site?
I've just had a look and it appears that their site was hacked which is where I presume they got your mail address from.
I was a member a long time ago and to be honest had forgotten about it i have just been on there site to see how to unsubscribe but cant see a link anyone know how I might do this ?
I have added the address to my blocked senders list is that enough ?
should be - if they are just going through the site they really won't care about your address. As for the site most forums don't have unsubscribe options as default (it breaks the forum threads if people just up and leave with everything) though one can ask in the forum for hte admin to remove them - best wait for the hackers to move on first though.
Block it and forget it, again.
Thanks I will do I just hate the thought of some brainless twit sending me something so rude !!!!!!!
Yup! I got it too...
Yup, me too. I just deleted it without reading and then attempted to access the DCM website...."currently undergoing maintenance"!
I had this to.
If you check the senders email, it seems like it is coming from a company with the web name futurenet.co.uk
What I have done is found the companies website & I have forwarded the email off to the the head people who run the company. You never know, it might be someone who works for them plus if it is, they might be able to trace it to the individual concerned. It's worth a go anyway.

Language check please Alex.
The site has most probably been hacked to harvest email addresses to sell on to spam companies
I got it too. They claim to be 4chan, who are the guys who soread that rick astley thing and also often hack websites and put up nonsense to scare monger. wiki them and it says what you need to know.
It probably isn't them though, seems too small fry a site for them. More likely copy cats.
I'm not happy with my info being on there, can't say I remember what I put in, but even my email address being there is frustrating me.
They'll repair the server in time. Just make sure you never open any attachments they send and keep you anti virus and firewalls up to date.
