Subject:SHOWMASTERS VIRUS - BEWARE!!
Time:09:06 pm
Current Mood:tiredtired
I've received the following two emails from Showmasters - of particular relevance to anyone going to London Film & ComiCon:-

We are currently expriencing a big problem with someone hacking our site and using our forum to pass on a virus. If you receive an e-mail from us with a clickable link DO NOT CLICK IT. It is actually a virus. Please delete the other e-mail asap.

We have already contacted invision and our server people who are working on the problem, and hopefully it will be back to normal soon.


Further to our last e-mail, we are afraid that the problem is worse than we originally thought. As well as the virus' being e-mailed they are also being downloaded when you log onto the forum. The problem only seems to affect PCs and those using Explorer, but as a precautionary measure I have taken the forum offline. For the moment I would advise that you DO NOT LOG ON TO THE FORUM or try to open a topic or page related to the forum.

We will be e-mailing you further updates when we have this problem fixed, and to let you know when it is safe to log back onto the forum.

Thanks very much for this. I've passed the info on to some friends here in the US who are planning to go.

What a shame that someone did this to their site. I wonder if it was kids.

I'm glad they warned me - I had actually been thinking about going into that site again to see if there were any updates about Lij's appearance. Hope they manage to sort it out soon:)

Yes - and I'd just been wondering when they were going to let us know which day(s) he's coming and if he's doing a q&a - could easily have clicked!!

A narrow escape! :/ Guess we'll find out later about a q&a... hope he is doing one! Love the new pics of him with the hair just beginning to re-grow and the full facial hair... ROWR!!!
