Bogus Email Alert
First off, no such security breach has taken place here. The message is bogus. If you've received one yourself, DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY as the attachment is the real virus.
Secondly, if such an event had taken place, I would have posted something to warn you all about it from here. Sort of like I'm doing right now
Third, Sandbox doesn't even have mass user-email in the AdminCP, which the message was disguised as.
Carry on, and may the spammers develop ass rot in their mother's basements.

"Resistance is futile." -- The Borg
"Mother's coming for me in the dragon ships. I don't like these itchy clothes, but I have to wear them or it frightens the fish." -- Thurindil
Well. I guess that's that then.
I haven't received one of these emails for any of the three sites myself, btw.
Maybe that's a feature sandbox should have since it now has membership capabilities?
could be, though I suspect you've got more going than you realize sometimes too... for example, look at your projects tab at the top of this very page. Gammon's got his own reasons to be able to claim a significant count of google hits too.
In fact, as much as he worries about things like page rank, I'll be Zeno's prolly feeling like bot/spam central most of the time.
Total links: 344,169.
I had no idea
Btw, on a fairly unrelated note, it's nice to see QSFP's forums back up after being down the last three or four days.. what was wrong?
Ah well, I think the Google thing will be more stable in the long run than trying to deal with the burden locally. It's surprisingly easy to set up though.
I also don't see any controls to make the repository entirely private, so it would only be useful for something that's already intended to be public, like QSFP.
Ah, that wouldn't work so well for me then anyway. Oh well, it was a thought.
:snicker: As a total side-note, this happens to be my 1800th post here.
