PHISHING from Sparty
PHISHING from Sparty
Seems to be some sparty trolling technique. Keep your wits about you, we're in hostile territory this week.
It looks as though you're not alone.
"Meta: Spartans Attempting to Cause Password Resets" hasn't even been pushed off the "New" tab of the MGoBoard sidebar yet (despite your best efforts), dude.
I read the main board, and then scrolled to the last post I read earlier in the day, but I didn't landscape in the App, so it just said "Meta: Spartans attempting to...". When I looked, it was obvious this was an unnecessary post.
Though there was no official response there. If it is Sparty, how'd they hack our email? That would be a concern.
All they do is copy-paste your handle then click "request new password." It's not an attempt to hack anything. It just sends spam emails to your account. Think nothing of it.
My God though...has a more pointless "gotcha" ever been come up with?
I just had my bank card replaced due to a bank system hack...so I always check, whether I'm that concerned or not.
Now it sounds like a badge of honor.
They just go here: http://mgoblog.com/user/password and bomb user names. They're not trying to lead us onto some fake phishing site, just flood our emails.
I assume the dummies think the board locks us out until we complete the reset or something. So some Spartan punch all our usernames in and is convinced he forced us all to do a reset to unlock our accounts. All I can say to him is "We're running low on toilet paper in the men's bathroom. Get your ass back to work."
Edit: FA Wins
Board posts don't show avatars or point totals? I didn't realize I was "dude"ing somebody who is on the board all the damn time.
Anyway, [if you're not logged in,] the "User Login" box has a "Request new password" link below the username and password fields - looks like you can request a new password by giving the ensuing form either your username or your email address, so Sparty must've seen a lot of your posts and figured you'd have enough points to start thredz n shit. I can't explain what the next step in the plan was, so I guess Sparty is an Underwear Gnome.
I did a "dude'able" thing. And it may or may not show you logged in on the App. I'm watching our Michigan QBs on tv, so I'm mobiling it.
I haven't and won't chance my password...I'm just curious how they got Brian's email bank. I'm not as secretive as some on here, so I don't really care...but as you say, the pointlessness of their master plan does intrigue me.
Read up to F_A's post. They're just feeding our usernames into Brian's reset program (you can input either a username or an email to trigger it). The reset program knows our emails and just sends them out with nary a thought. It's very Spartan like in that regard.
With Brian's Lebowski love?
Didn't think they were smart enough for that.
i got one too lol. and is there a limit to upvote/downvote people?
I didn't get one. I feel left out.
EDIT: I have gotten two so far since posting that! I have great joy knowing that with a simple click of button, I can thwart Sparty's dreams of infiltration.
Mine go a junk GMail account I never check. Maybe if Sparty tries real hard he can make a small dent in the massive amount of free space that account has.
Sparty, I'll fall for your trap of resetting my password -- please, do me, do me!
EDIT: Only one email in a half hour. Weak sauce.
I've got a really clever trick to catch at least a couple n00bs, but I'm not telling you damn Sparty trolls!!
BTW, has anyone noticed a conspicuous lack of Sparty trolls so far?
It's like that eerie silence before the storm. They must be planning something.......
100 point posting limits already taking action. Though it wouldn't stop trashing in threads. The week is young.
I would more so say a conspicuous display of mod prowess.
They'll be back. My guess would be some overnight attacks hoping that Geaux_Blue doesn't sleep. Little do they know that he has a law degree. Lawyers are slimy creatures of the night.
We know this, they know this and here's just another example of how obsessed State fans are with Michigan.
Go find something better to do little brother.
...I'm glad they care so much.
I'm surprised RCMB didn't find a way to put emoticons into the automated password reset emails.
