You haven't been hacked.  She's posting all over CC.  Any member can send you a PM.  Until sh'es banned, she's a member here.

Ugh I just got an email notification :( and it was the same message but they were repiles to 2 threads that I was following. So they are not only sending pm but posting to threads

Just went to the threads and the post is not there but the email came from cakecentral, did they get hacked?

SystemMod1 Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 12:35am

Yes, as many of you know we were hacked yesterday by 2 different user names.  NEVER click on the hyperlinks of those emails or posts.  Cake Central Sends daily emails and you should all know what they look likek if you have been a member here for any period of time - if it doesn't look right, don't open the email, just delete it.  If you KNOW something looks off with the email you have been sent, report it as SPAM thru your email provider, system or host.  If you see a post on the forums that are spam, just flag them and we will remove them as fast as we can.  We had over 300 hits yesterday via posts and PMs that were sent so it took a little time- I hope we got it all.

 

I'd also like to take this moment to make sure you are ALL using the internet using updated browsers, operating systems and most importantly, VIRUS PROTECTION.

 

If you don't know if you are, don't know what those are, or don't know how to do it,  we can't stress enough to get some help from someone local that can look at your computer and make sure all these things are current.

 

I would also suggest you change your passwords to everything and have a different password for each account.

 

Hackers and spammers suck - but it's the way the internet is.  You have too do what you can to protect yourself.

 

Thank you and good luck.

SystemMod1 Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 12:40am

And apparently today by apparently the same "person".

 

This person is SMART and CLEARLY knows the Cake Central system.  Please make sure you DO NOT CLICK ON ANY HYPERLINKS in the email notifications or the love match PMs you are getting, especially the cakecentral.com hyperlink in the love PM that's being sent.  I don't know where that hyperlink will take you and I don't know what virus it WILL put on your computer but DO NOT click on ANY of the hyperlinks in those thread postings or PMs.

SystemMod1 Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 12:45am

Our system is overloaded so although we have already caught and deleted the spam post from the thread, the email notification system is bogged up and still sending out notifications to the thousands of members that have subscribed to the threads that were SPAMed and there is no way to stop it (or so I've been told).  Please just delete them.

Maybe it's Jason Kraft exacting his revenge because he has been banned.  :-D  Love ya Jason-Helen.

Danilou Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 2:11am

Why was Jason banned?

If it is Jason, as so many have been suspecting, this is showing his true colors because whoever is doing this is trying to give ALL of you viruses and ruin your computers.  I hope it isn't him - we didn't see eye to eye but I didn't think he was this vindictive and frankly THIS big of a jerk.

How many people have suspected this?  Because I certainly didn't.  Maybe you shouldn't accelerate the spread of rumors, unless you have actual proof that he is involved - otherwise it is slander on your part.

morganchampagne Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 2:37am

AWhat did Jason do to rub so many the wrong way?

Aw, come on the boards have been buzzing.  But you are right, I have no idea and I though my post was actually defending Jason in my way, I don't think he'd write such a weird post and punish ALL of Cake Centtral.  This has a certain African or Island country known for spam attacks written all over it.  So I'm not here to perpetuate any rumors, all I'm saying is my inbox has been BOMBED today and I'm as irritated as you all are and running every virus program I have!

Ridiculous.

 

While Jason is extremely computer savvy, he is not the vengeful type.  He is more likely to brood in a corner not understanding why anyone would ban him.

 

I, for one, have noticed a great deal of spamming/troll behavior far before Jason was banned.  And lets not forget that it wasn't too long ago that a different virus was unleashed.

I am kidding.  I do not think Jason would do such a thing.

Again, I am kidding.  I absolutely, positively do not think Jason would do this.   And I said "maybe it was Jason," not it was Jason.  That's not slander.

AivaCake Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 3:09am

AAnyone else want to be part of the cool club, too, and want to know who Jason is and what he did?? Haha

karennayak Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 3:09am

Accusing Jason of hacking the web-site ... RIDICULOUS!

FromScratchSF Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 3:09am

OK gals, he's banned so he can't defend himself, lets just drop it and move in to blaming who really is jacking up our day, which are the jerks that do this for a living in countries where this type of spamming is legal and profitable.

 

Look, I don't know much, but I know that it's humanly impossible to hit as many posts as what has happened today and yesterday, so lets be real here, this is a pro and it must have worked so well yesterday - meaning so many people clicked on their links - they did it again today.  I just delete delete delete because I spot this crap a mile away - but apparently it works otherwise they wouldn't do it.

brendajarmusz Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 3:09am

AWhy was Jason banned?? I thought he was a major person of interest here at cc.

Jason was always a tool but I seriously doubt he would hack the website.

 

I do think he might try to sue Cake Central for libel if posts like this suggesting he might be behind it aren't deleted. Doesn't that sound like something he would do? :D

costumeczar Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 3:14am

AThat many posts is some kind of a bot that's just programmed to respond to every post.

costumeczar Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 3:15am

AIt's not definitely a virus but it could contain one if it had links, which it doesn 't.

SystemMod1 Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 3:17am

You have lost the plot if you think Jason is responsible - and this thread is officially off the rails talking about "suing".  Get back on topic.

brendajarmusz Posted 27 Jan 2014 , 3:18am

AI dont ever see Jason doing anything at all to hurt or harm anyone. He's always been a friend to all and always willing to help everyone. This definitely sounds like a foreign issue.someone or several someones seem to have nothing else better to do that be corruptive and cause chaos in the lives of innocent people.
