New Kol version? Virus threat?
« on: September 26, 2011, 04:07:51 AM »
Hey everyone, just received an email from a certain "accountinfo@kingdomofloathing.com", advertising a new "kol version"

It links you to an executable file at http://www.kingdomsofloathing.com

I'm pretty certain it's just a virus, but I wanted to check with you people.

Also, Jick might want to know about that...

Yeah, it's a phishing email of some sorts.

If you have received the email DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK!

(also, this is what it takes to lure out the old gang out of the woodwork?)

It is indeed a phishing scam Like Pac said do not click on the link.
The is an game announcement and I also put up a clan announcement so hopefully between the three places no one in 7L will get nailed by it.

So the Admins of Loathing read the email I sent! I feel so proud of myself. ^_^

Okay, someone else may have warned them before I did, but...ah, just shut up already!

Bonus points for making Jick spam all of you. >_>
