Hacking Attempts


Featured Posts

Started a new post because the other one appears to have strayed off topic.

Screenshot of email attached.

Is this genuinely from canalworld.net?

The 'To Me' email address is different to the one in my account settings.

Should I be worried?  Has canalworld been hacked?

Any comments from the Admins?

Regards

Have you checked the links behind the buttons to see where they are trying to send you...?  Don't click them though.

Good point, I had not but have now.  These are the links;

https://www.canalworld.net/forums/index.php?/settings/secure-account/

 

So it appears the email is from canalworld but does not explain the different email adrress issue.

Without following any of the email instructions, did you actually check to see if your canalworld account is locked?

 

Did you have to re-set your password to start this thread?

This is a genuine email. - I have created a support ticket on Canal World to check into this for you. You may view it by clicking "Support" from the menu at the top right.
