I got one, I think it's on PG'd accounts though because I looked at this guy's page and, his last flash submission was from 2003.

The guy that contacted me called me a frosty cunt.

Any meaning behind this?

The virus is spreading like wildfire and as it is, countless NG accounts are being hacked into, change your passwords, make them secure.

First of all, TWO BRIAN'S in one thread? Suspicious.

Next, the guy that sent me the EXACT SAME PM is named "Shogar" and he has some posts in 2004!

Some thing is going on here in newgrounds. I believe it will explode very soon.

The reason you're getting so many PM's is because all Newgrounds are stupid as fuck.

Don't visit that link or any other that people ask you to without caution and you should have nothing to worry about. Unless you're someone who blindly visits links, you should be fine.

Lol tom get's the PM and downloads it and his account get's hacked. Then the hackers change the website name to 5chan.com and start uploading porn and deleting all the flashes.

Just a scenario, not like I think that would be funny.

I always send them a message back, calling them dumb. I'm probably dumb for doing it.

Made a news post regarding the matter, not that it really matters anymore, because for the past 10 minutes or so, the messages have stopped so I think it's all under control. My little collection of these messages...

If you want an actual NewGrounds toolbar, this one is legit.

It's never updated though, so you have to have an old version of Firefox to use it. If you do, though, you can change the background/banner to old holiday ones. You can also easily make your own and change it yourself, if I remember correctly.

I think I have the explanation, the people who download the toolbar (Oh, those gullible people) get their accounts hacked into, and the phishers use their accounts to send more pms.


Everyone has a sig... Except me. :(
