So...how did he get it to say it was from newgrounds.com?

Did he actually hack into your e-mail account? I didn't think that was even possible to access newgrounds.com e-mail as a user...

Srange, thanks for the warning Tom.

pages 1, 2 and 3 can answer that. people give the answer all the time, and it's quite sad that people just ask for the sake of a post.

There was a 46k file attached called "flash". It is most likely something malicious. Please note that I will NEVER send anyone random files such as this. If you receive an email from me with a file attachment, don't open it until you specifically know the context of our communication!

I've received one from Tom Fulp, and one from Randy Solem. I've also been told that someone sent one out with my email address. Those damn virus-kids are going to pay with their lives!


Rainbow Animations <-- for my website.

I've got problems with this kind too. But this wasn't related to NG though... I think...

Anyway, I saw your movie Jeremy and just wanted to say I liked it.

Have a nice day everyone and hope you'll get those arses!

Indeed... when they really don't know shit. I bet half of them pay for crappy software over the net instead of downloading torrents to get it for free. And all this talk about hackers and "script kiddies"? LMFAO!

Most of you idiots are pathetic... shit like that happens all the time . And you act like just because someone copied Tom's address that some major crime has occurred? ROFL! Sorry fuckos... you won't be scoring any points with flatulence today. Nice try acting like you know what you're talking about when it's clear to anyone with half a brain that you don't . =D

Definitely a hacker. And as for the fake ID, some hackers can do something called "IP Spoofing." Who knows...we might be stopping the next macro virus from spreading.

This is my first post because I've just gotten pretty fucking pissed off at the ignorance here.

Let me clear something things.

NO, we cant' be sure it's a "hacker". A hacker is a skilled individual, but ANYONE can spoof an e-mail address in 7 seconds and send somebody a malicious file.

And NO, Tom isn't going to try and find out who did it because again, ANYONE can do this. And even if it was possible for him to find out, there'd be no point because:

1. There's nothing he can do.
2. ANYONE can do it again anytime they'd like to.

Thank you very much, even though people are more than likely to just post stupid questions / remarks without reading the last freakin' page.
