Blackmail?

Post by jkh on October 31st 2014, 11:04 pm

Hi

I received this message via the contact link on my forum and wonder if there is anything I can do about it? Is it just spam, or should I be worried about the security of my forum?

Message subject : [Contact] Bug Bounty

Message content :

Hello Sir How Are You I Hope You Are Alright Myself Nakul Mohan I Am

It seems like he is working on finding bugs for money,so...I m guesing you shouldnt be scared.
As far as I can see he worked with some big companies so why whould he bother with us on
free forums? Idk... maybe thats not even him,maybe someone using his name.
but point is, he is offering you to buy his skills in fiding bugs.

His FB profile
His Twit

If it was him, he would contact Forumotion, not an individual forum.
