New Phishes and I’m moving!

Aug 13 2010 Published by jayras under Posts

Well, looks like the level of Phish activity wasn’t as frantic as it was last week, but I still did get a fair number of Phishes.

Including 2 new phishes!!

Suspicious Activity is a lovely little Phish where they are saying your payment has been canceled due to suspicious activity and you have to login to verify…wait…locked…logged in…AAAAHH!!

Automatic Recovery a really neat Phish.  This one claims they have a new website for recovering hacked accounts, which requires you to visit a site and wait for 2 days while they investigate.  And then…and this is the best part…if you don’t hear from them in 2 days, do it all over again!

Here are the counts of last weeks activity:

5 Beta

1 Account Change Confusion

1 Controversial Account Transaction

3 Selling Account

3 Account Invasion

On another note:  I feel I’ve reached the limits of patience with trying to do a Phish Library in WordPress.  It’s a great blogging tool, and I’ll still use WordPress for my blog.  But trying to keep a library of pages just doesn’t fit in WordPress’ feature set.

So, it inspired me to get a real domain!!!

Yes, that’s right

I’ve got an official domain for this wonderful site now:

Welcome to!

The world of Phishes, all for you at a low LOW price of just $19.95

…ok, maybe not

But ya, is up (Although not a lot is there…just my fish tank.) and the blog should be up in short order over at:

So, get ready to update your bookmarks and when I get the blog running I’ll post a notice.

For now, everything will stay the way it is and all content will still be in WordPress until I get the library all up and running the way I like, it’ll just be all on

Security Update at Blizzard, and new Phishes…

Jul 29 2010 Published by jayras under Posts

Posting a day early, this is just a notice about a specific change Blizzard made last week (That I missed..sorry for not mentioning it sooner.)

I had the unfortunate pleasure of getting locked out of my account.  Luckily it wasn’t a case of getting Hacked.  No, it was more stupid than that.

I got a new iPhone!!

Of course, I didn’t prep my account and I did format and turn in my old iPhone so I no longer had access to it.

When I got home, I soon realized my mistake when I went to login to Warcraft and when I launched my Authenticator it was giving me steps to register my NEW authenticator (WHOOPS)

So, next morning, I use my new iPhone and a headset and sat on Hold for 37 minutes (Yes, I counted…)

They drilled me, asking me question after question, making me PROVE to them that I am who I say I am (Good for you Blizzard!!)

In the end they pulled my old authenticator off, and sent me on my way to put the new one on.

During the process I noticed they added a step.

No longer can you just simply drop in a Serial number and wam BAM you have an authenticator (Which, unfortunately, hackers did all the time.)

No, now you put in the serial number, and then they send you an e-mail!

And from that e-mail you must click the link!

This is perfect…it means any hacker would be notifying themselves to you when they attempt to steal your account, and you are smart enough to scream HEY!! I didn’t do that, and NOT click the link!!

Here’s the new process:

  • Log onto Account Management (
  • Click on Settings, then click Manage Security Options
  • Click on Add this authenticator
  • [new]—>Required confirmation link sent to your account email address
  • You log onto your email account itself, look for an email titled Account Authenticator Addition from with a link to loop back to Account Management. This contains a one-time use token.
  • Add a mobile or keychain authenticator
  • Now you have an authenticator

More information on the change can be found here:

Forum Post on the new change.

Now, for the bad news…

Blizzard broke one of their cardinal rules…the e-mail you get is not Personalized.

AND…I’ve already received a fishing attempt with this new e-mail (Its is a direct copy…with a new link….)

So, if you are adding an authenticator…make sure you are looking at a good e-mail and not a phish, scrutinize the header and make sure it isn’t from Hotmail, and it is from Blizzard.
