Damn it, can you guess how I feel now? // Photo by Paigelynn
I’ve been getting a lot of instant messenging spam over ICQ for the past month, but couldn’t bear to close the account because I have too many important friends on the list. Just this morning, I got a horrible alert from my ICQ service stating that 80+ contacts of mine couldn’t be loaded because I’ve exceeded the limit on the number of contacts I could have. I didn’t think much about it since it was likely another spam trick… they’ve been adding themselves to my list without needing my authorization thanks to an ICQ web aware exploit tool. I only realized how bad it was when I found out that I couldn’t find anyone on my list anymore! Since ICQ and AIM are inter-related services…
…my entire AIM and ICQ contact list has been obliviated!
If you’ve spoken to me before, please let me know what your IM is by dropping me an instant message or email. I’m pissed! This sucks with a capital S!
