Default Phising attempt - urgent

I have been alerted to a link that looks like:

http://www.computerforums.org/showthread.php?t=44729

When the user set that as a display name and masked the real address:



IF YOU LOOK IN THE DIRECTORY STRUCTURE THERE IS A TXT FILE THAT LOGGS USERNAMES AND PASSES



WHICH SHOWS:





CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE URL IS WWW.COMPUTERFORUMS.ORG BEFORE LOGGIN IN.

Yeah, I just noticed the announcement. Luckily, I don't think the logger has anyone's true passwords yet. I noticed people entered in stuff like I'm going to get you and stuff, lol.

David, you should report that to every place you can and get that place shut down. What if someone gets tricked and ends up having their passwords pubicly listed on that site?

Luckily I think we got the warning out before anyone got seriously caught

I wonder how long before who ever did it realizes we have post this and takes it down
