Thread: Rapidshare sucks

  1. #1
    Why did I trust in RapidShare...well, I no longer will. And who's to say any other centralized file sharing service won't go down the same path.

    Torrenting FTW!

    Ouch =/

    Question though, who the hell do they think will actually pay for their premium service if no warez/people who download warez are allowed on there?

    OH NO. Gulp. Has my account been hacked (phished)?

    http://www.topstori.com/solution-rap...ount-hacked/16

    I looked at the email header of this message, and it's from <mywallsc at khanika.ethii.com>.

    If I've been phished, how the heck could that have happened? I'm careful with my RS usage, am never fooled by phishing emails, and mainly upload to rs, not download, tbh. What occasion could have allowed for me to enter my details to a phishing domain? I ONLY ever log into my RS account by folowing my firefox bookmark :S. Does JDownloader steal account info? (the only other possible scenario I could think of).

    I have emailed RS to see if my account really has been terminated or not.

    I feel sorry for you. Rapidshare service doesn't make sense without right to upload/download illegal content.

    You've been phished. RS's whole service is based on warez, they aren't going to start terminating accounts for this.

    Ask RS to get your account back. And for now, only download links that are wrapped in [code][/code. That's why Warez-BB made it standard that you wrap your links in that code because you can easily see if it's a phish link or not.

    You've definitely been phished and i'd advise you to change passwords of other important sites like paypal or facebook and if you can,do it on your pda or something.
    Did you have the security lock on?

    Hey funkin.

    Yes I am certain I have been phished now. The fake email address confirms it. They recited back my account name and password fully correctly, they most definitely have access to my account until RS will give it back to me.

    But I am honestly tryi
    ng to work out WHAT phishing link I clicked on! I practically soley use warez-bb for the occasional software download, I've hardly used RS in the last month, and only mainly uploaded stuff.

    But the reality is, I just MUST have clicked on a bad link.

    This is fricken awful. I'm a massive RS uploader and now all my hundreds of GBs of files (unique music rips, not just mirrors of scene content) are wiped.

    Is my paypal account (what I use to pay for RS) in danger? I'm thinking not so, I'm assuming the control of the phisher only lies as far as the rs account.

    Found this article on what to do if your account gets stolen:
    http://www.stumblerz.com/how-to-get-...ck-if-scammed/

    Black hats can embed password stealers to videos these days.Google on something they call istealer if you still have doubts as to how much they could may have on you.It could be nothing but its good to take precaution.
    Try to google yourself a little too,emails,nicknames etcetc

    Security lock...dang....I never thought of doing that. I never quite knew about the phishing problem.

    In any case...I have the automatic download option ticked but I have firefox kill cookies and cache upon close, so sometimes I have to log in. THAT's what made it hard to differentiate it, I guess. But I hardly ever DL RS links from the site....

    I really think I have been unfortunate!

    Thanks for that link sez, that's extremely helpful <3
