Those of you who play RuneScape or World of Warcraft are likely well acquainted with a popular phishing technique that made its rounds over the past few years, or at least you would be if you took a gander through your spam filter. The email warns players that they’ve been caught either botting or engaging in real money trading, and that further cheating will add them to a list of John Does in a pending lawsuit. While the email links to a fake login page designed to steal your account information, you might be surprised to know that the body of the email itself is indeed legitimate, or I should say was originally written by a legitimate source. Jagex once filed lawsuit against cheaters, and it didn’t end in their favor. No, seriously. I reported on this way back when it initially happened, getting confirmation from Jagex and from the central district court of California where the lawsuit was filed. The email cites both a valid case file and … [Read more...] about In Plain English: The Curious Case Of Jagex V John Doe

Are you on shared hosting & wondering does it affect SEO of your blog? Do you need a dedicated I.P. for your shared hosting account? Let’s find out the answer here. For the beginners, those who are not aware of Shared hosting, It’s a server where lots (10+ up to 200-300) sites are hosted on same server and thus sharing the same I.P.
