    Default Anybody else getting porn spam in their PM box?

    I have had two messages in the last few days in my pm box. How do they access this? Does it mean they are UU members? Never had anything like it before.
    Kind Regards

    Have you been googling for low G strings?

    Nope nothing like that in my inbox except ukulele porn. (Really nice photos of really nice ukuleles.)

    Kind of weird. I'd think PM isn't accessible, except by sending to the person's UU Private Mail using or clicking on the UU member's user name. But I'm not a techie nor a moderator. Alert and ask the moderator about it.

    Good luck!

    I kept getting warnings about this forum being spoofed over Thanksgiving. But I thought it was because the hotel I was staying at had unsecured wifi.

    I had privacy notices that the site might have been hacked before the holiday and was warned about entering the site. I notified UU on Instagram and it was corrected

    A few days ago when I went to my bookmark UU link, I got messages from Safari that the site does not have proper credentials and might be spoofed. I also got a couple of phishing emails that don't seem to be related, but came at the same time. A few hours later UU was available again. About the same time on the Talk Bass forum I frequent, there were constant spam posts in Chinese for about an hour until I reported it and the moderators locked them out. Guess Thanksgiving weekend is a draw for hackers and spammers.

    I got a txt msg that my Black Friday order was shipped. Just a personal name, no store name. Definitely not opening the link.

    I didn't open either of the two I got. Just thought that only members could PM people.
