MR GREGORY ROBERT.
This was news I could not ignore because I really, really like Gmail. These hacks are ridiculous. I hope that google is getting a handle on this. It looks like the accounts are getting hacked with some sort of script that runs from a site or email while gmail is opened:
According to David Airey & gnucitizen.org:
The victim visits a page while being logged into GMail. Upon execution, the page performs a multipart/form-data POST to one of the GMail interfaces and injects a filter into the victim’s filter list. In the example above, the attacker writes a filter, which simply looks for emails with attachments and forward them to an email of their choice. This filter will automatically transfer all emails matching the rule. Keep in mind that future emails will be forwarded as well. The attack will remain present for as long as the victim has the filter within their filter list, even if the initial vulnerability, which was the cause of the injection, is fixed by Google.
As many of you already know on November 2nd, MakeUseOf.com’s domain was stolen from us. It took us about 36 hours to get the domain back. As we have pointed out earlier the hacker somehow managed to get access to my Gmail account and from there to our GoDaddy account, unlock the domain and move it to another registrar.
You can see the whole story on our temporary blog makeuseof-temporary.blogspot.com/
I wasn’t planning to publish anything about the incident or cracker (person who steals domains) and how he managed to pull it off unless I was completely sure about it myself. I had a good feeling it was a Gmail security flaw but wanted to confirm it before posting anything about it on MakeUseOf. We love Gmail and giving them bad publicity is not something we would ever want to do.
Now the thing is the domain name domainsgames.org is protected by Moniker and they hide all the contact info for it.

Dear Beloved Friend,
Greetings in the name of Lord JESUS CHRIST, I am former Alhaja Fatima Okeh,now Mrs. Felica Okeh a widow to late Alhaji Sheik Okeh, I am 51 years old and now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it s quite obvious that I may not live long according to my doctors, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.
My late husband late Alhaji Sheik Okeh, was killed during the USA raid against terrorism in Afghanistan. My late husband was very wealthy, who made his money from the Afghanistan’s Government, and hence I inherited all his business and wealth after his death because during the period of our marriage we couldn’t produce any child. And now the doctor has advised me that I may not live for more that six months, so I now decide to divide this wealth in order to contribute to the development of the churches in Africa, America, Asia and Europe and for humanity in general.
I selected you after visiting the website and I prayed over it, so I am willing to donate the sum of $10 million US Dollar to you on behalf of your organization to lend a hand in reaching out to the less privileged and the development of the gospel of our lord Jesus Christ, since I am very sick to handle this my dream on my own.
I want you to know that this fund is in presently in Security Company in Switzerland, where my late husband deposited it. So and upon your reply I will instruct my attorney Barrister Michael Gill Holonis, who presently is in West Africa distributing relief materials to victims of bomb blast in Sierra-Leone, to file in an application of Withdrawal of the consignment to your favor. Presently I am writing this letter from a Hospital in London where I have been taken my treatment, which is why I handed over every thing concerning this Donation to my Attorney, since he has been my family Lawyer for 18 years now. Meanwhile to process the documents that will be used to withdrawn this consignment from the Security Company I will need some vita information about you or on behalf of your organization, so that I will forward it to my Attorney immediately, so please confirm this items as below:
1,your full name
2,your mailing address
3,your telephone and fax numbers.
On receipt of this confirmed items I will forward it to my Attorney so that some necessary changes will be made on the documents to enable you have claim to the Consignment/Donation.
Lastly, I honestly pray that this Donation when transferred to you, will be used for the said purpose and properly too, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Christ is vanity. Please note that until this Donation is delivered to you, I will strongly insist that this transaction most be keep a top secret.
May the grace of our lord Jesus Christ, the love of GOD, and the fellowship of GOD be with you and your family as I wait your gentle and kind response to this mail.
Expecting to hear from you as soon as possible.
GOD blesses you and your family.
Mrs. Felica Okeh

A legitimate bank don’t typically use FREE email accounts. Also, they will not ask for sensitive information over unencrypted lines across the Internet. If YOUR bank does do this type of shit, get another bank FAST! Do NOT send your personal information to soliciting agency’s from a free personal account. Be suspicious of every one.
