Hacking

I have received several emails from the MYOB Community Forum that appear to be selling crypto currency and other spam.  Has this community been hacked as it is sent to my private email which seems to suggest that someone has access to the community's email addresses.  Has anyone else received these?

Re: Unsolicited emails on Forum

Hi everyone,

It has come to our attention that recently some of you may have received an unwanted/spam private message through this Community Forum. We recommend that you do not click on any suspicious links. 

 

Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused by the spam. 

 

We banned the offending users fairly quickly but they did manage to send out a dozen or so similar private messages. We've had a couple of similar incidents in the past so don't want to restrict access to the Private Messenger for newcomers, however, this may be a channel that we do look to head down in the future.

 

Thank you to the many of you who have taken the time to report these using the 'Report' option.

Kind regards,
Steven
