As some of you might already have heard, LJ communities are under hacker attack again lately. These asshats hack the LJ account of a mod, delete the content of the comm and leave only one post open, in which they announce that the community sadly had to be closed, and hand out links.
The text of the entry would be something like this:
"My dear friends, I, as the maintainer of the community, have to inform you that, due to the recent legal/real life/health/whatever problems, I've decided to stop using LJ as a platform for my community. From now on, all related materials/my arts/stuff should be posted to the new community I've recently created, as for old ones, you will be able to find them there."
If you come across anything like that, DO NOT CLICK THE LINKS!! That will lead to infecting your computer with malware and/or viruses!
For more information about the problem and how to prevent it from happening to you/your communities, a little selection of usefull links (which I shamelessly, but with permission, snagged from hcxfairy @ fangirl_loves):
LJ user reporting what happend and giving advice:
- How not to become the next hacker victim by acari
- How to protect yourself from low tech fairly ingenious hackers by copperbadge
What to do if you see that a community was hacked:
- Again, do not, under any circumstances, click the links!
- Report the hacking to LJ.
- Contact the (remaining) mods of the community.
What you can do to protect your own account:
- Kick all inactive email adresses, via Email Management.
- Change the password for LJ (make it complicated and original, don't use your name or username or email addy or anything else that could easily be found out with a little research), via Change Password.
- Set up a Secret Question. Again, don't use anything that could be found out easily.
- Make sure you have programms running for protecting your computer against viruses and malware, and make scans for it regulary and often.
Mainly big communites (or rather their mods) are the target of these attacks, but well, better safe than sorry, ehh?
If you got a community yourself and wanna hand out a warning, I allow and even encourage you to "copy and paste" this entry at your comm.
It took me years to realize that the girl who played Sarah in the TV series "Absolutely Fabulous" was Naoko Mori! O_o Yeah I'm a bit slow. But I thought it would be nice to post pictures of Naoko from those years, especially since, I don't know about you but I MISS HER SO DAMN MUCH!
It's also funny to see that she was also playing a big nerd in this show! So to celebrate the awesomeness that was Sarah (and her glasses, and her clothes, and her hysteria, and her geekiness...), here's a picspam! I've got, at least, one screencap from each episode she was in.
(for those who don't know Ab Fab: her part was not really important and so sometimes it was a bit difficult to make some good screencaps of her. But she got some great scenes in the few last series)
Hi everyone! First post!
As you've probably seen,geckoholic has had to make a choice about this community: delete it or find another maintainer. As I'm a picspam addict and really don't want to see this community disappear, I decided to take over. I really hope this community become more active and as to get the stone rolling, here's a picspam I made. It is from the TV show "The Making of Me" with Joh Barrowman and it is not dial-up friendly AT ALL (obviously) ^^
Don't forget that you don't necessarily have to post picspams you've made yourself, you can also recommend other people's. And by the way, a rec post will be coming soon...
So now, enough rambling for a picspam comm, on to the pics! :)
Therefore, and because I don't want to have it linger around unused any longer, there are two options:
1. I simply delete it.
2. Someone takes it over.
I sincerely hope for option number 2 . . . If anyone want's to do so, please contact me! On demand, I'll be up for staying co-mod and helping with layout or generell community issues, so, don't be shy! :-)
CLOSED foui_the_brave will take over, after us maintaining the comm together for a while . . . Thank you so much for doing this, honey!! :-D
So, you've never seen Shark Attack 3, and you feel you're missing out on the thrills, excitement, and exquisitely crafted plot? But you don't actually want to watch the damn thing? Then look no further!
WARNING: This post contains sex, violence, nudity, drug use, bad words, and a quite ludicrous number of images.
Recap, Part Two.
Recap, Part Three.
Recap, Part Four.
Recap, Part Five.
And, for those of you who don't give a monkey's about all that shark-related stuff, here's a JB only picspam.
Different pics to the recap, and I'm afraid this one contains nothing untoward whatsoever, except for a few naughty words. However, there's still lots and lots of images.

Lets get things going around here! I just posted a picspam of the episode Something Borrowed. Starring the Torchwood Team, Brenda 'The Bitch' Williams, Mummy and Daddy Gwen, Banana Boat (♥) and scary monster Nostrovite (posing as the lady with the scary tan). There are 69 images, plus bonus Banana Boat. Warning for swearwords and general filth.
