please add will.barlow70 to the list. new one
Minor Update 24/03/2015:
We have recently seen users sending messages via Teamspeak with links to Steam Community profiles asking whether they know the profile. As far as we can tell, the links direct to genuine community profiles of genuine players, however we are not totally certain as to the purpose of these links, or what would happen with the conversation if it is continued.
As always, we recommend that you exercise caution at all times and ignore people you do not know who start sending you links. If you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to contact me or another member of staff.
It's just disappointing ):
Thats so sad... :c
Allright, good to know, thanks for the information!
i can't login why ?
Thanks for the information!
will.barlow42 please add this skype account list to the List
He added me month after the mod application was closed.
Poeple should be warned about fakers
PM Phishing Link reports to Sr. Mods please.
General Update 01/06/2015:
We are still seeing most forms of the phishing links we have reported on, via Skype messages, Teamspeak etc, including links to false Hive websites, false login pages for Steam, and fake facebook apps that harvest your info. We are not aware of spoofed Hive emails being sent currently, but they may still be used.
Please, as always, be wary. Whilst the number of phishing attempts appears to be getting smaller, people are still falling for this.
Do not accept links from people you do not trust.
Only ever visit a Hive website by typing the address yourself, or accessing it from a bookmark/favourite
There are no such things as "Free Optifine Cape Generator" or "Free Hive Premium Generator"
The Hive will never email you from [email protected], unless you have emailed us first.
Thanks for the update Ross.
I've noticed users doing something like this on the Teamspeak server. As always, I report them, and a moderator sorts it out really quickly. Just be aware guys that things like this are out there.
1 = Me
2 = Teamspeak Scammer
*2 starts new text conversation*
2: Hello, do you play on Steam?
1: Yes. My Steam is private though.
2. Oh. I think I saw you in a CS:GO game.
(They didn't, because my Steam name is far away from my Minecraft name, and any other name I user online.)
2. Is this your profile? *Insert scamming link. Hidden for obvious reasons*
*I get a moderator, and then say after I reported them:*
1. First of all, I'm not that stupid. It's not a HTTPS:// link nor a SteamPowered link. And all the other buttons apart from 'Login' don't work.
*2 gets banned from the server.*
This was not meant to be funny, this is meant to give you a idea of what they're doing now.
ALWAYS REMEMBER: Check for HTTPS:// links, sites such as your Email, YouTube, Steam, Skype and even the Hive has these. Check for buttons, like on our website, you can click the little 'HiveMC' logo in the top left which takes you to https://hivemc.com . (Same with Steam, not sure about Email though, because you might use a different Email service than me!)
Firefox has a little pad lock if it's safe, chrome has a GREEN padlock, also high-lighting HTTPS://.
Just look for Https:// , NOT HTTP://.
I'm looking very hard!!!!11
+ Pishers on the forums can disguise a link by using this text-to-link feature (forgot the name)
They can on teamspeak as well. Just be careful when clicking links on teamspeak and if you're unsure ask a staff member
Yes but there is no text-to-link feature on Teamspeak
people can make a link look like it's to a safe website, but then it leads to another.
