Top Stocks ASX has had a Malware problem recently* , sending emails to clients etc.,. So this problem is never isolated to anyone site .

The nice thing is , they contacted members about this and advised we report activity to them for appropriate action . I recieved a such email and responded to TOP Stocks and they were on the job straight away within 2 hours ..... good for them !

Just posting here to say it happpens ..............

* last week early Jan 2013.

Let me see if I have this straight....

HC get pissy floats that no one else wants and some WA brokers (2 yrs ago and counting) were stupid enough to get anonymously quoted by a two years later we assume it is an attack on the site by those same brokers??

I call shenanigans by some cyber nerds.

i was starting to wonder if I had offended someone with connections to HC
instead it looks like HC has offended some brokers, cutting their lunch by agressive move into IPO market.
not suggesting brokers would want to protect a big income stream so much that they would stoop to malicious cyber attacks, but hey, what would i know?

just wondering if anyone else who might also log onto that other share forum (which shall remain unnamed but you can probably guess who) has experienced a malware attack via that website?

possibly expect a mass exodus from there to here if it is not only me. sorry in advance if that is the case.
