Please use caution when opening links that are from an unknown new member, today I spotted a post, most likely from the russian maifa. It was wrirtten in russian, easily spotted, but the next attack may be more sophisticated. If you see something that looks like spam, or a cyber attack, or other strange things click the report box at the bottom of the post. This reduces the threat potential for everyone. They are looking to infiltrate anywhere there is information, money, credit card numbers, SS numbers. Protect yourself, protect you work computers, protect you home computers.

These people lack specific information that normal photographers have... camera models, lens models that match the camera that they own!

How do you tell if your camera is female? Should I put the lens cap on when I go into a public restroom with it?  :D

The links are ? Virus, spam or bots. This is not always the case, just happened 4 days in a row when I posted this. One post was clearly the Russian mafia. The links would infect your computer, worse your work computer, use caution, report suspicious looking posts. Clearly most scamers are not knowledgeable about photography. Please pay attention to the details they list camera types and models.

My posts lack specific information about settings and gear, but I think that's just because my brain likes to forget important things often. At least that's what I'm told at home..........

Paul,

On my Facebook feed, the second most recent post is from a guy named Ivo R Ivanov, claiming that someone has stolen and posted a pic he took of his daughter. He had 2 links attached to the post. Is this what your talking about?

If he's legit, my apologies Ivo. Otherwise, thank you Paul for the heads up.

It's a possibly, and I would not open either one of the links. They could contain viruses or mal ware. There is no way to know for sure until it's too late.

The threat is increasing from foreign criminals wanting to gain access to your information. DO NOT OPEN THESE POSTS! Send a report, and Bill removes the offender.

Just post "reported"

Thank Bill for all that you do for the SDP Community!
