For the last few days my AIM has been crashing randomly throughout the day. A few minutes ago I received a random IM from a screen name I had never seen before. They said:
...you have three seconds to make a profile your profile is now a cube you have three seconds to move your cube you are being booted off the internet
And then Instant Messenger closed. I started it back up and a few minutes later got the same messages from the same screen name. I blocked said screen name. Problem solved, right? Wrong. A different, new, screen name IM'ed me with the same message. I had to set AIM to only allow IM's from my those in my buddy list while I set the program to send me an approval button before I receive any incoming chat windows from those not already on my buddy list. This has, so far, thwarted the strange IM crashes.
How in the world did they do this, I wonder. Can someone really come in and shut down the program? I guess they can seeing as how they did. Anyone have any ideas?
Update:This Hack's Sights Set on AIM...
I'm really not sure of the appeal of Mark Bakalor's site, because frankly I suspect there is none, but hell, I check it at least thrice daily, and you should too!
