As this is not new news for most out there about phishing and such, I figured I would put this here as a reminder about these things. Needless to say, this reminder came in the form of a lady with bad English and a Indian accent calling me claiming to be “Maintenance for your windows computer”. She would not name any company, and stated that she was not with a company, but was “Maintenance for windows computer”. After getting the lady flustered to the point of sputtering with my constant quest for the “company name” I stated to her that I felt she was trying to scam me. After this, i got a nice little click, and the call was ended.
As amusing as this all sounds, the bottom line is. Never give your personal information out over the phone or via email. Be sure to verify who you are dealing with. Worst case, ask for their phone number to call back then look up the number and make sure they are who they are and that their greeting system matches what they said.

Interestign article and a good reason to keep your anti-virus and anti-spyware/mailware up to date. Beware of phishing emails and fake sites.
A bit from thier blog:
We recently analyzed a new sample submitted to Symantec and came across a server hosting the credentials of 44 million stolen gaming accounts. What was interesting about this threat wasn’t just the sheer number of stolen accounts, but that the accounts were being validated by a Trojan distributed to compromised computers. Symantec detects this threat as Trojan.Loginck.
You can find the full story here:
Issue has been resolved. There may have been a conflict with a newer addon and the recent update that conflicted with the admin mod.
Still working on the nest update to address some of the more recent issues with how weapons are held and the gamemodes prop controle system.
Seems there is a issue with a recent update to hammer.
* Black/blank 2d views
* Entities either black or white in 3d
* Brush selection box has a black outline
On the bright side, it seems there is a way to downgrade the the SDK untill the fix.
Ok, build server still down, still working to resolve whatever problem there is.
Untill we get it back up I have changed the Dev server over to a temp build server.
