i was also thinking the same. I can't figure it out. Please someone tell more about it. How can some one gain access to personnal information through private messages?

The problem has been dealt with and the website link has been closed down. I don't know exactly what it showed but it was probably a webpage that looked like MyLot but wasn't and asked you to enter your username and password to log in again. The guy who set up the website (funny! They are mostly guys, aren't they?) would, of course, have it set up so that he collected the username and passwords of anyone trying to log in there.

What the alert means is that there was a hacker around here today, and there had been many discussions on it before MyLot stepped in. They put up the alert so every member would be warned about the hacker.
