    webcertificates.com/ecounts.com hacked?!

    Anyone know if webcertificates.com and ecounts.com have been hacked in the VERY recent past?

    I have a friend who uses these sites and received the following email:

    Just got this e-mail...the xxxxxxxx's were my actual information

    Dear, xxxxxxxxx

    Right now your account is under our full
    control. And we can use your money for our
    profit. Our advise to you - take all your
    money off this server.

    I hate to inform you that your account
    has been hacked on webcertificate.com and
    ecount.com. These sites have very weak
    security protection system and the database
    with credit cards and other personal information
    is not protected at all. Your personal details:

    xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxxxxxx


    Your credit card/account information:

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    expiration time: 5/31/04 11:59:59 PM

    We offered them our help many times. But top
    management of webcertificate.com and ecount.com
    don't care about their customers - you. They
    care only about their money.

    Fortunately for you it seems that White Hats have informed you of the breech in security, but nonetheless, I'd relocate your money and cancel those accounts hastily. You probably won't have a problem with it, they are probably just doing the right thing by informing you of it...but better safe than sorry.

    ok, it's NOT me... it really is a friend


    and I just found this article about the "hack". Looks more like blackmail to me, but then that is just my opinion.
