LL does not capitalize every word or misspell "maybe".

Also that number is not listed as a support number.

The mangled English in that message says "SPAM". The phone number does not belong to Linden Lab.

I don't think it was necessary to change your password, but there's no harm in doing so.

I like this part:

-You May Be Shared Your Passwords On Unsolicited Websites.

 

As as opposed to solicited websites.

I wonder how they do it.

A script can send IMs to any number of SL residents. It's easy to do. All you need is a list of SL usernames and those are available all over the place. The orange color may be the result of your viewer showing IMs sent by scripts in... orange.

Anything on the internet that supplies you with data from third parties can be an attack vector.

I keep my viewer locked down so it doesn't play music or video or show me web pages without my explicit say-so. All it needs is a one-pixel graphic from a server controlled by the scammer, and they have your IP address. They have to have that to send the graphic. And, as well as any other signals at the internet level, they have have a set of graphics files, each unique to a particular service.

I don't think Second Life would leak your account name, and not seeing that could be a give-away, but the same basic trick is also being used over advertising networks, and you IP address can be giving away the name of your ISP..

I am not sure how any of this media-on-a-prim stuff, or SLVoice, or streaming music, can be secure enough for a company that has to meet internet money-handling stndards to allow.
