Hi everyone. I have a question about an incident that happened to me about 4 weeks or so ago. I was on bodybuilding.com reading articles and stuff and decided to go into their forums to look around. I came across this thread called Huge Pass List. I was curious so when I opened it up it had all of these links to different porn sites. I didn't think anything about it and so I clicked on some of them. After clicking on some of them I clicked on one that redirected me to a webpage that logged my ip address and my location and said that I was trying to access their website with a stolen password and that I was going to be reported to someone (I don't remember who)and that I would be investigated. When I started clicking on these links I didn't know these were stolen passwords or anything until I clicked on
that particular link and got that message.I was not trying to do anything illegal. Point is I am really worried about this. Anyone had this happen before. Do you think I will be o.k.

Forget the fact that you were probably using fake/stolen/hacked passwords, you were lucky you didnt get bombarded with spyware.

I would say that nothing will probably happen, but you have learned a valuable lesson: nothing is for free.
