    Has anyone on this board been getting random messages from people on your friends list about a website called Xbox Exploit v2 I got 2 today. I also noticed my rep, that used to be 100% is now 88%. Maybe one of these messages was sent using my name too. this is what happens when we post our screen name on boards like this, last time I ever do that

    They can't send messages using your name without accessing your account and from memory they'd still need both your associated email account as well as password in order to do that.

    As for your rep, if you can't recall any specific reason it was probably some sore looser in a game who chose to avoid you, thus lowering your overall percentage.
    I had a 100% rep myself up until recently (I don't play much online). I was doing really well in a FoC Team Deathmatch against a team with your typical mic-spamming pre-teen. After crying and whining throughout the whole match he ragequit, shortly after that my rep went down quite a bit along with a "unsporting" rating.

    Yeah... That's an obvious phishing website. Most likely those two and any others who've sent out those messages fell for it. The scammers are then using the stolen accounts in order to spread the url to other people on the friends lists. There's probably no relation between those and the TFW boards and if there is, pure coincidence.
