    I (and I suspect may of you too) received a message from HRD software to verify my account details because of a security breach caused by Chinese hackers.

    Subject was "[Ham Radio Deluxe 6.X] Account Suspension"

    You will find a copy of the message below. I called with HRD support and they confirmed the message is a scam and are flooded with calls. So DO NOT enter your details on the website linked in the email. If you have already done so, I advise you to contact HRD support.

    Kind regards

    This morning as well.

    NEVER use a link in an email to "Verify your account settings!". If all else about the email looks legit... this alone indicates that it is not.

    Me too, clear phishing email. Also, others are reporting strange behaviour on HRD's website last few days.

    Are they being hacked? Time to change passwords again?
