I have been provided with the following concerning reference below.

DGEX has not issued such update. It seems someone is sending out emails in my name - and doing pretty well in copying my style. I would not download any of the wares linked, as it is likely they contain malware. I'm also supposing the Bitbucket repository is not Wesley's, but again the attacker is trying to impersonate him in order to gain confidence in order to spread malware.

Dear DGEX Trader,

DGEX.com is now reopened with a suite of new services and a 100% new infrastructure that should render hacking of customer funds practically impossible. Customers will be given control of their funds at all times through distributed client-side Bitcoin / NXT / FIMK wallets accessible through the DGEX service and shared with its appropriate automation facilities.

TOTP is now included in the Wesley Client. OFFSPRING NXT Client update is following with TOTP.
Mac: https://bitbucket.org/xxx.zip
Windows: https://bitbucket.org/xxx.zip

Thank you for your patience.

Kind regards,

If these bitbucket links have malicious software, why include the full link?

what a scum trying to scam us.
nobody better fall for this or its going to be another bite on us. so much scams recently its getting on my nerves.

In future, dgex should sign a nxt token for emails. and a link to the tutorial on how to verify such token.
nxt token can be used to prevent such scams right?

Haha this email attack would not be a very good excuse...

We are aiming to enable at least partial account access and a new useful, free facility tonight before midnight GMT time as planned in the latest update.

Never have I realized the full degenerative state of humanity until becoming involved with crypto.

Few sparks of light here and there (graviton); for the the most part however, severely degenerative.

May god have mercy on our souls.

Cryptocurrency circles: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

...from the above article:

Quote
We then asked if he has filled DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) records, he responded that he “[doesn't] know what that is.”

Never heard of it myself either, despite its widespread adoption:

Quote
As of early 2013 DMARC had been deployed to protect roughly 2 billion email accounts - over 60% of consumer mailboxes globally, and over 80% of consumer mailboxes in the United States.

Who filled a DMCA request?
