Extension Warehouse hacked?


#1

Just now I signed onto the EW and selected to see all extensions by ThomThom. I got a strange banner as shown in the attached screenshot. Is this someone’s idea of a joke, or has the EW been hacked?


#2

The hacker must have gained access to the source code of TT Lib (it leaks through the background).
I’m worried what happend to Thomas, is he doing well?


#3

I recall that there is a developer that has a cookie payment option (jokingly) for his free stuff. If I recall correctly that is ThomThom. Scroll down on his bio page and you’ll see that the icon of many of his plugins/extensions are that of cookies.

That’s always been at the top of Thom Thom’s page. Nothing hacked or anything. You’ll notice his “free” extensions are shown as cookieware, too.


#5

So I guess it is his own joke, and he got me!


#6

I fell for it once also. And I think he is fine and on vacation (last I knew.).


#7

I wonder how many cookies ThomThom’s cookieware generate. Of the perhaps 3 times I’ve met him I’ve never seen him eating one :open_mouth: .


#8

Did you bring him any?


#9

Hmm, I should have done that. From now on, every time on of us meets TT we give him a cookie :stuck_out_tongue:
