GoldTresor is a known software in E-Gold accessing since 2002. Now our software is very stronger than before. It accesses any E-Gold account in a few minutes and give you some ability such as transfer balance or know passphrase. Generally GoldTresor is used for those who forgot their passphrase. Also in new feature of E-Gold site that named AccSent, if you forgot your e-mail or you can't access e-mail account, this software helps you to find your e-mail address or transfer balance to other account.
Thank you very much

In a conversation I had with a friend of mine who runs the syslog.org forum He pointed me to his site statistics: http://www.syslog.org/forum/index.php?action=stats. While we were talking about site usage, the top notch content item of this deeply technical site drew my attention. It is the spam you can see above.
Mutex, the site owner, once decided keep a sample of the what the forum spammer left for him. Very interestingly, over time this seems to have been evolved into a the top page for egold hack downloads. At least if you do a google search "hack egold download", his syslog site is right there in the top spot of the search results.
And what I find really interesting is that this spam accounts for nearly 10% of a quality site's traffic - a leftover just to show off the spammers. And, no, I don't think he gains much from that traffic, at least I tend to think that folks looking to break into e-gold suddenly turn out to be interested in the beauty of syslog ;)
