Slotegrator Virus Attack

Skype account distributes newsletters with attachments containing virus

Gaming software aggregator Slotegrator has been subjected to a virus attack, a company advisory said, in which its corporate Skype account was hacked.

Slotegrator warns that newsletters containing an attachment were distributed with the following message:

“Hello, we would inform you that we founded some abnormalities. Please check attachment and send me your feedback. Best Regards”.

The attachment “Error-Slotegrator.pif” should, under no circumstances be opened, as it contains a virus, the company said.

In a press release, which appears to allude to a potential conspiracy, Denis Dzubenko, brand manager at Slotegrator, said:

“Dear friends, we are really sorry about the situation. Unfortunately, in our area of business  hacking is not an occasional matter regardless of all the existing security programs. I do not exclude potential attempts to destabilize functioning of the company by our competitors using pathetic ways of destroying my reputation and the reputation of the company in general. Technical support is already working on the issue and we are looking forward to providing you with more exciting news and materials!”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
