    While the domain ( hostnit.com ) is authorized, the other domain ( web-h.ca ) is not authorized, to be using WHMCS.

    Welp.

    Figured out they acquired SilverKnight that I had service with, and ofc. they acquired PremiumVM too.

    Hopefully not hacked and just some admin gone wild..

  • I received this email as well and immediately ran a whmcs check it said the domain was unauthorized to use whmcs.

  • they ran a follow up email saying "their database needs fixed"...

  • @ihatetonyy were you a customer of PremiumVM or any other company they aquired?

  • LeeLee Veteran

    As they just bought PremiumVM maybe it's that database they are getting your info from.

  • Yeah, I was a customer with Silver Knight.

    They lasted a lot longer than that. They were Ruby Ring Tech/Just295 and then renamed to SKT.

    Looks like they sold off their hosting operations to focus on streaming media CDN.

    You mixed up something :) silverknighttech.com name was in use almost year and half and by the way owner's name was also Anthony :P I remember them listed at LEB under Ruby Ring Technologies name 3 years or so ago then as Just295 like @ihatetonyy said and finally consolidated everything under silverknighttech.com brand.
    If I am correct they never closed doors in those years, just rebranded.

    edit
    Just found short explanation why rebranding:

    As far as the rebrand, long and short, some internal owners being release forced us to change names. Trust me it sucks to loose a 5 year old company/domain with no negitive publicity.

    Seems most likely. That e-mail is worded very poorly...

    my VPS is unaffected... but just received an email saying "Billing & Support Database Compromised", it's too long to copy and paste, it seems they were affected by the latest WHMCS bug.

    Apparently whoever hacked their DB started issuing refunds. Bit pathetic really, as it's probably another provider, probably one that considers themselves "better".

  • I was with PremiumVM too, and got both the spam and the notice that the database had been compromised.

    PremiumVM clients will hear more shortly.
