Zhou Mi is unlucky with all things internet: qq gets hacked by a scammer.

Zhou Mi, seemingly, is not very good with internet safety.


Earlier today, it became apparant that Zhou Mi's qq, a kind of instant messaging service, was hacked. The hacker claimed that Zhou Mi had no money and desperately needed to borrow some, leading to one friend being scammed out of 8,000RM. The warning was quickly spread across weibo. Evidently, Zhou Mi has a second weibo account as Liu Chao posted a screenshot of Zhou Mi warning his friends that his qq had been hacked and no one should send money, adding "Mimi, you could just buy a lottery ticket...". This post was quickly deleted. Zhou Mi's second weibo is seemingly hidden from searches and friends lists, so at least he's mastered the art of privacy settings, even if aliases and secure passwords are a foreign concept.

This is not the first time Zhou Mi has been the victim of hacking. In 2011, Zhou Mi's weibo was hacked by an anti-fan who left a post slurring ex-bandmate Han Geng, attracting a lot of negative attention towards Zhou Mi, causing him to purge his account and stop posting publicly on the internet.

This sucks because it's bound to put Zhou Mi off ever being a public internet presence again, since he does keep on getting hacked, and a friend being scammed out of money is bound to freak him out.
Liu Chao's post made me laugh, though. It's a shame it got deleted with no one screencapping it.

Liu Chao's post is perfect, haha. This sucks so much though! He's probably the person in the entire kpop community who least deserves all this hate and venom :(

Omg, LC's post made me lol so much. Mostly becuse it's really easy to imagine him getting these messages from the hacker asking for money and him raising the issue to Mi, and proceeding to make fun of him, and then Mi screeching at him for kind-of-re-posting the message from his hidden weibo.

I think this will bother Mi a lot more than the hate messages and booing bothers him. He seems really good at brushing off hate directed purely at him, but this has been an attack on his friends and that's the sort of thing that will really upset him.

ikr, I just want to steal him and shower in with the love that he deserves ;(

....in a completely non-sasaeng like way T_T

:( same. He's so lovely to his fans when he meets them as well. Mitangs sem to be good and non-creepy but I would go beyond my usual passive fan behaviour for Mi just so he knows he is loved ;A; bb gets too much hate.

this happened to my friend too, and he also asked for money.. though not 8000. but god, zhou mi can never catch a break can he? :/

but wow, i'm impressed that his friends actually gave him 8000 like that without being suspicious O.O

Why is it ALWAYS fucking Zhou Mi? That poor boy STAYS getting hacked. I wish they'd just leave him the fuck alone! He's done NOTHING to warrant this mess esp. on a repeated basis.

*hugs MiMi*
