(Official Statement from the PURE Admin Team)
Our PURE Discord bot was hijacked today but our team has gotten a handle on the situation, and have restored order to the attempted chaos made by two hijackers.
We would like for our members to take note of the following:
1. Do not accept the invite link sent by PURE Bot, we do not authorise our bot to reach out to members for this purpose (the Discord server shown by the bot does not belong to PURE)
2. Discord admins have been alerted to the situation and may impose a ban on members in the errant Discord server owned by the two hijackers, PURE members are strongly encouraged not to engage with these people and to leave the server immediately in case a server-wide ban is imposed by the Discord team
3. Please help to notify your friends who may have been part of the 280+ members who were erroneously kicked by the previously hijacked bot, to use this invite link to rejoin our PURE Discord server: https://discord.gg/9D3wQB3
We would like to reiterate that the kicks were not performed by any of our admins, and members are reminded not to engage with the hijackers in any form of representation from PURE.
Our bot is back online and security measures are being taken to ensure this does not happen again.
We sincerely apologise for the confusion caused and would like to assure you that our team is on standby to provide you with any support necessary relating to this isolated incident on Discord.
The PURE Team
