Neopets Site Announcement: Neopets will no longer have updates to the following Languages: Japanese, Korean and Italian. This means that they will no longer have translations of the New Features and new site updates and games. The cut-back may be due to the smaller group of users coming from these areas. If you would like to discuss this matter, you can join the forums and give your opinion.

New Features: Translated by Google
At the end of 2008, the Italian/Japanese/Korean version of Neopets will not be updated. The good news is that however the site and your favorite activities will remain available.

If you can not do without the new content and speak another language, the Neopets site will be updated again in: Chinese, English, French, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish and German. To go to one of these languages just use the drop-down menu "Select the language" that you can find on any page of the site.

Good Merchandise News!

Well, we think it's good news. Claire's is running a special promotion for a limited time... all Neopet plushies are only $5 + your state sales tax! This is a great time to buy if you're looking to get those fab series 6 robot plushies. (I got them for Christmas... and they're pretty awesome plushies.) Click the logo below to find a Claire's near you! Thanks goes to Amanda for sending in this news!

The only bad news about this is that... they might be eliminating Neopet plushies from their stores. But, you can't argue with the discounts! :P

jnSafety Team Alert: Potential Scratchcard Cookie Grabber!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on January 8, 2009, 8:42 pm NST

We have a brand new scam that is taking the Neoboards by storm! This one, I have to say, is pretty brilliant with respects to what is being exploited...

Basically, some scammers are changing their petpages to show a picture of the Pant Devil with a message saying something along the lines of "The Pant Devil has stolen this page! Click here to reclaim it!" The link goes to a Desert Scratchcard, waiting to be scratched by you. The only thing is, the scammers have potentially included some malicious coding in that URL, rendering them able to steal your Neopets account password and gain access to your account.

In short, DO NOT click on any links on petpages, shops, userlookups, guilds, or Neoboards that lead to a scratchcard. One, you should not be viewing them in that fashion, and two, your account may be stolen! Also be warned that not all links will necessarily include the Pant Devil set up mentioned above. Just be wary of clicking any "long links" for now. ;)

If You Clicked: If you clicked a scratchcard link, change your password immediately. You must change it right now. Also, apply a PIN Number to all areas where you have significant NP invested. Even if you didn't click the link, this is a great precaution. You can only be affected by this scam if you click the scratchcard link... so don't!

For the techies out there, The Neopets Team has failed to secure one of the GET variables that the flash scratchcards are using. So, the scammers are able to include their own malicious flash file as a "background image" in the scratchcard that doubles as a cookie grabber. Example:


Sheer genius, really. Neopets basically has to update their scratchcard coding to include some sort of validation to make sure any flash files being included are strictly from the images.neopets.com or swf.neopets.com servers. Hopefully this does not call for an extended downtime of scratchcards like last time!
