  • SpinRite v6.1 Release #3
    Guest:
    The 3rd release of SpinRite v6.1 is published and may be obtained by all SpinRite v6.0 owners at the SpinRite v6.1 Pre-Release page. (SpinRite will shortly be officially updated to v6.1 so this page will be renamed.) The primary new feature, and the reason for this release, was the discovery of memory problems in some systems that were affecting SpinRite's operation. So SpinRite now incorporates a built-in test of the system's memory. For the full story, please see this page in the "Pre-Release Announcements & Feedback" forum.

  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

    (You may permanently close this reminder with the 'X' in the upper right.)

Looks like a real domain to me. The ".me" is the TLD for Montenegro. Obviously it would not be a good choice to click (if you had the ability on your device).

I think it's probably a scam/spam/malware message. That's an address to some web page (that I would stay well and clearly away from):
nslookup n7h1k.me
Non-authoritative answer:
Name: n7h1k.me
Address: 192.64.119.196

Here's a quick inspection into the response from that URL. Noted, this can only be done safely from the command line, using tools like curl.

Response from j3d3tr.n7h1k.me redirects to another site:

Response from nqzem.instawhore.net is a shady HTML/Javascript that intercepts mouse and keyboard events. Visible contents are filled with phrases such as:

Code:
We have a lot of horny girls on our site who want to send their nudes to you. Before you see them, we need to ask a few questions.

So... yeah. It's a phishing scam. Stay away from it.
 
I also received such messages! These are scammers, never reply to such messages or click on the text on them. My friend once had his phone blocked. Unfortunately, it was no longer subject to repair.
I found out about it on the website — https://www.familyorbit.com/blog/iphone-tracker/. Here you can sometimes find helpful information on the iPhone.
I still don't understand why scammers are so fond of hacking iPhones. As if there are not enough android users. Although, of course, it would be better if there were no such scammers at all.
