  • Hackers got's my account

    Damn Hackers!

    Some scarfed PolyFmorf out from under me between 7:30 & 8am EST.

    Which Admin/Mod should I contact?

    Hope no one posts goat porn...

    They already did some ugly stuff with your account over at amps.

    I didn't think you'd do something like that.

      Same thing recently happened to Yngtchie Blacksteen, Mr. Nothing, possibly others. I hope they catch the perp and prosecute (yes, it's illegal).

        They got Hondro in EG. Phil O'Keefe told him "please do me a favor and quit using this one and instead, send an email with an explaination of what happened to forums@harmony-central.com and we can discuss getting your old account reinstated."

        So he may be a good one to go to.

        Good Luck.

            Well, when the dust settles I'll ask to get my old account back.

            I guess I was using the HC 6 digit randomly assigned PW. I changed this account to one a lot more secure we shall see

            Mods have contacted me.

            I was actually online and saw it happen before my eyes. All of a sudden my SIG changed

            :cry: PolyFmorf has been banninated for now :cry:

                Policy enforcement contacted me. They told me not to start a new account and wait a day or 2 because it may suffer the same problems.

                OOPS!

                Hackers were getting into some accounts without PWs

                They're working on it

                  I'm guessing that the site being down with the odd hangover message is related to this affair. These PHP based bulletin boards are notorius for being vulnerabble to unauthorized access.

                  It shouldn't be too hard to find the person/persons responsible, if HC logs all IPs that access the boards. I'd be willing to bet this is some script kiddie getting a laugh, but they aint gonna think it is so funny when the FBI comes knocking at their door, with warrants in hand.

                    you need to contact the mod's or admin.....they are aware of the hacker and are trying to track him down....but you shouldn't loose your moniker because of a hacker......

                        Yeah, they contacted me 30 min after I emailed them. They are working on it. They know I and others didn't post the pic(s). They want to keep all the hackees banned until they plug the hole and then they plan to reinstate.

                              That is totally unbelievable...so what kind of terrorism did these hackers perpetrate in the guise of our respected Polyf?

                              I always change passwords from the randomly generated ones that sites assign....there are too many code generating programs out there to leave that to chance. Even the MS standard mix of upper/lower/numeric isn't really secure.

                              Hackers and virus generators suck
