This guy is definitely a hacker. He's breaking into the accounts that are listed on those sites that give you account details so you don't need to register yourself, and accounts with simple names that probably have the same username and password details. Not something that has ever been done before, oh no.

Nah we can't read PMs. These are the things we have logs of:



So don't worry, unless Psy goes rigging around in the database manually, we can't read what you send to each other until its forwarded to one of us.

What are ACP Log In Logs?

They log who's been trying to access the ACP.

Of course... What I should have asked is; what is ACP?

I'm getting an idea, I guess it's Admin Control Panel. Yup, it has to be.

so this guy can hack any account given the password is the same as the username? So he's a sort of hacker, but can't hack us everyday members, right?

Who would be so careless as to have a password identical to their username? Maybe 0.1% of the members.

true, but given how many accounts he has access to, I don't think they'd all have their username as their password.

As long as your password isn't something like ****** or ●●●●●●● I think you should be ok.

This is mine but I've jumbled the numbers up and included a few that aren't really in it > 46283892. You could actually decipher it if you tried really hard but chances are no one will.

It isn't hacking. One of the accounts he got into was called 'password'. I'm willing to bet a considerable amount of money that the password for that account was 'password' as well. Numbers are a popular way of doing it. If you go to a large forum, see if there's an old inactive account called '666' and try logging into that account with the password '666', there's a good chance it'll work.

Well, there are more elegant ways to thief passwords. Mostly what the site records versus what the site doesn't realize it records.
