Strange to see TPU as a target for hacking.
and i didn't type it in
And they keep asking me why I hate hackers.. (the offensive ones).
Now, I wonder what was my old password.. I had the site set to auto-login, so I haven't got a clue >_>
shit happens ...
I'm guessing the hackers thought W1zzard had hid the location to his stash of hookers and blow on the forums.
Then proceeded to inject code for banners in order for it to look like a common attack.
After some stumbling and that login dialog box popping up, I'm back in with a reset. Bastards.
I went through the password reset procedure and by the time I clicked on the link to reset the password, I was greeted with a password prompt for "Forum Admin Area" even on the main domain. Waited a few minutes and the prompt disappeared.
Yep, I did the same. Anyway I just changed the password so I hope everything's well.
wanted to get new password back and checked my email and someone was trying to get in multiple times and could not which caused it to go into lockdown mode, took a while to get in it.
annoyin dumbass hackers
Silly hackers now w1z is going to hunt them down and beat them to death with their own pc.
Stuff some vid cards down their necks!
Just in case I also changed my email password.
this sucks..but thanks for the heads up..
I am sure is it SETI team, cause we were in advance, wanted us to focus on hack instead of Crunching
(Joking if SETI team is looking )
I wonder why anybody would want to hack TPU?
Hackers are the sex offenders of the computer world and need to be KILLED!
This really sucks that our community was hacked
Thanks to those in power for the quick action and for disabeling passwords
Now I am trying to remember if the password I used here is being used for anything else......
This is terrible. I admittedly don't frequent the site as much as I would like but I still took the time to change my password.
sometimes to get access to some origin and steam accounts retards hack sites like TPU because some of us have the same steam names as our account names and sometimes they get lucky because some people will have the same passwords as the forum also meaning they get to steal your steam account and they resell these accounts on sites on cracking sites like crackers and goldenjoint, if you bag about 100 accounts sell them before the owner takes them back you can make a ton of money, they also try to get the emails and change the passes on them and then sell those also.
they're just dirty idiots and need to vanish.
The hacker's motive was basically to get into vBulletin admincp, and plant Google Adsense ad-frames that earn him money. While those ads lasted, he may have made a few coins.
Wizzard must have made some enemies in college.
so did you find that in there bta
We're implementing bank-grade security as we speak.
I was just thinking I should change my passwords, now I have a reason too.
Kudos for being pro active about the situation.
Yeah, Sony and NVIDIA taught us how not to speak to our readers about the situation.
Separate names with a comma.
