    People who use gluttonous consumption to celebrate the slaughter of humans makes me sick.

    TPU hackers are a close second. :D

    Hey erocker, when you get a chance can you verify the email address for lazzer408? Hurry up or I'm going to drive up there and throw turkey legs at you. :p

    Until this is fixed, you're effectively "banned", aren't you. How frustrating, you poor sap, lol.

    I had some trouble resetting my password, because it didn't like the answers to the ridiculously easy challenge questions.

    First one was what is the colour of snow? I answered white and it didn't like it. I then refreshed it and got asked what's the first letter of techpowerup. I answered t, but it didn't like it, nor T either. Third time it worked - and I can't remember what that question was, lol.

    Wow ... those are tough, Q.
    Luckily it just asked me for the HLSL code for real time, multiple light source shadows on semi-transparent objects, which is a no-brainer.
    qubit, Crap Daddy, Assimilator and 2 others say thanks.

    I stupidly forgot or was too lazy to change my email info on the forums here so it was a little longer for me to fix but thanks to how quickly W1zzard answered my email to correct the matter, I'm back! :rockout:

    Thanks again W1zzard for the amazingly quick response!! :respect:

    The only other account that may have had the same password is my Origin account. Honestly not worth the effort to change...

    :wtf:
    i got asked what is the best search engine and it was okay with "google",
    anyway i see that it was serious for some people like Lazzer and Lionheart as they can't access their account, is the email pw ok or should we change that too?

    Would like some more detail on how the hack was carried out. Was it via a vBulletin vulnerability, if not, what?

    Sorry to hear about the hack, at least you found out and let us know quickly :)

    Good to hear the passwords were hashed and salted - even if they do bother to brute force it with GPGPU it will take longer than if you'd stored 'em in a good old fashioned plain text file *glares at sony*.

    Heh, tried to logon earlier and couldn't... didn't bother reading anything so I freaked a bit, created a whole new account using my folding nick CamelJock, logged on and then saw the info.. I must learn to read!

    I'd PM W1zzard dude. Your account sounds 'compromised'.

    Screw the hackers ... this is TPU ... we don't give in, we don't give up and we never surrender.
    This is for W1zz, the entire staff and all the active members who make TPU the best place to be on the internet.
