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.

I got the question "what's the last letter of techpowerup", I answered p and it worked fine. Hmmmmmmm weird.

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.

: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?

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*.

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.
Nice catch boss!
