    the offender is evidently able to access our PMs
    According to the vBullettin website mods and admin can't access users PMs (although they can access reps)...same as they can't *see* passwords (although both can be accessed directly from the server and then decoded using a special program).

    This is getting beyond a joke now! V would be within her(his) rights to take action against UKL for not taking enough action to protect her/his personal information.

    appropriate legal action is being considered, although not by me.

    I stupidly clicked the link out of interest/nosiness - wonder if it was key logged????

    still at least it's united the 'usual enemies' against the idiots!

    Not you.

    This is looking increasingly like the hacker has got access to a mod account...

    Are any mods online right now? If not it might be worth reporting this thread to try and get someone online who can start sorting things out. It certainly looks like edders if the hacker had access to his pms

    Right, have any of you considered that maybe though no mod has declared taht they have been hacked into, it could be possible for someone say to hack into some of the older mods? And use their powers? And no one would know?

    That could be a possiblity but surely if someone like Koloths or Helenbrownsells mod accounts had been used that would be visible?

    Might be being dim, but are you 'our' vienna, or a hack attack?
