    Looks like the hacker to me. Does anyone know how to find IP addresses - then I can tell you.
    Shouldn't we PM one of the mods to ask them about this.

    Maybe d has created a new Admin in the light of what has been goin on recently and because he isnt able to look after things himself whilst hes away?

    1.) We've had the account hackings yesterday.
    For the last time, they wouldn't have had to "hack" into swatfa's and an Siarach's accounts, as vienna had their passwords in her PMs.

    It should be possible to find the IP addresses of the users with mod access or not using the "nslookup" command.

    No of course not, I'm just saying that theidea of guessing someone's password is rather unlikely. Of course, it does depend on the password, but I doubt it would have ben too obvious. e.g.) "vienna" or anything.

    Just the way you said that made it sound like you knew something to give you that idea (if that makes sense) rather than it being just a hunch/opinion

    Yes sorry, I just read the post now and it did seem quite suspicious. I was just saying that guessing someone's password seems far too unlikely, I doubt Vienna would have made it too obvious. If people like DazYa can hack into hotmail accounts then it can't be immensely difficult to do the same with Forum accounts.

    But then dazya only managed those "hacks" by guessing the answers to peoples personal questions (which are often things like pets name/school name etc etc which might have been revealed here in UKL)

    Yes but there isn't much "hacking" to be done with hotmail - all you have to do is to contact one of the bots and ask it to send you their password and it does it (obviously you need to know how to command the bot).
