What you can do in the VB admin panel is type in a password and find every member with that password.

Not sure if its related to the current troubles, but earlier in the day when i was trying to log in i found myself logged in as 'comadeep' and i was unable to view posts/profiles etc. I logged out yet i recently noticed this account as being online again, not only that but it also has a post count (2 last i checked) while it was set to 0 earlier in the day(when i was somehow logged on as it). Funnily enough when i try to select 'view all posts by...' it comes up with 'invalid post' or some such and the account doesnt come up when i search the memberlist. What any of that means i dont know, i just find it very strange.

oh well looks like my account is gone for good. I very much doubt 'D' will do anything about it and by the time he does read the PM's this new account would already have over 1000 posts. Its a shame what some people do when theyre bored, congrats, real achievment in your life, hacking a uk-learning members account. Sad.

And if you're lucky d may be happy to merge the 2 accounts together (as he did with AMG and her alter ego)

He probably will when he realises that the accounts were stolen.

Of course, it may not be anything to do with a subscriber, if someone decided to and successfully hacked vienna's account swatfa's and an Sariarch's passwords were in her PMs so were easy to get in to.

Yes that seems the most likely explanation, id be quite impressed if all 3 accounts were seperately hacked rather than just viennas with the hacker happily stumbling along our passwords.

the key here is that the password retrieval emails were altered. even if someone used key logging software it couldnt be changed. there is only one person responsible in this regard.

i did, it was fairly decent, although did highlight a surprisingly poor knowledge of central europe among the subscribers

did any of my PMs get leaked into the subscriber forum?

Yes. To be honest those who share their passwords around are inviting trouble. If vienna wanted access to forum 51 why didn't she just subscribe herself?
