Someone trying to login to my account

I had 5 bad login attempts on me. Can someone please investigate this? I believe SecularElitists account has also been hacked, and it is the same person involved.

From my regional message board:

Do not mess the the Nazis nigs or we will also hack your account. Nigs go away

EDIT- I'm sorry, I should have read the "getting help" first. My apologies. Then again, i'm not sure what to file it under. "other" I guess.

Lots of nations are being hacked.

Are you signed up to a ProBoards forum?

I spoke to him via MSN, but for moderation record, no, i'm not.

Hmm. Interesting...

I don't see how he can get your password then. :S

He didn't break it, but the point is that he (If it was the same person as who apparently hacked SecularElitists, and not someone else) tried to.

I don't think there is anything the mods can really do but just watch over him.

I think they can IP ban. There should be enough evidence for that, and they can check logs. If someone from the USA is trying to login to my account, that should look a little strange.

Login failures != nations hacked.

All you have to do to create login failure screens is attempt to log in to someone else's nation. It's a device designed to annoy rather than actually break in. Had the nation truly been hacked, it's more probably that the nation owner would be unable to logon, as the hacker would have changed the password and email address.

I don't know if it's illegal here to deliberately cause login failures on someone else's nation, but if it's trackable, it probably should be. In cases like this one, where it is another component of a planned harrassment campaign, I'd think it's at least worth a warning.

Another nation *has* been hacked though. I do not know SecularElitists well, but he hasn't logged in and called everyone "niggers" before.

And if no warning is given out for this offence, then the posts that have been left on the regional message board are clearly flaming. I don't even know if the person who broke SecularElitist's account actually owns a nation at all.

I don't mean to be pushy, but are any moderators investigating this?

We'll keep an eye on it, Kanabia. It would make life easier if you linked to your regional board...
23-01-2005, 16:08
oh, certainly.

Thanks a lot :)

SecularElitists should no longer be a problem, Kanabia.

However annoying he and his antics were, though... kill whitey is not precisely the sentiment I would like to see again. No warning or anything -- it's just not smart to flame in response to flames.

I am white myself, though :p Kill Whitey is the name of an old band, and I thought someone might catch on.

Point taken though.
