And how did it get hacked? I assume you either shared the password or use the same password at multiple sites/programs?

Password was hacked last year from vb.org. I changed it all over except I forgot to do it on Skype. He had contacted me before with a stolen script from Dbtech he wanted me to convert for 4.2.0. When I ignored him he took over my skype and changed password. Unforunately a customer had his site access on it and the piglet destroyed the site. When you do a view source you see the punk signature p0wersurge. He also tried to contact some legitimate customers of mine.

I was contacted as well along with a current staff member from vb.com not too long ago. Its not details from vb.org, its actual details from vb.com database when it was compromised (imo). When they contacted me, they pasted my 1) Password at the time the site was hacked 2) Answer to my security question on vb.com 3) My Customer Number and all associated license numbers. I'm not personally aware of vb.org storing our security answer from vb.com database, so this is why I assumed when contacted that it came from vb.com database and not the vb.org db or tables if sharing a db etc.

So its scary yes, but this is also why it was stated long ago for you to change your passwords to those pertinent areas i.e. members area and such.

*The key thing to remember about skype is that, simply accepting friend/contact requests will not have your skype account hacked... accepting attachments and downloads from said people can though so ** DO NOT ACCEPT anything not even a file or click on a link they sent you IF you do not know them **.

I'd imagine Lionel that your skype account had the same if not very very similar password to one of the compromised accounts, I had changed all my passwords long ago even before they contacted me but I forgot one, as I prefer facebook over twitter and rarely login there I forgot to change my twitter account password - it was the same used on vb.com back (I rarely use the same password but when I did twitter I did a quick and crude run-through on new acct etc) then and about 2 months back a email notification from twitter about unauthorized logins tweets so they locked my account - I promptly requested a new password and sorted that issue.

Needless to say, you all be careful and don't click on links, accept anything incuding attachments from people you don't know OR just literally added on skype. If dealing with a hacker, I don't care who they're, what they want from you or what DB Tech or any other companies mods they try to attach and send you - DO NOT ACCEPT.

Edit: If you have accepted any files in situations like this - Stop what you're doing and promptly google how to do a BOOT-TIME scan using your current anti-virus software, do whatever steps it takes to get that scan going and be patient. The reason why I say this is viruses and malicious programs can be transmitted via those files you just casually accepted and a program could literally be running on your pc now doing whatever it was designed to do - and no its not anything good.

That's a guess on my part. The reason why I suspect that is, why would the vb.org db have all that info within? License Number for license verification perhaps but not all of that... my security question answer and all that? My password to vb.com from that time as well? Now way imo.

I remember seeing comments back then about a test server database being hacked, that may be the case I'm just not sure why those type of details would have remained in a test instance to begin with honestly.

Edit: I find it laughable that they continue to parade and gallivant around posting threads in BOTM and such wanting to be "seen" and "acknowledged" yet the only way that ever happens is by making complete fools out of themselves rofl .

yes he is a member here. And he had the guts to post a link to his site in the November BOTM. Last year I posted about being hacked and if my memory is good someone else had that issue.

What I do not get is the fact that vb.org is letting the link to that hacking site display for all members to see

Leave it up, I basically discredit them in the post below it so anyone whos anyone or no one at all should be able to read and get the gist of the situation i.e. they're ftards and nothing more. What's funny is they "hid" that hacking/null forum via permissions to try and get into BOTM, was insulting to say the least.

I thought that might be the case, sadly for me I never changed twitter but thank goodness after two bogus tweets twitter locked the account. Edit: Stop for a few minutes... any other sites or software you need to change the password on? Think hard and make sure because if not since you're now their joke of the day, they'll be trying that password elsewhere as well.

I feel for you my friend, I surely do .

*I sure did, I won't post links to that site, he posted the link. Like I said before - I discredited them via the quote - if anyone follows the link then its because they're not a stand-up type of person to begin with.

He sent the file but I never opened it, knowing that was stolen from DB Tech

But you accepted it i.e. initiated the transfer via clicking on the button to do so? No matter I would run the scan. I'd hate to see you change passwords (in worst case scenario) to everywhere then a week later to only see yet another account hacked because something existed on your pc giving them access to your daily activities and such.

Basically run the scan on the premise of "Better Safe Than Sorry" and even more so since you're like me and provide services, its not just your pc and details at risk its your clients as well - I've been down upwards of 72 hours before running scans and such to be sure i.e. just in case, like I said better to be safe than sorry and that also ensures your clients pertinent info is kept safe as well .

*Consider using Basecamp or similar for project access and details to be shared in, via email or skype is not advised.
