I mentioned being contacted via skype, also that I wasn't sure if the vb.org db had all that info within it - when I said:

I meant that vb.com was hacked more so than vb.org in my opinion, if ever at all due to how many vBulletin customers who have public info about them i.e. businessmen or similar are being contacted via skype and exploited, threatened, and harassed.

Force then replied with:

So I replied saying it was a guess (if you just said vb.org does not store it therefor it basically accesses the license info to verify if a customer is licensed and can participate on this site):

And here we are now:

So to sum it up, vBulletin.com database was either directly hacked OR whomever cloned the main DB to make a test server DB left all the pertinent info within said test DB which was not a good thing to do, in the case the test server was hacked which I mentioned prior in this thread remembering seeing someone from vb.com staff post regarding that being the case - case in point all that "pertinent" info is now the hackers and if it was hashed or protected in any way then its surely not now, myself, Zachery, Lionel and others have all been contacted via skype by them and had our passwords from vb.com at the time it was supposedly hacked shown to us via skype directly hence, not hashed/hidden anymore - Being contacted is not something you want to be bothered with or inconvenienced by in the least. I'm not trying to stir up a fuss about this however I just had to comment and let Lionel know they've done this to others because I've known him for quite a while and I just knew they tried some similar BS that they did with myself, Zachery, and a few others including Lionel now.

vbulletin has never said that.

(unless you really want to be pedantic).

Technically you cannot decode them, but if you have access to information from the database, you can brute force them until you get a hit.

I changed my PC but I did loose customer. He had 6 sites on server. The past 5 months that account was paying me 1200.00 a week, work or no work, just to be there on request. I suppose he got upset. I saw that piggy posted a job request. He probably is looking for another victim. Eventually someone will chop his hands

His 6 sites got destroyed. Luckily other server was IP protected and I never worked on third server which is a 70 millions / year site

The punk had redirected all sites with some stupid cartoon stating: Blame Lionel, all his customers are being hacked.

I got a Lenovo with 8 mgs of ram, 1 terabyte (lucky for me all my important files are on a portable file of 1.4 TB) and windows 8. The scan that I did on old one was cleaned but I changed it anyway

And it's also great that both you and PaulM broke that myth about passwords being uncrackable.

I like Trilian too, but 99% of the time they use skype and contact you via it.

Right, but they can't do anything to you, through Skype at all if you're not using it. They can't penetrate Trillian. I don't even have Skype downloaded to my computer, see. They are on Skype, I am not.
