Title: My old account was compromised While I was gone [Teddy5145]
Post by: teddy.budiyanto on August 12, 2017, 03:53:42 PM
Long story short, it seems like my account was compromised without my knowing while I was gone as the account has made a few posts and even enrolled on a signature campaign. I tried to recover the account but it seems I can't as I haven't received any recovery email(Maybe the main email was changed?)
I can proof my identity by signing one of the old address that I posted months ago.
My last post are from 4th of January, the rest of the posts after that are not mine.

Verified. Next time use a much stronger passowrd with atleat 15 character comprised of alphanumeric with upper and lower case and you can include symbols.

Yea, I was using an alphanumeric password and I don't know how my account got compromised, most likely through a phishing site that I didn't notice I've visited.
Anyway, I've contacted Theymos via PM hope he can sort this out :)

Thanks for verifying it though  ;)

Still no reply from Theymos so far
Should I PM him again or keep waiting?

Be patient, and please wait... You only posted this thread the last day... It's not the only thing the Admins are doing, there are other matters too that needs their attention, not just retrieving hacked/compromised accounts...
I will wait, It's just a panic thing you know
In the meantime is it possible for you to tag the ID?
