The passwords were in cleartext?! WTF?! Okay still the admin could tell me if I changed my password after the hack occured. If you could pm me where I can find the database so I can lookup if the password is exposed or not and still the same, i would be thankful.

And the ipaddress would be nice to have, also the http header on login if available. Funny thing is the attacker changed the avatar. It shows part of the mad hatter hat now. Anybody else has seen this behaviour before? Has this any meaning? Is this his "signature"?  Huh

Yes it was in cleartext, thats what a leaked database means. Admin has no responsibility for your account, only you are responsible for your account and for safeguarding it. The database is from long gone now but you might give a shot and try to search in the black markets using TOR browser (for how to do that use google ,it is very long for me to explain it to you here).

Its past 11 pm here in Italy so I am going to sleep. Take your time and be patient.

A leaked database doesn't necessarily mean that the passwords are in cleartext, it only means that the Database is leaked. Normally the passwords are hashed and you need to crack them first. Just FYI^^ Good night and thx for support.

Many people were affected by the said leak and most of them haven't changed their passwords since 2015, including me. Also, hilariousandco cannot do anything in regards to recovering hacked accounts and only and admin can unlock it for you. Best thing would be sending a pm and wait for them to reply. Cyrus and theymos are busy working on in the new forum and it might take a while for you to get in touch with either of them.

so any user who registered before 2015, didn't change password because was not closely following what was happening in those times and didn't post any btc address is doomed to be hacked and have absolutely no chance recovering the lost account.

don't you think these are some very high requirements just to keep your account from being stolen.

i have:
- old email address
- old password
- ID's and contents of my past PM's
- i was logging in from same IP for 4-5 months
- have control of my twitter address in my signature.

and still can't get my account back because i didn't post a btc address in this forum. as far as i understood no past info is kept in forum but i should be able to prove my ownership with different methods, like as i said with PM id's

Great one day later and still nobody replied. I don't know why they didn't make it mandatory to change the password the first time you login. In 2015 I was busy doing other things and didn't really pay attention to what was happening in bct and the hack. My email address is a old one I have no control over. Now I started using my account again and it is now kind of important I can recover it. But instead of anything happening, besides my proof this account belongs to me, somebody else is having fun with it and even though I said it is important I gain back control over it. This is really frustrating. I don't even think the account was hacked due to the database hack in 2015, the passwords were hashed and my password was enough to not get cracked that simple. I do suspect an admin behind that incident and therefore it would even be more important to respond and tell me what happened.
I wrote to 4 admins yesterday, I got 0 replies. I find it hard to believe nobody read my message.

I find the fact that no mandatory password change was being enforced on the users nothing short of absolutely amazing. In 2017, it seems, people are still suffering from that incident. An attacker can just login into your account and steal your messages and compromise not only your privacy but also the privacy of everyone you talked to and you most likely won't even notice. It seems like nobody gives a damn. You say you have been hacked, you write the admins and provide proof and instead of flashing red light turning on, nothing happens. Astonishingly scary.

Good luck. My forum account was hacked last year. I signed a message from a staked address as prescribed, messaged multiple times and waited patiently. I figured they just stopped recovering accounts for people (or maybe mine wasn't important enough).  Undecided

the attacker also has your email address and password combination so you need to change it everywhere else if you're using it.

thank you BCT, really.

Yeah this is really awesome. The admins seem to not give a shit. What wonderful situation to be in...  Roll Eyes Thanks guys, I hope the next time you get hacked the community reacts the same you just do: not giving a shit and moving to another place. Thanks, I will stay away from this place or any place you will ever have any administrative task in.

Contact theymos or Cyrus. They can restore deleted posts so if you can still sign a message from the address you should be fine.

I contacted theymos and also contacted Cyrus now, thanks.

My account was hacked too and i'm waiting a response since 2 weeks.
I still don't understand how is it possible to change password and email of an account without email confirmation. And why admin does not hire someone to do this job and help oldest user to recover their accounts. They are earning easyli 8BTC per week with advertising thanks to us no? Sad.
Of course I did a mistake to do not change my password in 3 years but the price of this fault is high enough.

I agree with your opinion about the work to deal with hackers who always make everyone lose because their account has been stolen. So we should be careful with how to change our account password at least once a week.

Yes, it is twitter, with people using it for crypto related purposes. Much more effective, more content, better discussion environment, no scammers or trolls allowed.

You can start by opening an account and following crypto cobain: https://twitter.com/cryptocobain
And also don't forget to follow me of course Smiley https://twitter.com/cryptomusk

Noone is using BCT for altcoins anymore, coins are getting hyped on crypto twitter without even an announcement thread here

Just tried to login with an account and got a message it was hacked in 2015. Too bad, lost all my post history, but yeah things like this happen.

The cookie error upon registration and all the captcha's dont' really inspire confidence though.

Hi, I got this message when I tried to login my old account and I got this email.
"Sorry Guest, you are banned from using this forum! Your account is locked because it sat inactive for years after the password hashes were leaked in 2015, and was therefore at high risk of being hacked. Email react-vdnp8@theymos.e4ward.com to get it unlocked."

I already sent an email 3 days ago with no reply until I found this thread.
But I dont really get what is signing means,
Can anyone teach me how to sign it? what software do I need?
I still have access with my orignal wallet it is stored in blockchain[dot]info.

Thanks.
