Not if he is able to export the private keys of his web wallet.

Be a bit more specific, please.

What webwallet where you using, i assume blockchain.info? You will need to export your private keys from there in order to sign a message from your account.

Exporting from blockchain.info is rather difficult, but possible, since everything is generated locally in a .json file.

I've used the following guide in the past, you should try it, https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-2l6xOqcbjs9QWEqSh72RD1d8EEdvG_hQuEXw_f_o6w/edit



If you were using a webwallet like coinbase, then yes, you're doomed and there is no way of signing a message with an adress from them.

Yes I mostly use blockchain wallet. I do have access to my private key.

But what I do with it?
I must say I'm not keen to submit my private key to somewhere I don't know.

That topic explains on how to sign a message, you don't need to submit your private key to anywhere.
Sign a message using the address that you used on your hacked account and then contact either cyrus or theymos for recovery.

If he still has control of the original email addy, doesn't that go a long way towards proving his "ownership" of the Bitcoin Talk account?

What is this old tool?  -  Click here to visit Fit to Talk

I've added some more Bitcoin music to Bitcoin Tunes

Yes i would say it does, but it is not 100% secure / verifiable, email accounts such as gmail could get hacked aswell, especially when you use the same password on SITE X, Bitcointalk Z, and gmail account Y.

If the DB of X gets hacked / leaked, so will both your gmail + bitcointalk account ( if the hacker has any brains ), but your private keys / bitcoin wallet won't.
