With all the hacking happening lately and time it takes to recover the accounts such a list could be useful. Other users would know which accounts were stolen and:
-wouldn't allow them in sig campaigns / wouldn't pay them if they're already in
-would give them a temporary negative trust until the account is given back to the rightful owner
-wouldn't get scammed by them

I think we should do what we can to make it as unprofitable for the hackers as possible. What do you think?

Sorry if I'm missing out on anything but does all this hacking stuff happening lately has some particular reason behind it ? Any conclusions drawn yet ?

I think we should do what we can to make it as unprofitable for the hackers as possible. What do you think?
How did the accounts get hacked in the first place ?  Like is there any pattern or something common between all the hacked accounts ? Please link me to relevant stuff if you can.

-would give them a temporary negative trust until the account is given back to the rightful owner
This already happens since some DT users (KWH for example) monitor the Meta section and tag accounts that have been reported to be hacked with proof.

Which also solves the other two points

-wouldn't allow them in sig campaigns / wouldn't pay them if they're already in
-wouldn't get scammed by them
No reputable signature campaign would accept/pay someone with overall negative trust.
Potential tradepartners should always check the feedback of an account they trade with, and would then notice the warning.



Imo, such a list would only be a waste of time and energy.

Just some simple standard deviation. After all, accounts are hacked all the time and people do make threads... but just in this particular time period, a lot more people notice it (or attempt to recover their accounts {and it could be slightly because they see threads about hacked accounts and follow the format} from the hacked status) and hence post more often in Meta.

I thought it would be a good idea to throw all users that are waiting for their accounts to be returned into a single thread. I've read it can take a week or two before staff handles a request, which is a long time. Enough for the hacker to make some money, some damage, or both.
I agree it would take a lot of time and effort, probably more than it's worth, because the accounts that would be returned to their owners would have to be deleted from the thread = constant management.

Email address can be changed simply with the password of the account, while logged-in.

There are less hacked accounts than in the past. Security features seem to be effective.
When email or password is changed, notification with locking link is sent to original email account to owner.
Read also, that old accounts with long period of inactivity are locked now.
As we can see on meta is, that those security features are working well.

Account hacking incidents have been already decreased after the introduction of new security features. Even if someone manage to hack the account, it will be useless for them as the original account owner is able to lock the account. These account security features should have been introduced earlier in order to make this forum hackers free.

With the amount of accounts being hacked then this would likely have to be a community maintained list. Plus, not all accounts are made public if they have been hacked or not. The person who was hacked can always contact the signature campaign manager and let them know their account is compromised with a signed message to verify.

Anyone who has lost their account can get it banned provided they have sufficient proof whilst waiting for it to be returned to prevent any scams.

My account was involved few weeks ago. Fortunately I managed to retrieve the account with the help of admins. I do not know what happened, my mail was deleted from account and I was unable to retrieve login information or password change..

May i ask if this security feature is still in place now?  When a hacker changed the registered emaill address,  an confirmation email will be sent to the original email registered on this forum.  May i ask also if the admin has a list of BTC address of all users?  so when the hacker changed the btc add,  the recovery process will be easy.

When an account changes it's password a email is sent to the email on the account with a link which can be clicked to recover the account within 14 days of changing the password. (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2282758.msg23164732#msg23164732)

Admins probably don't store Bitcoin addresses of users, because lets face it they change so often. What administrators can do is check whether a Bitcoin address has been edited recently and investigate whether that was after the alleged hack.

Wayback 2015, if I remember correctly, there had been a database hack in bitcointalk where sensitive information had been up publicly and some are sold or up for auction in deepweb. After the incident, the forum had tighten the security and warned the users for possible hacks so they advise the users to change their passwords. In some cases, accounts who have not been accessed since that day was locked.

But why are they trying to recover it years later? Here's my guess: Bitcoin has grown popular lately so they decided to go back and start here in the forum where they had formerly registered but unfortunately it was hacked but since they had discovered that there are signature campaigns paying them which the rates are higher base on your rank so they decided to give it a shot and try to recover it.

P.S. You can try searching for it for more info.

P.P.S. I am not saying "all" but rather "most."

The answer was provided by Welsh indirectly. If you read the link, you'll see that it was implemented on October 18.
