Hello all,

This account BTCinstant:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=334865.new#new   

was hacked and the person is posting messages. I can't retrieve the password from it because obviously they switched it. How do I get this back?

Thanks!

If you have a known bitcoin address what have been connected to your account in the past and you can prove that you really own that address (old messages, pms, etc.), then you can send pm Theymos with a signed message. (I've recently went through this process.)
Maybe an alcoin address can do as well, but I'm not sure about this.

Yes, I was thinking that or an email to the original address that was tied to this.

Neither. Not sure how this guy got it. Dictionary attack most likely

One suggestion. A more difficult password which would prevent dictionary attack. I assume you used a different password for you're email which is at least some good news.

Ya it was pretty weak I have to admit. It's only a bitcointalk.org account but still its annoying watching someone post under your account.

Will thats why I was asking 3 weeks ago if somehow how can I get it back so the person can stop doing it ?  it looks ruined now so forget it I suppose the trade stuff ( +/- caution trading b.s )  and all that there is no going back now right?

I had my videos4btc account hacked the same way and theymos helped me recover it but he went quiet this time.

I can't do anything about that, that's why I said pm theymos. I was able to verify he was sending phishing links through pms today so I banned it, and just wanted to say so. Don't direct your bitching at me just because I bothered to tell you, it isn't going to change anything.

The bad feedback can be removed at anytime.

Not taking a shot at you specifically I was taking a shot at everyone who runs this forum. What does Theymos do all day? I know this forum sits on like 66 million dollars of Bitcoins to fix the forum but someone can't even help out an account that is hacked?   Ya, he was sending phishing links through my pm's.  Great to hear the feedback can be removed.  Doesn't matter its a lost account I'm over this.
