Hello,

Anyone can help me there ? I received an e-mail this afternoon claiming a man changed my e-mail adress on my bitcointalk profil...then a second mail claming it changed the password too...

I was able to lock my account.

1) How can i recover my account ?

Probably a hack ! Security fail on the forum ?

I'm software developper and no malwayres or other on my pc....no phishing web pages or other....

If anyone can help me.

Post the username here, and a signed message of the account. Following this format: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=497545.0

If you can provide this information then your account could be unlocked. However, it might take a little while due to the amount of requests that the staff are having currently.

Hi,

I never set pgp key on my profil, so cannot sign a message.

Anyway, it's not a problem to use a new account on the forum....Btw i'm afraid of a security issue.

How my cannot was hacked ?

you probably used the same email and password to sign up to websites, one of them sold his database to hackers or got hacked.
it doesn't make sense if someone found a Security flaw in bitcointalk, he will not go for a full member rank account.

Could be a variety of ways that you could of been compromised. Have you downloaded anything which might of been able to compromise your account? Have any of your other accounts been compromised? Possibility of compromising your login details through a phishing website.

I see the account has posted on a few altcoin threads, and downloading clients for these have been known to compromise passwords for both the forum, and Bitcoin. It's almost certainly nothing to do with the forum.

I am willing to bet that most of the recent account hacks are due to the new auto reply bot, people are idiots and have tried to automate their garbage posting business just to get more money out of this forum. no mercy for hacked accounts, once your account is hacked nobody will ever help you to recover it.
