Hi all,

someone hacked and stole my account "megacrypto"

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=896800

I was away on holiday and I believe that this hack was done sometime between July 9th and July 17th .... anything posted after July 9th is not by me !!!

The account was obviously hacked for the few merits that I have, and it's now pointing to some ZeroState coin (I posted on their ANN page to let them know that someone hacked my account and is using it to relate himself to their coin ... waiting to see what they will say!!!)

In all cases, whoever is controlling the account megacrypto now does not have all the merits or posts you see ... be aware

If anyone would look into the account's posts , you will easily see that there is a distinct way of writing and interest between before July 9th and all posts after!!!

If anyone could point me to admins who can help me get the account back ... I would be very thankful!!

Be careful all .... Thank you

Follow the steps given by theymos : Recovering hacked accounts or accounts with lost passwords
When DT members saw this thread, they will tag your old account as Hacked so that if ever the hacker tries to scam or do abusive actions, other members will know that it's not you and avoid dealing with that account.


This thread should be on Meta. You'll see the move topic link on the bottom left of this thread.

Welcome to the club (I have also been hacked).

Sadly, it is actually easier to hack an account than to recover it. I suggest you to don't even bother with recovery at all, BTCtalk admins have made it easy for the hackers to win.
 
If don't believe me, try it yourself following the described steps on "Recovering hacked accounts" by theymos. No one is getting any reply, he ignores everybody so far.

Have you staked your address with the compromised account? if so, then post the signed message here. Eventually you will recover it someday. Meanwhile we could let alert other people leaving red trust but 1st prove ownership please.

Why you didn't locked your account when someone hacked it,the recovery maybe needs time but until that the hacker can't use your account for anything,if you didn't then you are late because the link send to your email only work for 14 days I think.
But now you can only make negative trust on your profile by proving that you are the actual owner of that account to DTs,But I don't see any changes in the email and passwords so you can access your account?

Im sorry but im not following? I contacted "theymos" and he pointed me to the https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=497545.0 post which mentions the sending of a msg signed by my staked btc address (which i can't remember which one i used when i created the account back then) ... but what do you mean you don't see any changes to the email? did he put back my email Smiley))

i will check now if i can reset the password Smiley)))

Sorry to hear that.  Sad

From what I've see here, getting your account back will not happen any time soon if ever.

Seems like all the threads with hacked/lost accounts are being ignored.

I tired to login with my original account ... actually tried to reset the password ... it said that account is being approved ... then i tried with all my common emails i used to create accounts with back then and they all gave no account with that email ... im sure whoever hacked the account changed the email otherwise all my attempts to reset the password would've reached my email .... the annoying thing is that whoever hacked it, used it for just a few days and then didn't log in afterwards!!!

The email of the accounts seems the same, if the email change in past X days (I believe 60 but we need confirmation from moderators about it) then on the TRUST's page of the account we can read this


But on your account we have no sign of this thing as you can see



This makes me think about the fact that the mail of the account  has never been changed in the last X days.

@coinlocket$ ... I tried to "reset password" using the username , which should send an email to the registered email under the account but I never got anything on any of my emails!

actually when i first tried to login using my user/pass , it kept saying that either is incorrect , and i started to doubt myself saying maybe i changed my pass and can't remember (usually i have all my pass's in a notebook) so i kept going back and forth but didn't find anything that shows i changed it , so i tried to reset it thinking that i will get an email with reset link , but didn't receive any , i thought maybe there lag in the forum's email processing , so i waited for a day , but nothing came ... so finally i made this account and realized that my original account has been hacked !!!
