    At 10:08 he wrote this. 1 minute later, he was viewed multi-logging with another banned member. Has Prodigy messaged any of the admins to change his password? If not, I'll deal with his problem and help him get back to his account, but I'll still need his password to be changed please. Thanks

    Im talking for prodigy,

    i changed my pass
    but my account was linked to classics, and itzdeceiver because
    i used them to tlak to plodez
    so my account was banned again because my ip linked to previously banned accounts

    p.s i think classics and itzdeceiver need to be unban also for me to stay unbanned.

    Oh, it's true. I have all of the evidence in a nice little notepad ~
    The admins haven't made any effort to let the community know, so I haven't either; but the way this thread is going it seems like it might be released.

    The security issues that multiple users are experiencing are directly related to them not following basic security guidelines.

    Since this is an ongoing investigation our goal is to deal with the issue at the source, so we will not release additional information at this time (thing).

    The best advice I can give you right now is to:

    1. Change passwords regularly
    2. Use different passwords and email for different accounts
    3. Do not click on any unsecure/unknown links or websites
    4. Do not reveal answers to security questions via social networking

    Storing the different passwords on a notepad and copying and pasting them when logging in is probably the safest means to protect your account security.

    Sounds like common sense, but it would probably prevent 99% of our security breaches and it is the best way to protect yourselves and other members.

    As always, anyone who needs help with changing their email, password or any other account related inquiry can contact any member of our staff at any time and we will be glad to help.

    Funny, you are basically saying it's the users fault their ko4life account got compromised, in fact it's not.
    ko4life got hacked a while ago, you should know about that plodez, considering that someone also had access to your paypal and msn :lol:

    I did not follow the basic security guidelines that I recommended above, which is exactly why I am urging people to do so.

    It took a lot of time and work to correct the damage that was done, and I am trying to help other people learn the lesson that I did.

    It is no secret that the forum staff are bigger targets because of our status and therefore we need to be extra vigilant in protecting our accounts.
