so not agreeing on "buying new" is against the forum rules ? "speaking against censorship" is against the rules ?


The issue isn't what you say, but how you say it.


I feel like we can apply that logic to your comment. You know maybe instead of impugning dulun's character just ask if they were breaking forum rules.

So, I don't think there's much to worry about regarding anyone's site accounts. Signs like a social engineering hack to get access to password recovery information for the DNS registrar account.


With control over my cellphone number, the hackers were able to exploit “account recovery” features to gain access to one of my e-mail accounts. Of course, the e-mail account they targeted was the one used for ANN's domain registrar. Once they had my e-mail account, they were able to use it to retrieve the password for ANN's registrar account and then transfer the ANN domain to a registrar in Hong Kong.

They also used my phone number to recover the password for ANN's @Anime twitter account, delete the account, and then rename their own account to @Anime...
Aside from this, the hackers never compromised our servers. They never gained access to anything on our server, no passwords, user info, or anything was compromised.


Theoretically, any admin server accounts could've had their passwords recovered this way. If it happened, they aren't telling. If they aren't telling, last I checked they're breaking a law; as companies have to report data breaches.
