    It appears somebody got into my RA account anf F'd up a bunch of posts and such. I'm pretty sure I know who did it because they also knew my other email address and linked my account to it.If they thought they were being funny I'm not amused. Luckily they didn't erase my log. I haven't had time to look through the community so I hope there was nothing offensive posted. I'll be keeping an eye on my account.

      Right, I didn't see anything offensive, but your posts were strangely null.

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

        Hey juniordo1,

         

        I know some possibilities to your situation. The 'Hacker' could have used a KeyGen C++ Generator. This is coded individually, and if they know your email, they can get in your account easily. It simply goes through all the letters of the English, Spanish, or whatever alphabet you coded the KeyGen to, to figure out your password. It finds out the length of the password, by seeing each and every login you do enter in, and saves it to a .bat file into the core of the program. This is so the program knows which character to stop to. BUT since I know how these work and am a programmer, I know A lot more thing the hacker knows.

         

        I recommend you either change your password to something of all characters and symbols such as: 

         

        b5h7k1m3b5h7k1m3s2l4a9d3x5s2l4ab5h7k1m3s2l4a9d3x59d3x5

         

        ^Those kind of passwords confuse the KeyGen program, thinking that each and every letter is the same, due to the fact that it is in number/letter pattern.  There are SOME programmers which know machine code, which can bi-pass the Key-Gen confusion, and get in to your account. I wouldn't worry about this, because there is almost nobody that knows machine code. 

         

         

        Now, there is also a Data-Logger. This takes information of what your Internet-Protocol Address(IP Address) sends to each website you visit. So if you log into an account the Data-Logger, will save the information in binary code which is very easy to convert into-text, revealing your password/email address. 

         

        To "Trick" your login, I recommend downloading a VPN or IP Masker such as the free HotSpot Shield program: http://www.hotspotshield.com/

         

         

         

        These are just all assumptions of how your account got hacked. The person that "hacked" you account could have just simply guessed you password and knows your email in real life.

         

        HOPE THIS HELPS!
