WARNING, ADMIN ACCOUNT HACKED
« on: March 10, 2016, 06:55:56 AM »
Hello,
it looks like Carnth and newb1 accounts were hacked in last weeks.
We are investigating now what else was touched.

This is why inactive admins and mods need to have their accounts demoted.

well that explains where my 110 ltc went for a titan cube ....live an learn....feel free to look at my PM's I'm sure you have access and any other info I can give you

just let me know...I feel silly but i mean really with 20/20 hindsight at the time....probably w/o knowing this would repeat

hell at least I only lost 2 weeks of mining and mined it at 95c an LTC ...not much but I'll take whatever comfort I can get..


anyone else get caught in this ...or am I just by my lonesome :) (bound to happen have had 3 other great deals via this forum and bitcointalk...so guess them days may be past)

whatever live an learn....but anyway do I have any 'company' or am I the only one standing out in the wind bare ass naked?

Well well .. exactly what I told to Sy on on 23th feb. Why should on of two heads of the LA not be able to sign a message - or why should he travel to Germany and takes his titan cubes with him ....

Glad I didn't "buy" a cube off of him when he contacted me.

Looks like newb1 and Smoothie accounts were affected by attacker actions too.
Newb1 already has recovered, Smoothie is temporary banned.
