Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I guess 'stolen' in that someone guessed the very weak password on it. I'm not concerned with that, since they (stupidly?) never changed anything, nor sent any emails or anything. I already changed it to something a lot more secure, so I doubt I'll be seeing or hearing anything about it again.
The thing that bothers me is that they used it to make some purchases. Not with any of my CCs or anything, but I have some receipt type emails from an online store. I'm pretty obsessive with checking my purchases and the like, and nothing like it ever showed up on any of my stuff.
That's the thing that bothers me with this. This person, who is quite easy to find on the internet, is using a compromised account to send 'themselves' goodies.
I can only figure out one reason why someone would use a compromised account to send stuff to themselves.
The things were purchased last month, and it's been a good six since last I logged in, so they were already purchased, sent and received, so there's nothing I can do about it. However, it's settling as to why someone who can easily create their own free email account on any other number of places used one of mine to make a purchase.
