I just thinks its funny and you would want to change your password every so often. So that your stuff doesn't get stolen. Or if your myspace gets hacked there's not really a point into hacking it. Its like oh wow I can hack Myspace. >.> I don't see what a big deal it is if someone hacks a myspace.
They may be able to get your photos and use you on the internet. But if you don't put them up you don't have a real chance into something like that to happen. But I've been hacked twice and I won't let it happen again. x.x
See that's the thing about hackers too... A hacker (to which I got a buddy who hacks things on gaia and he says that concidering that it's just pixels and nothing too important gaia is hard to hack) only needs your I.P address to ******** with you, and if memory serves me right... your IP (unless your going out of your way to hide it) is very easy to get a hold of.
It's a bit more complicated than that. They would also need to be able to access your computer through the internet so they'd be able to get your keystrokes. However, this way isn't bulletproof either, because obviously every1s is traceable. If you send in a report about being hacked, they may find that you logged in under a server outside of your normal location, and be able to track that person down. Well, at least assuming some of the gaia staff can do that (which I'm sure many of them can seeing how they can make such intricate layouts).
Now, I'm not sure if they actually do do that, but I'm just saying, it could be done. Most likely off of a normal computer like yours or mine.
These hack-assers should know that the Gaia Staff already has your password and can't loose it. They can see you do anything. If these jerkwads are smart enough to put Admin's avatar in a PM, they should know this.
Yeah and thats why they never ask you for your password. Your passwords are stored on their servers so the only ones that are able to retrieve it are the moderators.
As for the "jerkwads". They are smart enough to know this, it's just that not everyone else is smart enough to realize that its fake. That is why so many people lose their items. I bet majority of them are little kids.
I watch my sister's account & one day she called me from home saying that i needed to get on her account... I am in a computer graphics program & some of my classmates find it funny to make it seem like they are mods to test my wits.
Turned out it was a hacker..... I sent a remote virus over the AIM I found on their listing.. Outsmarted them & reported them.
Best way to get to a hacker in my opinion... break their computer with viruses, worms, & trojans... *Evil grin & laughs*
u seem like a good friend to have
It is the best way to deal with them.... if you work with programming.. & have a few friends in the internet secturity send out the virus for you...
Surely Gaia will do something about the scripting. But lately I haven't seen any improvement. I happen to know a lot of scriptors in Hollywood. And obviously people have reported them, yet they never get caught/banned. Is Gaia inviting these arrogant fools? The scriptors can actually redirect people to sites and other harmful places. Not to mention how they also post pictures of porn, etc. This is wrong, kids play this game. We don't need immature, contemptuous people like them. I also looked up on how the mods respond to reports. Mods need "evidence" in order to ban people. I reported one person for scamming me, but no action has been taken. I'm not saying the mods aren't doing their job, but it would be nice if something would be done. I try to give detail and "evidence" in a report, but perhaps it's not good enough to be read. I hope for a better tomorrow in the world of Gaia.smile
