Post by Itami on April 12th 2016, 3:38 am

Hello,

So. A forum Ive been apart of has been hacke by a troll member. He has doxed many people's IP addresses & personal information, completely ruined the forum and is publicizing people's personal information. Surely this is illegal and can be taken care of? Here is the forum, http://shinobifablesuntold.forumotion.com/

"“Doxing“ is a legal term that means revealing “documents” about a person. This can range from revealing the name of a person who uses an alias, but more commonly refers to revealing whatever the person doing it feels will harm, shame, humiliate, endanger, or put the person at some risk. Doxing is a form of stalking or threatening and is illegal under many different federal and state laws, depending on the exact facts and location."

It would be best for the founder ask for help since he/she would have important information about the account.  Are you sure that this person has hacked the forum?  Hacking a forum means the person has gain access to a staff member's account.  I did see a topic where someone claims to have taken control over the forum.

The owner's best friend is also on the forum & trying to contact the forum owner because of this. The perpetrator admits to have hacked the account, whether he is lying or not- I cant say for sure. But he is posting people's personal information and pictures of them in the chatbox

Is there a staff member that can ban this member?  If yes, ban the member and move the topics to a hidden area or delete them.

Hi, really sorry to interrupt here but wanted to just state that we now have someone posting incredibly offensive images in the chatbox (same forum obviously) and we cannot do anything to stop them. Is there any way that we can stop them from doing so even without the founder available? Also this hacker took away all privileges from staff, there isn't anyone who can stop him at the moment.

They've posted personal information an pictures of members of the forum and have recently resorted to posting pornographic an very graphic images. At this point, all we can really do is log off and leave the forum. I have taken screenshots and will be notifying the forum owner whenever he responds to my messages. I just wish something could be done soon.

I cannot send a link as he is posting in the Chatbox. I could post a log, but I believe that would be violating the terms?

If he is only doing this in the chatbox, guests will not be able to see it.  When you say the chatbox, are you referring to the default chatbox?

If by default you mean the one that is acessible by becoming a member, then yes. Don't know if this will help, but the one posting pornographic images goes by the name Tang Hao on this site. As far as I know, he is a separate entity from the hacker although they seemingly are good friends.

It would be best for the founder to come and ask for help.

Very well, we'll try to get in touch. Thank you for your help. If it's any help common names that the hacker goes by are Mugen and Gambit.

I hope your issue is solved, If you guys need protection from DOxx, i can recommend using VPN to cloak your Ip adress so he doesnt get ahold of it and dox your internet.

Hey so I just took a look into this topic and I wanted to ask, is anyone able to read any threads as a guest? All I get is a white screen and the page says it is done loading, I am not sure if this pertains to the issue at hand but I do find that to be strange that every other page opens but that one.

Some topics are still like that.

The troll & his friends left(I think) & we've restored the forum to a prevous date. It doesnt look like the forum owner intends to take any serious action in regard to this. So I guess this is "resolved" Thanks.

@Itami,
Well we hope this doesn't happen again. I am glad though that the other people are now leaving your forum alone! Best of luck with the restoration process and I wish you best of luck in the future! Glad you contacted the Support team about this!

Regards,
James
