Taken to Admins account!!! Please help!!!

Post by BC Staff on April 10th 2011, 9:38 pm

Hello there Forumotion, I have an issue that I would like to report that has really made me a feel a bit down and close to losing a friend of mine. My friend, Mark owns a great forum that he broadcasts his own virtual webshow that he advertises with posters in the forum main page. 100% instantly after he had added to the poster (when clicked takes you to the video located in the forum) he told me through live Instant messaging, so I went to the forum and clicked on the poster. I saw that the navigation bar had changed; I was actually in his Admin account. I insist that I didnít attempt to hack, it genuinely just took me there.
He now thinks I have hacked him and of course things arenít going very well, he is not really mad but I know he doesnít really trust me. So I wondered if you guys had an explanation to what happened so I can prove to him that I didnít hack him what so ever.
Thanks so much,
BC Staff

You don't need access to the founder account to change the images. If you aren't the founder you can't change founder profile, buy credits, domain, storage, etc..

You can tell him to check the security in General. Its not going to tell you that you change the navigation bars. This issue you need to solved between yourself. Not much we can do to help.

Sorry but you don't understand my situation. Forget anything about pictures or images. Just tell me do you have an explanation for me being logged into to the admin account (without even asking to be logged in) because of pressing the poster that was linked to the video in the forum?
Thanks,
BC Staff

There is no explanation, because such a thing can't happen.

This is a very strange problem, and I highly doubt that something like this would happen. Could it be, by any chance, that the poster had an "SID" number at the end? It's the really long code that appears in the address bar when accessing the administration panel.

If he somehow posted that, then anyone clicking on it would be able to gain access. But even then, it's still highly unlikely.

ugh...no explanation at all? I mean I am not lying. Why would I lie to you guys, he doesn't have a FM account, I don't think anyway. So it must be VERY rare. It now kinda looks like I am some sort of hacker lol but I am seriously not, I was just interested to know how I actually got into his account. I suggest the staff here actually look into it further because this could be something happening often but people aren't telling anyone, maybe that is how some forums get hacked?

Is your friend's forum with Forumotion? If so, could we see a screenshot of the exact poster which led you to the administration panel. Smile

It is a FM forum, yes. The poster was just a normal poster advertising his show, nothing special. I am not sure if he will give it to me. He did say he could of copied the link from his admin panel and that could be the problem but who knows. If you really need then let me know Smile

Have you logged in as admin before on his forum? Are there any other admins other than him?

I have also checked out the banner and I found nothing out of the ordinary. Has this happened more than once?

No, it hasn't happened. As soon as I told him it happened he put the site under construction to ensure that no one else could get into his account. I guess, it looks like I am lying but why would I lie because I don't think he could even see this lol

I just want it to be proved because me and him have a great friendship and I will be really upset if we don't remain friends for something I haven't done lol

Is there a way you can show a screenshot of what you press before you was in your friend's account?

There isn't an explanation for this as something like this just would not happen. I have been on the forum and clicked on the poster and there is nothing out of the ordinary. I have extreme doubts on whether or not this would actually happen and I don't think it's a problem if it doesn't happen again.

I too, have the same doubts as base. There is not URL that could take someone with no ACP to the founders account and then change the navbar, without the user noticing. I hope you understand how this looks.

wait wait lol forget about the nav bar and forget about the ACP-I clicked on that poster and on the bit where it has your avatar it changed to the founders avatar, I could also see the ACP at the bottom-I didn't click it. I was taken in to the founders account thats it.

I didn't get into the ACP. I just simply was re-directed to his general forum account on his forum, I told him just so he knew I didn't try hacking him. I just want to know that why after I pressed on the poster was I taken to his account

"I was actually in his Admin account."

That sounds like ACP...

Anyway, I'm stumped, there's no technical reason any of us can give you - things like this don't happen. The ONLY possible way is if there was a bug on the server which caused you to login in his account. This is simply impossible, however.

Are you talking about the founder's profile or the administration panel?

Well can everyone see the founder's profile? Maybe I am not understanding what BC Staff is exactly explaining what happened.
