Solved A complaint to Forumotion about their security standards

Yeah, nevermind, it was a prank.

Though I have to admit, that was the best troll I have ever seen.

+10 respect for that guy.

I always understood from previous posts on here, that to get access to the forum when the admin control has been lost or stolen, it could only be done via the original founders e-mail addy. So how on earth did they manage to do this?

The second hack still stands tbh, he made an account posing as the founder, complained to forumotion that the forum was hacked, got an admin account and ousted everybody. That was still kinda annoying.

Not entirely sure how he did it though I do know that he knew the founder's email address. He -was- seen asking around for his name and other details.
