Duplicate 'Admin' Username? Is this a hack threat?

Post by BA_admin on July 8th 2011, 2:15 pm

Can someone explain how this is possible? We got a new user registered as Admin while the owner/founder's name is Admin. Two identical usernames. Is this a glitch? a known issues? Or a security loophole in Forumotion?

Im not sure the post above made much sense.

Make sure they aren't using any special characters that look very similar.
also you can sensor username to stop people signing up with a username, its a good idea to sensor 'Admin'

You could change the username for the founder's account.
