It is very good to see that this forum is now one of the largest community in world with more then a Million members with us.. so this is very natural that there will be also a lot of hackers/ scamers or cheaters around us to ruin users business and do some fun with them..
We see a lot of users posting that their ID is hacked. This become very usual these days. a very common thing.. lets find out why this is happening frequently these days...
The main point is how these ID's got hacked.. most of us don't want to agree but the truth is in most cases ID's got hacked by users personal messengers or by clicking unknown links in mails on in this forum mistakenly.. even sometimes users gave away their own password to their beloved trustworthy persons!! and start crying here claiming his ID is hacked....
One thing we all should remember.. if its so easy to hack anyone's ID in VBB then why hackers will hack normal members ID.. why not admins/mods or senior member or any big traders of GSM. hackers can cheat a lot of peoples if they can hack their ID instead of ours.. There are no extra or different security/protection on user ID's on VBB
and if anyone really capable of doing this i m sure he wont do it. coz he dont need to earn money this way
So be careful everyone
Just keep in mind that your ID can be stolen only if u done anything from the above points i have written.
- Don't share ur password..
- Don't click on unknown links in forum to prevent key loggers...
- Don't click on unknown links in your e-mail to prevent key loggers...
- Don't run any program until u scanned with a good anti-virus
- Always use a good anti-virus / spy ware program to be safe
- Don't use same password on your e-mail & forum
- Always use crack softwares on ur own risk & and keep in mind that crack soft's may contain serious virus like key-loggers & Trojans
- Always be sure first about the source of any crack software
So don't blame admins every time coz ur ID is hacked.. u can simply request... as they resolved a lot of smiler problems 100 times before and hope they will continue...
Admins got no responsibility if we got our user names stolen for our own mistake... so users are requested to keep the above points in mind for their our benefits.
p.s. this massage is only for peoples who still dont know how their ID is been hacked/stolen.
please revive my ID if anyday my own ID got stolen
