Account possibly compromised?

Fri Nov 03, 2017 10:52 pm

I just noticed this thread posted:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1377901

It appears to have been posted under my account, although I did not post this thread.

EDIT: I just changed my password, however, if my account was compromised, is there any way to forcefully log out the user who previously compromised my account?
Yes, I wear Fairy Tale Pink IZOD shirts. I am a real man.

Hi 1337Delta764, I am the one who originally posted this thread under my account. I have no clue how it switched to yours. If you look in some of the replies, I was quoted as the topic author. I too am curious as to how this happened! Glad you noticed too.

Nothing has been compromised, it's just a glitch of some kind. It's happened with one other user that I'm aware of. It's a known issue, so I believe they're working on it. In the mean time, if it occurs again, just let us know. We can change it manually, as I've done with the thread in question. Just report the post and we'll handle it.

I've seen this 4 times now - when it happens, the timestamp on the opening post appears to be later than the timestamp on the first reply and, as things are organised by time, the first reply gets shown as the first post and the thread gets attributed to that user in the forum lists. I just assumed it was a server with an incorrect system time.

That's a different issue that seems to have come up around the same time. What these users are talking about is that a post is displaying as someone else. mikegigs posted a thread that for some reason displayed as 1337Delta764.

The issue you're referring to is a sequencing issue. For some reason in a few instances, a reply is being displayed before the OP. It might be some kind of time zone setting issue, but I'm no expert.

In any event, the developer is aware of both issues, so hopefully it will be fixed soon.
