Re: Sheridyn

 

No fancying hacking software, just a password. Looking at the length of it, I wouldn't say it was guessed either.


Ok, I'm inclined to disagree with this statement based on a few things that are inconclusive from just that YouTube clip alone. (I remember reading this thread when the events first occurred, but confess to not re-reading more than the first few posts today)

1) The clip starts after she has already logged in, which could mean that she used a hacking or modding program to learn or re-create the password prior to the clip being recorded and once you know a password, you generally don't need to do anything except remember it (or change it).

2) The clip shows her deleting the pirates, but the accusations (from the first page at least) say that belongings were removed from those pirates before they were deleted - indicating there was a fairly substantial passage of time between the first log-in and the deletion.

That being said, it doesn't mean she didn't just get the password from the victim - it just means that it's difficult to draw any hard and fast conclusions based on that video alone.

Also, posting a YouTube video of "hacking" someone's account is just priceless stupidity.

It's more embarrassing that it took us over a year to find. X_X
