    Compromised Accounts

    Vladimir Putin and his minions have been busy hacking accounts and then posting in Gear Swap. More details here: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...OPPERS-MAGGOTS

    Read these wise words:

    If you have been logging into the site with h00k3rs4nd8L0w since 2003, please update it to something unique so we can stop these fuckers. And, feel free to report any too good to be true FS listings.

    To change your deets,
    - in edit settings of the form <- then go to email and password
    - then change your password at the top

    That should get you back into the app and forums, etc. So easy a dentist could do it.

    Good luck and stay safe.

    Hey Mods. BMills needs a little help. He changed his password to run from the Russian bots and now his posting privileges are revoked. Can any of you fix that? I mean, I think we could all use a few BMills free days, but helping him out is probably the right thing to do.

    He's going to have to come back as BeMills now. He pulled an Iceman.

    It took me a day before I got logged out of the app and had to sign in again with my new password.

    It's a feature, not a bug. Culling the herd.

    I figured it out, and my new Russian friend only scammed $400 from a mag who didn't know me, and who bought alpine bindings from a telemarker with someone who has never had a venmo account and didn't even have goods and services prevention, and, which pissed me really off, is that I have never been hacked, and every single security flaw has been a TGR thing. It's on the TGR side. Hell, I've never sold a thing on gear swap, only given things away for free.

    Fuck their lazy ass shit. I don't care if this place gets yanked, or is free, because if people are actually getting fucked, via very personal PM's, WHICH THEY ARE, there is more than a server door collection that is required to make this place remotely viable.

    Or institute a major recommendation that paypal goods and services and a phone number and conversation occur via pm before doing a gear sale.

    Haha! Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

    No ötzi moment here. Yet.

    Thanks EWG and Danno for the help. Not sure if it was something y’all did in the server closet or not but I tried logging out of every device I may have ever used to access this place and then logging back in only on the desktop this morning and that seemed to do it.

    I believe my choices are:

    1) Leave my password as is and risk being impersonated.
    2) Attempt to change my password and risk getting locked out forever like iceman.

    Hmmm.

    I took the leap of faith and changed my password (I think). I used a desktop computer and went through the previously mentioned steps. I did get an error message, but it appears that was after my password was updated. I logged out and logged back in, but was then presented with a login page *again*. Definitely not the smoothest process. At least I didn't experience iceman's fate.

    I changed my password and now I can't log in on mobile web. I end up in an infinite loop. "Thanks for logging in, Kevo" and then I am taken back to the main forum page and I'm logged out. Any idea how to fix?

    Yeah. It's weird. I changed my password after hearing about the compromise, but now can't login on computer at all, but mobile app lets me in. Full site keeps saying my password is incorrect even though same pass works on mobile. Hesitant to change it again.

    Just wanted to let you all know that I bought the hacked TGR accounts from the Russians for $37 and 12 pounds of bacon. American bacon - they didn't want whatever the hell that canadian crap is.

    Anyway, I think it's a good investment. I plan to sell Benny's account to the highest bidder.

    Also - it's turns out iceman's old password was "jorDAch3".

    On the whole iceman thing, the mods have deked the fuck out of me twice on that in recent memory. A few months ago, one of them PM'd me that they thought they had figured out how to reanimate the man of ice, and they'd be in touch about it shortly. Months passed and nothing. I kinda had my hopes up at least for an opportunity for humor. Oh well.

    But then, about 10 days or 2 weeks ago, one of them PM'd me asking if I knew what they they had done to fix iceman, because somebody else had the same issue as he (I) did. Seemed odd that they would be asking me what they had done, but I just said, shit, nobody bothered to tell me it's fixed, I have to try it! So I tried it, and nope. Not fixed.

    I think they're just fucking with me now.

    Yea so, that thing I said a while back (or maybe recently) that pissed you off. You know who you are, I don't want to call anyone out. I was all, why is he/she so pissed at me?
    Turns out that was HackerBots. Sure am relieved to find out I'm not a douche after all.
    We're cool now, right?
    I feel like we're cool.
    However many are in a shit ton.
