Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, who ties your shoelaces?

You can't do epic shit with basic people.

No once the hackers figure out how to access your passwords, they can see it when you change it. I only do very basic programming. Anything that involves commerce and needs security, I pay a guy. So I'm not an expert. But I know with php, if it's not programmed correctly, generally view source opens up the gates to step one, then another view source to the next step.

A lot of servers stopped supporting Register Globals for this reason. http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/PHP_Programming/Register_Globals

Not sure if this site uses it, but if so, the answer may be within. You can look at the logs and see every step a hacker took. A semi-trained eye can catch it and rectify the problem. It's one of the reasons why when Tom said he was shutting down, I said I didn't have the time to run a site, but knew of several GOOD servers that keep on top of those security issues.

Don't know anyone using ePanel on HostGator for example that deals with security issues like this. I don't deal with posting boards any more for various reasons, but I've never had any passwords stolen from any site, even ones that are attacked by SPAM bots.

Not quite expert enough on programming to easily see what the exact issue was even if I saw the logs. But I highly doubt it's anything sophisticated.

I see people are trying to change my password.  I am rather famous.  I usually go through this on a daily basis.  Photos as I leave my house, screaming girls when I arrive at restaurants...  I guess you folks will get used to the attention someday too.  :D

I guess nothing, I was just showing you all that folks are attempting to register as any of you and to not make your password too easy for someone to access your account/profile...

If they are hitting 550 member 285F that hard imagine how hard they are trying to log in to your facebook account.

I can rest assured that it is indeed absolutely totally impossible to break in to my facebook account.

Should I make it more secure or just leave it alone?

personally i would just choose a password that's pretty secure, but definitely different to any other password you have. Worst case if they get your 285F login...big deal...i think they try to take passwords from these sites because they assume, rightly, people use the same password in many places.

I'd make it as secure as you think necessary, I like secure passwords personally.

Be careful with that.  There was an article in today's Urinal-Constipation where people are taking someones' profile from Facebook and creating profiles on dating sites.
