Unless you start posting your bank details online, I wouldn't worry about it. The information that Zebranky got access to is also accessible by Avlis admins, i.e ninja, xarthna and Sunscream. The passwords on the forums are encrypted and not easily (note: not impossible, but very very very very very very very very difficult to decode.)Jo' d wrote:Alex sez:Could we have an informative (think low level internet law savvy here) post with pertinent info, as to the legal ramifications this char 'Zebranky' has opened himself too, by his actions? Do we have anyone speaking with this person in RL? Do we know who he/she is in RL? I have changed all my PWs (copap wide), but still do not understand the tech as to what he learned and any effects it could have on my internet exp or my privacy....Zebranky got a hold of a PW...
...With this he has the ability to reverse the encryption on forums PWs and log in as someone else.
Sorry for what may be lame questions, I suspect Im not alone in the community as to being a little (in truth, 'little' doesnt do me justice, 'seriously' would be closer to the mark) deficient in Techspeak literacy.
Changing your forum passwords was a precaution, not a necessity. There is no risk to your personal information.
