have the hackers taken over myspace? one of my frineds profiles got hacked and his profile name got changed to a gay reference and is now posting bulletins every five minutes promoting sites that promise: "horny tickling". i've noticed that on most of my friends profiles, that at least 1/2 of the comments posted in the past 10 days have been spam. its just getting annoying cutting through the crap, and many of my friends have already abandoned myspace for facebook. could hackers/phishers be the demise of myspace?

That's why it is so bad, and they simply don't care, except for making court cases against the offenders, and getting money from it.

I agree, i always help people up. At the last show we all protected this little kid who was tying his shoe in the middle of the pit.

April is the month is the month of MySpace bugs, so maybe they're just coming early?


Thats more of a joke than anything. They are primarily doing it to get rid of the 'month of bugs' trend. I doubt that has anything to do with it, plus that project is not malicious.

MySpace is a pit of security problems. There have been incidents where people have uploaded malformed images/videos/audio/etc that exploit flaws in various different software products, not to mention the flaws that exist in MySpace itself.

They don't take security seriously and probably won't, so keep that in mind when you use MySpace.

Finally. Let's try and send Assrammer over there, maybe he can ban Tom.


God I would love for MySpace to just disappear. I swear my friend is addicted to it, he'll even go on at someone elses house or in the middle of band practice. It's really fucking pathetic and annoying.
Oh Shit!

Hacking as in hacking into something. Cracking as in getting a program to work without actually paying for it. And phishing is when you get someone to give up their user info or whatever through a clever ruse.


EDIT::

THE Hackers?

A/S/L?

Media corruption alert!

Hacking is an art form and it doesn't involve anything malicious. Hacking in its truest form is breaking something down so that you understand how it works and why it works. Hackers in the truest sense of the word do what they do because they want to know more and want greater understanding, they are constantly seeking to better themselves and their understanding.

Crackers break into things (IE assrammer) with malicious intent and harass everyone.

Phishers send out fake emails with legitimate looking web pages designed to nab your authentication credentials (thats one way at least).

delete any codes you didn't put in your profile from your about me section, then change your password. Tom's taking the hackers to court anyway, there's an annoncement about it.
