RAWK Hacked..?
« on: April 28, 2020, 07:15:14 pm »
Getting notifications about a slew of trackers that have suddenly appeared on RAWK

Google Analytics

Skim Links


You also have one more which is a bit more background and I only saw it appear (Then vanish) once..

It's either 'The Ghost of Effes Past' or 'Revenge Of The OldCold'..........
None of this really matters in the end. None of it. Everything is utterly pointless. Even football. Nothing whatsoever really matters.

Skim links has been on a long while I think, believe it adds affiliate links where it can so the site can earn a little coin.

Craig is right on skimlinks and google analytics is as it says, nothing dodgy there. There's no other requests or trackers, I think maybe you need to look a little closer to home if you're getting something else ;D

Yep the skim links one appears on almost every forum, it can be irritating when reading a post next thing you have a random word(s) being highlighted for shopping links by skim links, ad blockers solve this issue.

I very rarely see it on here and don't use any ad blockers.

Hi just thought I'd let you know my password was changed without my knowledge within last 24hrs
Have we had a data breech if so what has been accessed ?

When do you think it was changed and when did you (presumably) change it back?

Hi I logged in around midnight Thursday/Friday untill well into early hours and when I tried logging in just before 2am this morning I kept getting 'incorrect password'. I tried about 10 times before clicking on 'forgot password' which sent an email to an old e-mail address which I then used to change password.
My username was 100% correct and I'm 99.999%  sure I was using the correct password .

Google tells me I'm using an Orbis OS  based on a FreeBSD 9 (which is all greek to me )

However thinking back, in the past when using this browser on some websites like Inland Revenue for example the characters displayed dont correspond with what's been typed   :o ???

Indeed it is and according to one of my unread e-mails I bought it 1/12/ 2013 which makes it nearly 9 yo and a dinosaur when it comes to tech.

I think I've solved the problem though one of my controllers has a sticky square button...It might just of been deleting some of my password as I clicked login...Yes I'm an idiot, sorry for any inconvenience  :-[

In other bad new's I've missed loads of parcel delivery from DHL and missed out on a £37,000 payment to my bank account, because I didnt get to click on a link...Really do need to check my e-mails more often.

Yeah typing with ten fingers is so overated.
Back when I first got a PS3 I clicked on browser with x button it brought me to the Playstation homesreen , top right corner was a search bar I typed ' LFC blog ' then clicked search...No results found. I then typed 'wikipedia' again no results found. I thought thats a load of shite.
About a year later I went back on the Playstation homesreen and accidentally hit the triangle button. Up popped the google search bar... ;D

Are you using it to post on rawk? That'd drive me insane, hate typing on a phone and that's got a keyboard-ish.

Iíve used nothing but a phone to post on RAWK for about 7 years now.

And that is why I barely make a list that doesnít contain at least one typo. :D

Yeah I always use it on here it's very ergonomic though, no RSI causing arthritis in hands, no eyestrain from squinting at tiny text and screens, which f*cks your eyesight up... All of which leads to stress.
Although there is no spellcheck and a limited word suggestion, which suggests the last spelling mistake you made  :)

I do have a laptop though which I only use for serious stuff...It can even make my writing appear like I've had a edukation in Ingurlish grammar... With just a few clicks.

So you have fat fingers aswell .
