    The possibility of hacking.

    Right. So, now it's been established that Pratters has been hacking into people's email accounts and whatnot, I'm actually seriously beginning to worry about my security on this site, and fear that he might (and may have already) attempt to take some of my details. Is it possible to have a load of my information hidden please? I do not want him to end up with my address or anything, him living not exactly a million miles from me etc...

    I might be mistaken but I don't think anyone except the mods can access your email unless you stick it out there.

    I think it's been deemed a non-CW issue, so there won't be much discussion of who did what round here.

    I think what is an important question though is how much of our information is available via CW? I don't think there's much can be accessed by bots, hackers etc unless they are on the mod team but I may be mistaken.

    Woah wtf, never logging in again Seriously though- don't get hyped up over it it's not worth getting scared... If it happens again I guess THEN CW should take action but otherwise...

    Pratters? Wha?

    Has it really been established? We have one person's word against another at this stage.

    There's no point to this thread except to get at Pratters so I'm closing it. As "Voltman" said, there's no proof at all that this has actually happened.

    If further discussion is required on this, email moderators@cricketweb.net
