One security breach leads to another?

So in an attempt to tighten-up security (from my personal observations only) in making everyone reset their passwords, it looks like VS may have left the jail doors open for anyone to escape?

I'm banned on the "other" forum. You know, the one where everyone wears leather chaps and studded harnesses.

So earlier, I got an email telling me to change my password here...... and another one for over there too?

So I click the link, enter my new / temp password over there, change my password, log out, log back-in..... and now I'm un-banned?* If everyone in our pink room has just been let out, this should make for an interesting next while out here

Looking forward to hearing from boredashello, frankdatank, the incredible JF and so many others. This should keep you mods / admins smashing the ban button for a while.




*The only other possibility I can think of is maybe @TomjonesNOTthesinger un-banned me over there? But I'm pretty sure he would have told me, were that the case.

Re: One security breach leads to another?

It does appear some previously banned members have been re-activated. We will see what happens if they decide to return.

Re: One security breach leads to another?

Sorry, you have friends in high places. Till you, I had never seen anyone brought back from a perma-ban. Heck, I might not get invited to the next GDC camping trip if I ban you. I'm wondering if a previously banned member came back, if the user name would be pink which I imagine it would be. It will be like shooting fish in a barrel.

One would think, but I am seeing their names in black...

Not quite sure what happened.

Wow! So by trying to fix an issue that likely wasn't an issue if members just changed their password, the inmates have been given the keys to the kingdom. Is VS a government entity? This is as botched as anything the government touches.

Nope, I was for-real banned on the ass-hat forum. As reported above, I'm now a member in good standing again.

I work in software so this is 'a day in the life' for me. It's just fun to be able to watch it from afar for once.

You have to admit, if any of the hardcore assholes chime back in, it WILL most definitely be good for a lot of giggles.

Re: One security breach leads to another?

It will be interesting to see a parade of douche nozzles coming back from the dead. I was shocked how many forums that I go on were VS properties. Factory Five, Lotus Talk, SuperMoto Junkie, GSXR.com. I used my password generator for the first time.

Yep...this little security "glitch" is just a catalytic scrape goat for VS to tell us they have sold/given our info over to marketers/gov.

DO NOT BAN ME!
