If you see anyone online at Hyperlobby (usually on DarkSkies) it's not me. Someone hacked my password and is using my name. I won't be online again until this is sorted out.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I have enjoyed a few visits to Zekes & Wildcats but have not been online since November 27 so it was definitely not me. A squadmate sent a page message on Hyperlobby but I wasn't online at the time. He thought it was odd because he didn't get a reply. Have changed my name on HL so if you see [OAC]Old_Canuck it's an imposter. Don't know why anyone would want to use my name with my dismal record lol.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hacked is probably a littel overboard of a term. I'd expect "guessed" would be more correct. Also, are you sure he is using your EXACT name? No spaces, substituted lower case for upper case letters or other characters?

Also, I'm pretty sure you can contact HyperLobby and they can IP trace who is using your login, if this is indeed happening, or change your password for you.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hi slipball .. congrats on the kill. It's not easy killing a ghost so that's quite an feat http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

slickstick .. one of my squadies suggested that someone might have picked up the password through a peer to peer connection but we've already ruled that out. You're probably right when you say "guessed." At any rate my password has been changed and I won't be back online until this is sorted out. Will send Jiri an email. Don't want to bother him but he can always file it away if it's a nuisance for him.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Copy that. If you are not 100% sure that your exact login is being used and as your HL handle was [OAC]Old_Canuck, it is entirely possible that a capital "I" was used for the small "l" in your name or an extra space was added to make it look like your name. One way to be sure is if you look in any FBD stats that the false call was flying under.

You'll see two entries for [OAC]Old_Canuck. Your's and the imposter's, but with some difference in the characters. Just throwing a few things at ya, so that you can be 100% sure your password has been compromised.

We've seen this in HL for years. Calls with slightly different characters created to bust someone's chops. Be glad it's not like the OLD days when on Jane's Combat.Net and early HyperLobby, where you could actually have the EXACT same callsign in the lobby at the same time as the real one, by using the HTML script to launch the lobby and inputting any name you wanted.

Now, that created some intense times, indeed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I will never understand gamers.

But then, at my age I don't have to.

Hope you get it sorted OC.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

In that same vein, I will never understand cheaters. Especially, when they've been bagged, yet still pretend like they have honor. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Funny what happens when they think no one is looking. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
