You're looking at it backwards. Kison didn't go "hey, Expedience might be the hacker" and then set out to find evidence of it, he said "hey, this is how the hacker might have acted" and then set out to find evidence (which happened to point to Expedience).

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Very interesting. So did you manage to actually trace the real-life person behind it? I'm really interested in the behind-the-scenes forensics that helped catch them. ooooh cyberrr

Additionally you'd be banned for having a name too similar to ira's. An account called Cherve was banned for being too close to Chevre.
If you walk down the path that you believe is right, you cannot be wrong.

Ok it just happened 3 times in a row in arround 8:53-9:05am est if your an admin that can check logs

I am logged in. I try to make or edit a post

Before my edit or new post goes through it says I need to sign in

I sign at given prompt. I try to make or edit that post

Before my my edit or new post goes through it says I need to sign in

I believe you see the pattern at this point. Is the website logging me out randomly and or not signing me in correctly? Anyone else having this issue? I started noticing it after site breach/server migration that happened recently. Thought I was crazy but given it just happened 3 times in a row I not think I crazy. Any admin with a suggestion on a fix would be great

You'll probably get a more useful response if you make a thread directly in the Help! forum since I highly doubt it is at all in any way related to the security breach.

Did, and there are quite a few unanswered help threads that i notied

Is there a thread that talks about the recent server migration? I thought there was one but could not find and since these things happened at around same time I figured I'd bring it up both places
