You all do know it's pretty easy to play in different ways across different accounts to hide that you're the same person, right?

But why
If you walk down the path that you believe is right, you cannot be wrong.

I am presuming he did not self-report.

My favourite part

I'm sad that we'll never know how this worked to stop it being worked around in future but this is the best way to catch a hacker I've ever seen.

Expedience seemed level headed and intelligent. Ira seemed like a VI newb with no intention of improving.
I'd like to start a mafiascum pool league on pogo. See this thread for details:
http://forum.mafiascum.net/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=70195

If you are interested, please post in the thread. Won't start the league unless I see interest.

I got the opposite impression, honestly.

Expedience seemed pretty cool, but ira seemed like a jerk.

It makes sense though cause in two different games Ira/Experience both had the same reason for scum reading me and it's a reason I've never been called out on before but it was accurate.

I mean, why would we give away how we caught someone? Just makes it less likely to happen next time.

Funnily enough this email brought me back having not been around for a while - mainly because I honestly didn't remember what my password here was so wasn't sure how significantly I would be affected.

Turns out not very. Unless they want my old Club Penguin account, too.

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).

In post 70, Kison wrote:Update: The person responsible for this has been identified and removed from the site. See here.

As mith mentioned earlier, the person responsible was able to gain unauthorized access to an administrator's account. In the process, they left a post indicating how they had done so. We keep thorough logs of site activity, and by making some educated guesses about what the guilty party was doing prior to the attack, we were able to identify one individual whose activity indicated guilt beyond reasonable doubt.

Since we know they downloaded data from the site, our primary goal was to do everything possible to ensure it would be erased. Unfortunately, none of the information on their account identified who they were outside of this site. The past week has been spent tracking down that information relentlessly with great success. I may write more about that another time, but I'd like to thank chamber for being amazing as always and MrBuddyLee for helping with some quality scumhunting(though he was saying he was sure it was Glork all along) and listening to me ramble.

The guilty individual and I spoke and they were adamant that the stolen data has been deleted. We are looking into pursuing legal action to ensure that does in fact happen.

Lastly, we're taking measures to prevent this from occurring again. The method through which the data was downloaded is a feature of phpBB, the software running this message board. It has since been removed. All administators' passwords have been changed, and we will be looking into additional security for access to restricted areas of the site.

Thanks for reading,
Kison

Thanks for all your hard work, all. <3
