Nah, it's unlikely... to get passwords, I understand you need higher privileges than mods get...

I don't think even Admin's have access to passwords...or do they?

If they don't directly, they can reset a password, anyway...

Since the passwords are stored on the UBB server, and are probably in plain-text like the rest of the profile data, it's perfectly feasible for an admin who also has FTP access to do things manually...

What the hell? Does this have to do with all that "someone stole Commander Shockwaeve's password" problem or not?

It would have been at the top of the page, since I'd just responded to it... the aim of our troll may have been to clear the forum one post at a time...

If you haven't already Skywarp, why don't you temporarily ban or remove the hijacked account(s) mod powers until things can be changed(Passwords and such)?
