    luckily my paypal goes to a totally different email address.


    but still, I've had that emaill address since 99 and I've been on ebay since 01


    all gone



    I notified yahoo, and they're supposedly "looking into it", but who knows if that will actually get me anywhere..


    anyone know if/how I can hack my email back with Cain & Able?

    was your password "honda" or something else gay as hell?

    and update your paypal one too... even if it is different.

    use l33t passwords.


    I like to use stuff that doesn't mean shit but is easy to remember, like:

    q2o0i9w3

    looks retarded, but type it out. mad easy to remember.

    Paypal and Ebay accounts will accept ascii characters. Nothing known to me is capable of socially engineering this nor of attrition hacking it. Also, key loggers and even keyboard logging HARDWARE is not capable of getting it.

    -> Steve

    Now, get Hondaswap up to that spec and we'll be good :)

    no. entering codes can ALLOW for hacking, which is why they are disabled.
