    When I first arrived today I found that I was logged into another users account. The user in question was SpikeyBryan.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showuser=117916

    Possibly he is a recently banned member spoofing my IP? If so that means someone is doing things they shouldn't on GBAtemp. If not, maybe this is another forum bug. Either way I thought I might bring this to your attention.

    And the funny thing is I was no longer planning to post this forum. Just keeping the account to search and contact other members.

    I believe the Temp has security problems. I guess it was wise of me to hasten my exit.

    JohnDrake, you have a link in your avatar to http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/cu...mages/welsh.jpg which is presenting a popup to all who view this thread requesting login details.

    To me this looks like a typical forum phishing attempt and you should be banned until this is resolved.


    Edit: No longer being prompted for user/pass and the avatar picture is displaying once again. It's possible you got SpikeyBryan's log in details in this fashion though.

    or you're trying to cover up the fact you got banned on another account so they dont see your the same person via IP and ban this account too?

    The forum logs session by cookies not IP

    Assuming that he didn't have any security on his computer, it's be easily accessible via a hijacking malware, or phyiscal contact.
