DioHERO's blog

By DioHERO, history, 4 months ago, In English

So my account is hacked by someone and I can't do anything. The email has been changed to some random email and the password is also changed, ao I can't raise a forgot password request. I have been logged out of my pc and currently I am writing this blog through my phone, but I don't know how much time I have left. MikeMirzayanov please help.

Okay, but what do you expect Mike Mirzayanov to do? If you need my advice then delete passwords in password manager, if you need your codeforces account connect your account with facebook and change the code.

If you have been logged out of your account, how do you still have access to it through your phone, even though you mention that the password and email have been changed?

    I guess the session lasts for a month for each device from the time of login. (This is the assumption I'm making because codeforces has this "Remember for a month" check box each time you login). So he might have logged in on his phone a little later than on his PC and hence has some access time left.

Can't you change your email from here?
and then recover your password?

      Make new alt id, and decrease rating of this id

And how is anyone supposed to know who is the real owner of this ID
Is hacker writing this blog or the real owner writing from phone as mentioned.
Now this question leads us to bring a change in Codeforces.
Stop changing of email id after registering as this will help retrieval of account to the real owner only.
Or is there some smarter way to know the real owner of any ID ?.

    I think the admin can check whether the IP address has changed from the usual one.If it didn't change,perhaps that's only a joke or people who know him did,if not,just do the decision depend on his phones's IP address. Forgive my poor English:)

      I think it's not a good idea to figure out real owner from only IP address.
      Let's suppose someone borrowed a laptop from his/her friend use it for now meanwhile he/she is still logged from his/her regular system.
      And someone hacks the account then it is hard to figure out which IP address is hackers IP unless we tell Mike with all real owner logged in system's IP address (which is very complex method for retrieval).
      And this is just a normal situation it may be worse sometimes so I guess not changing Mail id or adding some kind of 2 factor authentication while changing mail and password must be implemented.

    The person who changed the email id logged in from an ukraine ip and changed my password first, then my email address. Obviously I am the owner who is using indian ip. But anyways, I think mike should just revert the email as the new email doesn't even exist. I can't email to it.

      How do you know this? Does Codeforces show ip addresses of recent logins somewhere in its UI? If I want to check this information for my account, what would I need to do?

    DioHERO did remember me for a month option while logging in before account has been hacked and maybe hacker is not intelligent enough.

MikeMirzayanov please look into it. I know the real owner of this account personally. He will have to start everything from scratch if you won't help which is demotivating.

    he cannot do it because his password has been changed by the hacker and he doesn't know what it is.
