EDIT: Thanks for all the help, his rating has been updated and solutions unskipped

Okay so this was my solution: https://codeforces.com/contest/1328/submission/74415216

And this is the other guy, whom I do not know at all. agrawalamritanshu82 https://codeforces.com/contest/1328/submission/74481132

Our solutions do match almost exactly the same, however neither do I use Ideone or any platform where my code can be leaked and neither have I given my solution to that person. It seems like a coincidence since the solution was simple that it matched almost exactly. Now I do kind of feel bad for that guy since his solutions got skipped due to this, what can I do in this case?

Since the code is very simple. I believe both of you solve it independently. But maybe your password is too simple so that somebody login your account. Anyway change your password first:>

    I think codeforces sends an email whenever there's a login from a new device. At least I receive those emails.

I think the code was simple that there is small but not zero chance to have 2 code similar to each other

      My solution is not skipped. The other guy, however, got his solutions skipped since it was a rated contest for him I feel bad, so if there is any way to fix this that's why I am asking for advice.

        Actually, there is but not friendly. Write some none-meaning function and put them in fron of main() like this

        inline void JustToAvoidSkippedAnother() { while (0 > 1); }
        inline void JustToAvoidSkippedOther() { while (false > true); } 
        inline void JustToAvoidSkipped() {
            JustToAvoidSkippedAnother();
            JustToAvoidSkippedOther();
            return void(true);
        }
        
        void main()
        {
            JustToAvoidSkipped();
        
            while (input())
            {
                solve();
            }
        
            return 0;
        }

same here, I write all my codes locally I don't use platforms like ideone. This was a simple coincidence, And I'm frankly surprised to see how similar our codes were.

But how did you come to know that HIS SOLUTION GOT SKIPPED. Hope you both are not friends :P

    I think both users receive a notification in such a case.

        They were earlier marked skipped, but now they have been counted for and so is the rating for that contest :)
