  • Multiple Users with Same IP/Username

    I recently encounted a user, well five, that had the exact same username, and IP address. I tried merging them, and the error of 'trining to merge users with the same designated username, and source username' came up. I still can't figure out how that happened (the multiple users w/ same name), so any ideas?

    Check the usernames. They almost certainly have hidden ASCII characters.

      forum dude;

      It is no assic problem, you board is being hacked. Please reply to this thread and post any hacks that you have installed. We are triying to figure out how they are hacking the board.

      I am thinking they are doing something similar to this?
