I see that all of Bratwurste/2K20GB4's posts have been replaced by the "trollface" image.

Since I don't imagine he took the time to edit all 3000+ posts manually, I have to assume this wasn't his doing.

Is this an account security / forum security issue? Is this actually his doing? What's the story?

I know his last post on the UE3 netcode was locked (for no legitimate reason -- posting informed info on how the UE3 engine processes hits is *completely* relevant to AAPG and I'm glad to see that moderator's decision was reversed).

Is this related to that?

must have taken him literally hours to go through and edit all 3.2k+ of his posts.

its some kind of statement he is making i guess but theres gotta be a better and far much easier way to relay the message than going through all that trouble..

Yeah. I at first thought it was an overreaction to his post getting locked, but ALL 3000+ getting changed? That's what led me to wonder whether it was done by somebody that could access the site DB in some way. If he came up with a way to change all of his posts in an automated way, my hat's off to him.

It started at about 8pm EST last night and took about 10 hours to complete.....sounds like someone was pretty dedicated.

Ive already checked the logs and there was no access to the back end system from anywhere where there shouldn't have been.

That's about 12 seconds per post, which doesn't sound unreasonable for manually editing in a link to each.

I have no words.

... also, 3% of *all* posts on the site are now trollface.

Sounds good, glad to hear it. Thanks for checking.
