|To clear things up|
Posted 08 Jul 2011 16:24
I am Robdeprop, and as some of you may know, I am known as bad here. That is the reason why I am writing this blog, to clear thing up. I am going to describe what happened, what I did do, and what I didn't do. I hope that after this, we can finally put an end to this.
It all started when a security hole was found in DSiPaint (XSS hole). At first I kinda thought it was funny and started posting funny links on post such as links that would say "TROLOLOLOLOL" if you clicked on them. But then I saw other people starting to use it, too... And I became a little bit worried. DSiPaint was/ is my favourite website, and the security hole could also be used for hacking.
So I went into one of the chatrooms, and told one of the moderators (I am not going to say names) about the hack, and asked him/ her if he/ she could inform HullBreach. He/ She asked for proof, so I used the hack to get in somebody's account. But then I got banned and perma'd. I don't know if the same mod did it, but never mind.
I was kind of sad that my account got perma'd, but I started searching for ways to get in contact with HullBreach, so I could tell him the hack (and maybe let him also restore my Robdeprop account)
I created another account and used the hack on a mods account, and mailed HullBreach through it. It didn't help though. I didn't get a reply.
Meanwhile, I lost controll of the mods account, and got perma'd again.
So I created a new account, and this time, I tried the helpdesk. I reported the security hole and possible hack there. I got a reply saying that it was fixed now, so I checked it. It was indeed fixed, but really easy to get around that, so the security hole was still not fixed. So I submitted a new question saying that the hack was still possible, but that one didn't really have success
Meanwhile, moderators found out that that account was mine, and perma'd me again.
I was kinda out of good ideas about how to let HullBreach know... Then I started to imitate like DSiPaint was really getting hacked (without doing real damage), causing chaos so that HullBreach would mention it.
The chaos part of this plan worked, but it still didn't reach HullBreach.
I decided to give it one more try. My new tactic was to tell this whole story to a moderator in the hope that he/ she would believe me, and mail HullBreach.
This actually worked out. I became friends with a mod (still not mentioning names), and he/ she helped me contacting HullBreach. HullBreah hasn't responded though.
So I gave up. I realized that in all this time nobody had hacked DSiPaint, so I thought that DSiPaint would be okay. I left DSiPaint for a few weeks in the hope that they would forget about all the chaos, and returned.
Most people have, some don't, however. To these people I would like to say sorry. I maybe could have better just have done nothing. Please forgive me. I didn't intend bad things. Please, please give me a second chance. DSiPaint is my favourite website. It inspired me to learn programming and create my own websites (I am not naming them).
