    recently some ex-members (one of the ex-members being my self) of spymac have managed to gain admin rights over their system. and god it was easy. the fact that a member of their SPYMAC STAFFF gave me admin rights knowing that i was going to abuse it is a joke, obviously even their own staff hate the site!!!

    i know macrumors.com and spymac have had issues in the past. hell when spymac got hacked they were pointing fingers at you lot! until i openly admitted having admin rights.

    knowing spymacs general member stupidity there are claims flying around that i am going to get arrested or sue by spymac for "hacking" their site. what i fail to see is that if a member of spymacs staff gave me admin rights that means that spymac cannot hold me responsible for any forum of "hacking".

    the worse thing is some moron is accusing me of hacking into his bank account, i personally fail to see how hacking spymac is in any way related to some guy losing bank money. and shouldn't spymac be held reasonable for member information being leaked as they do not encrypt their passwords?

    I would probably say, that this isn't a forum in which to boast about these types of exploits.

    i am not boasting, just pointing out how stupid some website can be. i still cannot believe they have still not "trust-e" even thought member accounts have been accessed by others.

    Well you knew that the login wasn't meant to be used by you. Yes yes, someone is stupid for giving you the password, but you knew better than to go in there, knowing full well that the access wasn't yours.

    Can I ask why you would do this to begin with? Its pointless. If you dont like Spymac, dont go there.

    So, they suspected us (so you say), found out it was you, and you are now bragging about it on our forums. I dont know if I like how this makes us look.
