    Something weird happened to me yesterday that got me asking myself "was I just hacked?". I have a jailbroken 3.1.2 via Blackra1n. Just Winterboard and 5 icon dock installed.

    I was playing Words With Friends and has just started a new game w/ my friend. In the middle of the 2nd word on the board, my friends user name changed in front of my eyes to a user name I wasnt familar w/. I called him thinking he changed it and he said he didnt.

    I googled the user name and its a user name of a guy Japan who posts on japanese movies sites. Was I just hacked? It hasnt happened since then. Very weird.

    Sounds like a glitch on that particular games part.

    Nothing else has been changed on your phone has it? If not, I would say it was just a glitch, but keep and eye on it. Good luck!

    Is this a game played with 2 iphones via Internet link ?

    If so, I can see the remote chance of that happening via software glitch as others have said.

    What does a Nick change have to do with hacking.

    Server Issue

    Just looked on the developers site, they've had an issue with thier servers.

    I invited a friend before and another name showed up in the game.

    They never responded, I deleted and re-installed the app and things are back to normal.

    Same here. It just started happening. My user name changed without my consent and I don't know why. I also can't change it back. Even after uninstalling and reinstalling.. Have you found an answer???

    What kind of answer are you expecting?

    1. You revived a ten year old thread.
    2. The ten year old thread you revived is in the Apple iPhone jailbreak section of an Apple-centric website named MacRumors.

    You have a Moto Z Force. A Moto Z Force is not an Apple iPhone. It is not an Apple iPad. It's not an Apple iPod, nor it is an Apple Macintosh computer.

    Do you see the problem here so far?

    So, again I ask you. What kind of answer are you expecting from a site that does not focus on anything other than Apple devices.

    You registered here, so it can't be said that you were unaware of the fact that this is an Apple-centric website.

    What help could us Apple users possibly be expected to give you?
