I have recently become aware of a youtube video made by Banjo (a former member here), and I am somewhat disturbed by its contents. In it are threats against the accounts of myself, Dave, airshocker, bruce, aussiepet, coolbeans, and a number of others. He also claimed to have already successfully hacked a user named silly_pants, whom upon investigation I have learned has been banned. It made me realize that the internet can be a dangerous place when some nutjob with delusions of grandeur becomes obsessed with a person or group of people.

Anyways, how safe do you think online social interaction is? Do you think there are perhaps dangers which are not immediately apparent that we should be aware of? What can be done to address these problems?

You edited that picture to make it look like I said obscene things (which I did not). Also, who are you on TDH?

Hehe Laihendi That is why you don't make enemies on the Internet but, Seriously the guy hacked another user account that is just down right Bull#*!) as the only way to hack someone else's account is to either Hack into that persons Computer or Hack into the Database of Gamespot with is the Database of CBS Interactive. My guess is that he Said he hacked that account but only saying that cause he owns the account and it was banned on the grounds of Ban Dodging. If that is the Case then there is no real reason to be worried whatsoever as it is just Weak threats that don't matter. People say they can Hack people's accounts but, Honestly the only way to hack a account is to Steal the Account Data some how. All I can tell you is that unless you have a HIGH Suspicion that you might get compromised all you can do is Change your Login Details and Remember not to share your password with anyone not even Family nor Friends nor let anyone near the computer you have the account logged into

Adding more Ideas you can do Honestly if you don't know them in real life then you really shouldn't even interact with them on a Chat to Chat ( VOICE ) type way as he could use that to his advantage to get your pass

I thank you for sharing this helpful insight. And nomsayin, the comment you are referring to is an exceptional youtube comment so I am glad that you had the opportunity to read it.

he isn't angry

let me tell you about banjo:

he is a suburban teenaged white kid with internet and free time, who finished fapping to 2d (3d>2d) japanese women about 5 minutes ago and is now bored.

people on this internet are very gullible, and he posted with identical username selection mechanisms, grammar, etc.

OT always thought his various personas were srs bsnss b/c trolls are against the rules and consequently do not exist

one gets banned in a firey trollstorm, mission accomplished - makes a new one

repeat ad infinitum

now one day i started stringing together his alts

he took notice and i am now his faux e-nemesis

so he posted a pic of somebody that isn't me with a similarly accurate name, phone number and location

the only part of this story that makes no sense is that he does this over and over

maybe it's for getting OT all up and arms?

IDK

prob just needs to get laid

All it takes is acquiring an individual's most used ip address. I wouldn't try to get on a hackers bad side or the government for that matter.

Any commoner can be tracked by tracing online activity between websites (youtube, facebook, etc.) thus eventually leading to the true person behind the online profile. Well using fake ip address might help. I'm no computer technician but look how easy it is for NSA to track people. Even Mexican gangs hired hackers to locate their enemies via internet.

Not necessarily. But in this case there is very little danger of that.

Going by the video Banjo is a really bored 14 year old.

 

He's too young to be low on vitamin D.
