    So Im getting quite confused about stuff that has been going on.

    My friends at the NSA have gotten me some information surrounding this entire debacle.

    To start off with, we have had some proof that mrdie and James used the same ip to log in. Same with 3 other accounts. As shown down here.


    There were some inquiries about why this is and I've gotten different stories from differnt people.

    1. Allegedly Catface told some people James used the same proxy as mr die by completely accident
    2. I also was told James used mrdie his pc via teamviewer of some sorts to log in to do work because his pc broke
    3. James was ordered by catface to check on the mails of mrdie as posted in the shoutbox


    This is quite contradictory and a bit weird because:
    1. The stories dont match up at all
    2. Why does the same ip show when u just log in as a user? It doesn't makes no sense at all. Unless he used teamviewr to log in as what ever. But this entire explanation makes no sense
    3. Why would james need to check mrdie his mails, catface can do it himself?

    Can someone clear this up Im confuzzled

    Mrdie isn't person..It's a position within the Empires community that gets handed down from person to person.
    It allows us all to vent that little bit of crazy we keep bottled up.

    1. I fail to spot any contradiction.
    2. This doesn't even make sense.
    3. I might be the admin, but I'm not the only one?

    I would like to know how exactly did James log into MrDie account.
    Passwords should be encrypted, and I dont think XenForo provides such feature to use other people accounts and read their PMs as default.

    As far as I know, this shouldnt be possible in a CMS forum system, because of security issues and privacy.
    Unless some custom plugin used? Or manual tinkering with database, or something..
    Most of that wouldnt even require him to login as him.
    Or not?

    He has root access. You can't hide anything from a admin with root.
    Say you lost your password. Having an admin with root able to access any account would be the only way to recover an account.

    I don't see why it should be impossible to login to another account on your forum. There isn't some kind of magical encryption going on with your account. Your password is just used to authenticate you and that's it. Passwords are hashed not encrypted.

    Dodging the actual problem here once again

    1. How do those 3 stories match up?
    2. If it doesnt make sense its cause you guys didnt sync your alibies you told other people
    3. James got ordered to check on mrdie his account, this doesnt sync up with the fact that his fucking ip shows up for mrdie and him, UNLESSSSSS SUPER COINCIDENTALLY JAMES USES THE SAME PROXY AND USED THAT PROXY TO LOG IN WITH MR DIE HIS PASSWORD ON HIS OWN ACCOUNT -> this is competely absurd.

    guys Im not debating the fact that someone can log into someone else his account,
    im debating the fact here that their stories dont fucking line up and that james somehow logged in to mrdie his account on the same ip ( its not about the log in, its about the same ip )

    Recover is different than use.
    This isnt custom built forums, its a commercial forum system.

    Iam not saying its not possible. I just know its rather protected by default in such systems.

    You said he said he used teamviewer.
    Basically that would mean James had remote access of Mrdie's PC.
    So anything James did would come from Mrdie's PC.
    James logging into his account from Mrdie's PC would make Jame's IP = Mrdie's IP

    I don't see why it makes a difference. Commercial software or not, it's always possible to login to an account as someone else. In any case it's more than possible to go into the SQL DB and change the password hash there. I don't see why such forum software would want to protect itself from the system admin. I mean its only a forum.

    Probably not the best idea...Maybe he did it by accident.. Or maybe he needed to test something.
    I just hope he didn't save his PW to Mrdie's browser....That would be funny..And scary.
    Mrdie with Root admin.

    Doesnt this enforce the idea that james is friends with mrdie?
    Why else would you let a random stranger use teamviewer on your pc?
