To be honest, I wouldn't call it hacking, more like guessing answers to his security questions based on his information.

YouTube- WARNING: DSP's Windows Live Account Hacked, everything on hold

Its a shame because hes a pretty cool guy and provides some funny gameplay commentary.

I always thought it a good idea to make up nonsense answers even to your "secret" question. Example: What was your first car? Ans: Batmobile

Meh, I couldn't care less. Of the videos I have watched he seems to be a very big sore loser and he's always yelling and screaming.

But it still sucks though.

Guessing someone's secret question isn't hacking.
Phishing someone's details isn't hacking.
Someone watching you type your details into a site over your shoulder isn't hacking.
Getting your details stolen via a keylogger isn't hacking either.

People need to learn the difference between being stupid enough to give out their info and being hacked.

The primary problem with that is when you forget the nonsense answer.
I personally like it where you can type up your own question, that way I can leave a question like "What is password #3, variant 4?", which a person would have a hard time guessing even if they knew my personal information.

I have never used an anti-virus on my computer. Also I've never been hacked [phished] whatever in 14 years. I think it just boils down to not going to sketchy sites and using super passwords. s9383g1t. ect. see how it kinds rhymes easy to remember. Still I feel for the guy.

Dude, you do realise how infested your computer will be?
You can pick stuff up even from good sites. Hell, I managed to pick up sdra64.exe on here before, (not just me, I made a thread in feedback and a couple of folk said they did too).

Man, I would refuse to even put a flash drive in your computer.

Shame... he seems rather cool about what happened, though you can see he is clearly upset. Poor sod... though asking for donations is perhaps one step too far in terms of sympathy.

Ah well, let's hope karma kicks the person who did it square in the nuts!

While it isn't technically hacking, it's still considered stealing. Being phished, watching someone type your details, and getting keylogged do count as stealing someone's info. As for someone guessing, that's just by luck...and isn't hacking or stealing (though the act of using that account for their own profit is).

True hacking is changing an entire site around to fit said hacker's desires, ruining financial plans through complicated entrypoints into a system and getting out scottfree, disabling a network through use of technological manuevers...yeah, that's hacking. Viruses aren't hacking, they just kill your computer...or grab information and return it to the creator. Spyware isn't either. And I'm out of here ;>_> the landlord's around...and I gotta pay..

I guess people who have the actual working Director's account (before the change back years ago) love to abuse their "over 10 minute" privledges...really, the entire thing could have been only about 5 minutes (less than that still...). I find it difficult to watch anybody talk for more than 10 minutes straight about something, even Zero9teen =/

And I use my computer for taxes, bank stuff..lots, I am sure if I had something one of my MMO accounts thru the years would have got jacked.

Edit: Installed some virus thing updated it and full scan after 3 years owning this computer..and nothing.

Me thinks some people should look into Firefox with a no-script add-on.

Indeed. Forums sites aren't impossible for someone to hack (or whatever) and steal a lot of information from people. I've been on a gaming forum where that happened recently and I know it's happened before to a well known forum site of a game I used to play.

Even "good" sites can give you a virus.

I have three cards on mine, and if someone did take my account and charge something I'd get all my money back. I do need to take away my old credit card from it though.

Oh man do you think thats the only reason why he rambled on for 14 minuets? If thats the case then I feel sick.

I find it amusing that there was a 14 minute ramble rather than just saying hey look my account got stolen. Watch out blah, that could be covered in a minute or two.

Now you can watch the follow up 4 minutes of him going on none stop about it.

YouTube- VICTOLY! Xbox Live/Windows Live/Hotmail account restored

I think the moral of the story is to not attach any cards, use pre-paid card and use a secondary email account. Either way this doesn't justify 18 minutes of video just to say I lost my account, oh wait I got it back.

At least he told his "fans" I guess. At least Microsoft correct this sort of thing swiftly.

Wait a second, in his first video it says he needs donations because he wasn't planning on his money getting stolen and he needs to pay bills. Now on the second video he said all the donated money was going to the hobby. Congratulations to the people that donated, you just paid for Phil to get some new games and equipment!!!

Maybe his account didn't get hacked and this was all a donation scam.

To be fair to him he's actually a pretty good ST and HD Remix player, I think I remember reading on Shoryuken.com that he has won some tournaments in the past.

He is painfully average at SF4 though, and has an unwarranted ego to go with it. He bitches about non-existent lag when he messes up and insults pretty much everyone he records even when they win by a considerable margin. He's a complete tool, and I have no idea how people can stand to watch him with the sound on let alone subscribe to the guy or send him donations.

Because he is an Arsehole. Plain and simple. If he ever gets beat he blames the game and starts calling the players scrubs/noobs/low lifes etc. etc. not once in his videos have i ever heard him say "That player pretty was good" or "Really good game man" No its always "Fucking scrub" or "Omg fuck you kid get a lifee" Hes a very very sore loser which makes him an arsehole in my book.

Well most certainly not the entire thing. Aside from the ramble, it's kind of a manipulation trick so people might be willing more to donate (if they listened to the whole thing). You see...once you steal 14 minutes of somebody's life that is feeling generous and you've become completely involved in the subject, you may feel more inclined to help the "poor fellow" rather than some guy with a 2 minute video, explaining his problem and then wanting money for it. Kind of a clever bastard, but will it work...that's the question.

I always thought it a good idea to make up nonsense answers even to your "secret" question. Example: What was your first car? Ans: Batmobile

That's not really all that nonsensical. The best way to create a secret question is to give an answer that has absoutely nothing to do with the question at hand. "What was your first pet?" Answer: Tacos.

Just don't fucking forget what your response was. Ha.

07-12-2010, 03:51 AM
Well, knowing he got his account back so quickly makes my suspicions that this was faked even stronger. I mean, first of all a fourteen minute video about being hacked and practically urging for donations? Anyone who contributed deserved to be ripped off in my opinion haha. I'm a huge fan of Street Fighter, so I'm VERY happy I didn't like SFIV that much so I don't have to deal with him. So, that's at least one asshat less I need to worry about it appears...

Either way, if he honestly got hacked, glad he got his shit back, but I really think it's a scam and I hope someone gets pissed off enough at him to do something...like hack his account :D

I had no idea who this guy was so I decided to watch a couple of his videos. What an annoying prick! He actually wants people to donate to his stolen account to repay ms points? I also noticed he had a vid where he reads messages from his "fans". Seriously, if anyone was gonna donate money to me, I would be a little more grateful and less of a prick.

I also agree with the scam thing. I have never had an xbox account "hacked" but it does seem strange he recovered it so quickly. Seems like a sad way to get a quick buck from a few "fans".

Wow, when I was browsing these forums and seen this thread and watched some of his videos I was thinking "wow that really sucks that someone jacked his xbox account" after seeing how that guy acts, and how he is towards his "fans" now I don't feel bad at all for that loser.

Can definitely see why he would be targeted for an attack and when he acts like a total douche towards his fans, I seriously would hope that not a single person would give someone like that a penny or let alone "subscribe" or give any attention to his youtube vids. He definitely comes across as an immature prick.
