Lots of sites changed to more strict security policy last weeks, all of them stated that bunch of accounts hijacking occur daily. U can check any tracker help irc to realize the size of such prob.
The most reason for this hijacking I guess is that the some users use the same password in more than a tracker (or in all their trackers), in fact tracker mods. can access ur password too (so don't use a password like f***ingpay2lechtracker ), so please be ware and change ur passwoeds to more secure ones, time of ilovemary like passwords has gone.
Cautions suggested by FST users:
*Use https to access the site. (If your trackers rules allow using https freely of course).
*Use different nickname, passwords & e-mail for each site.
*Use a password manager like Roboform or Firefox.
*Don't sign up in every tracker you know. Only what tou need.
*Try including numbers inbetween your password field.
(If you know another way to avoid such hijacking please post here and I'll edit this post)
Take care. (If I hijacked any of FST users accounts, don't be worried, I'll just invite myself then return the account to his owner )
