Just saw that this guy / bot "linmangmu" is spamming through the forums. When I tried to immediately change my password it says, wrong password entered, even though it is my actual password. Is this a coincidence ?

It's happened a few times. Really annoying but I'm not really sure there's much that can be done about it. Julien usually cleans it up pretty quickly.

Spammer blasted! (I can easily remove all the posts of a single account in one click)

Nothing hacked... just a bot account spamming each topic up to 100 times then leaving forever.

Where did you try to change the password?

Under: edit account settings. It always tells me that my password is incorrect., after submitting it. But it´s the one I´m logged in.

Had the same experience recently having my password rejected.
Thought it was an issue with my droid phone.

Did not think much of it until i read this thread.
