Yes, I was hacked two times. Many years ago. I had a formactif that was hacked by a group calling themselves Agents. I have no idea how they did. They did it in a deterministic way. I had one agent on an instant messaging app after he claimed the hack and he confirmed he can do it to my new forum actif. He did it again. I clicked no links, downloaded no file what so ever. Maybe he had knowledge of a security flaw in forum actif.

The first time I got hacked. Also no idea why. Probably knowledge of a serious security flaw in the hosting company which was a simple 15MB hosting plan provided by ny ISP. All I did was sharing my site in public chatroom. The hacker introduced me to computer security and helped me a lot. I owe most of my security knowledge to this particular hacker. They also wrote security tutorials and exploit that I read after. It helped me become better at security.

The one that hacked my site did it to tech lessons. The one that hacked my forum did it because he thought I was a leach. The forum was to share knowledge which I translated from Arabic to French. But since I was 15 and made tremendous amount of mistakes, some did not appreciate it.

Many years ago after my first Linux distro installation ever I was spreading it to an IRC channel like ‘hey, I’m on Linux now, nobody can hack me’. Few minutes later someone replied me: ‘check your root directory content’ I found a new text file ‘hacked’, opened it: ‘had been so easy’

I believe a runescape account I had was hacked a while ago. I logged in after a while and it was permabanned for botting with no chance for appeal. But I never used bots and I hadn’t used the account for a while. I think someone hacked it and used bots on it which got it banned.

My ea account. Thankfully was able to go in and fix it before my account was taken from me.
