    Someone should tell MTV that it isn't considered "hacking" if you left your PC unattended while you were still logged in to Facebook. :rolleyes:

    Damn, I must be really 1337, then. I changed my sisters status to gay. She left herself logged in.

    Steve, you seriously need to stop thinking that MTV is smart. They make Jersey Shore. Anything they say can't really be that smart, can it?

    most of these idiots are pretty much giving away their passwords. I would go to my mom's and see over 2 dozen passwords in the firefox password manager from the various people using that computer.

    I know how much everyone here loves IT:Car analogies, so would you leave your car unattended with doors unlocked, windows rolled down, and keys on the hood? No? Don't leave your f'ing accts logged in then.

    I never did understand why anyone would stay logged in or have FF remember passwords on a PC that isn't theirs exclusively.
    Stupid people doing stupid shit, as they always do, then blame someone else for it.

    People are lazy. Password is probably more of a hassle to them than a security feature.

    Well fortunately I only come here.

    I figure as long as [H] never gets hacked then I should be safe.

    Truth.

    Stupid people... are stupid? Count on MTV to make every victim feel as if they've been violated on a federal level; and make every teenage prankster think they're Anon.

    If this is hacking, then walking into a house is break and enter. :D
