Aaron, you know the topsite script you told me, from Xtreme scripts? I downloaded it and looked around the code... Don't use it aaron.

It sends an email to the "maker" of the script (I know he didn't f**king make it. (S)He's a dumbass) with your email, username, password, server name, database name, etc. Anything you write. Don't use it bro...

Too late, all the info you've typed on it has been sent. EVEN the members who signed up on it - IE: Me. They know my passwords now.

You have a pretty good legal case, Aaron, if you owned a popular topsite. If I were you, I'd send them an email telling them to change their codes, or prepare a defense lawsuit.

Good luck bro

Grand, did it ask you to agree to anything? Also may you send me a copy of the script through MSN please.

I really doubt you'd have a legal leg to stand on, but change all your passwords and tell EVERYONE how lame that person is ssmile.gif

I've known that website for quite some time. It's owned by some lameass DBZ site owner. I know all their scripts are ripped, they even ripped FusionPHP! Look at how dumb they are, they rip the layout, the name, AND DOMAIN!

Their site is fusionphp.org (It's not the genuine Fusion PHP site) It got changed from XtremeScripts.com . They also need better names <_<

Either way, their scripts suck even if they ripped them. They either need to recode everything so it, at least, looks like theirs, or admit they stole it.

And to make matters worse, they are threatening everyone who's downloading their "scripts" that the downloaded scripts cannot be redistributed, edited, or sold. They're "copyrighting" their scripts. What a lie!

Grand, I checked out the site and there is no waiver anywhere whatsoever, so there is no suit. What they may be doing is wrong, but there is nothing anyone can do about it.

Not sure if it helps your case grand, but I'd say adaware would be a good idea. Lucky me I got the full version =P

You know, this site is not copyrighted, so they can do all the stealing and/or hacking they want to.

Hacking has nothing to do with copyrighting

Did they hack and steal the scripts? Probaly not. They probaly downloaded em and got the code. But mind you, what exactly does spyware do? I know tons of people that have great tips and programs to get rid of spyware for free. I know http://www.techtv.com/ has some great information about spyware SOMEWHERE. If not, just post it on their forums and they'll get to it...

This is why I only download ROMS, EMU's, and P2P s*it. Two are out the window though- I only download ROMS now. But besides that fact, what do scripts do anyways?

These scripts are just like the forum script we use. Except whenever you login, it emails the maker of the script your username, password, email, and any other essential data.

No prob. I notice these stuff quite easily. If anyone wants to spam their email stongue.gif (Or hack it) here it is: xtremetopsites@xtremescripts.com

And they email the owner (The email i provided above) these information:

Subject: XT1 - $script_url - $date

CODE
Hostname: $hostname
MySQLUser: $username
MySQLPassword: $password
MySQLDB: $database

AdminUser: $admin_user
AdminPass: $admin_pass

FTP Address: $ftp_add
FTP Username: $ftp_user
FTP Password: $ftp_password

WebmasterEmail: $webmaster_email
WebmasterURL: $webmaster_url

Name of Topsite: $topsite_name

ScriptURL: $script_url

Table: $table
Date: $date


Copyright: $copy

Is Correct Copyright?: $iscorrect\n\n


So basically they know your FTP, mySQL, and other information now. Oh, and that means they can hack you anytime they wish. CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS NOW
