Originally thought you meant haxX0r account that way, that it would enable you change account details etc :-\.

I wasn't sure if you could or not, it was hard to say when I was playing around with my own account.  :-\

If Photobucket users make sure their accounts are set to Private, if they aren't already.

Any website that either doesn't encrypt passwords, or secures the strings, are hackable. Limiting the query for retrieving the user account details, on login, is important. As only one account should be retrieved. As it could be possible to dump the Db, if either the username or password string aren't secured (by using a MySql type command).

The check form was submitted, is to check the details were entered through the form and not the address bar.

Code: [Select]
if(isset(submit))
{

// form submitted

}

Encryption is important, with the expectation of double hashing. As if the strings are collided, it might be possible to remove both layers of encryption (if that's the right way of putting it).

Thou the user has an important part to play. As passwords with characters (*[]() etc) should be used, so the possibility of causing a collision is smaller. That with exotic forms of encryption, altering the password string with simple things like reversing the string, changing it to binary, adding characters to it and salting it, add a further layer of protection.

Thou probably the most overlooked part is the users email address, if you gain access to that, you gain access to what ever accounts that email was used to register with.

Photobucket is not the most secure site in the world.

User's should be aware that if you just close down the window without logging out, it is very easy for any one to view your account. So always log out.
I noticed that too and I always log out and close tab after I quit there.

I set my account immediately private I was join there.
i'm waiting for someone to start an antisocial networking site.

I have tried to get into imageshack, no joy, but that's good.  ;D

I like PB, but only use it for the Fora Games.

Well, anything that gets reported to them as being risque is removed (just like most image hosting sites).  Also, a lot of us tend to delete off the images after their usefulness has expired.  I mean, it does not good to keep an image from page 2 of the "Name that Movie" thread when we're on page 94.

Yeah that would just bump up the bill and waste that valuable 30kb of the 500mb allowance..  Keep that up for the next 17 years and one might just go over the limit ::)
