What to do if your MySpace account has been hacked

Several months ago I wrote a post about how to hack a MySpace account. About half of the comments left on that post where from people who have had their MySpace profiles hacked and would like to know how to recover it. This post is for all of you who want to reclaim their stolen profiles. :)

The first thing you want to try is forgot password feature (this is the fastest option). If your compromised account hasn’t had the email address changed, then MySpace will email you the current password and you can use that to login and change your password. Don’t change it back to your old password or you’ll just lose your account again.

If the email address for the account has been changed, then you need to send a salute to MySpace to prove you are who you say you are. A salute is a photo you take of yourself that is you holding a handwritten sign with your MySpace profile address on it, such as this one:

MySpace salute

Don’t post your salute in a public place. Many people post salutes on other people’s profiles and this leaves a possible exploit. The above photo is via BoingBoing, which points out that in this modern age, it’s not hard to fake a salute using Photoshop, especially if you’ve already posted one somewhere else.

people want revenge - not authenticity.

i want to find the fuckers that got in perform hate crime.

i want to become a statistic.

——————————————–

well, if i ever did get hacked i would feel that i deserve it since i have hacked myspace accounts in the past (not proud… but kinda). then i would cancel my account and start another account under then false name “boy george”.

isn’t that how boy george got famous?

for those only wanting to hack into their significant other’s MySpace merely to see if they’re cheating. Why don’t you try http://www.spectorsoft.com ? You’ll find out EVERYTHING they’re up to online and not just on MySpace ;)

From HelpfulDude on May 30th, 2007 at 12:23 pm

Hey guys be careful with those sites claiming they can hack email accounts and give you passwords. They are nothing more than scammers. Don’t fall for that.

From Amaul Farouuk on June 3rd, 2007 at 12:40 am

my myspace account has gotten hacked !! how do i get it back??

From jasmine on June 5th, 2007 at 6:10 pm

Jasmine, have you tried the forgot password feature? If so, try sending a photo of yourself holding a piece paper with your MySpace address on it and send a link to the photo to MySpace. You can get a link from uploading your photo to a place like PhotoBucket.

Good luck!

From Justin on June 6th, 2007 at 7:47 am

hey guys. i’m planning on one day hacking into the pentagon’s private website and their administrators’ profiles but i have no hacking skills or experience yet. i thought it would be a good idea to start practicing on myspace and hotmail profiles. i just need to find the passwords to the profiles and that would work. any help will help. haha =) thanks my email is will_seitz@hotmail.com

From dani on July 20th, 2007 at 6:48 am

If you need to hack an SO’s myspace to see if they are cheating on you, then one of you should not be in the relationship at all anyway.. BREAK UP!!!! Either they are cheating, or you are paranoid, either way, it will not work out..

From XXXenexxxx on July 29th, 2007 at 11:22 am

ppl myspace ruins relationships
stop dating over myspace and go to a club

From Alison on August 20th, 2007 at 10:43 pm

My Myspace account was apparently hacked, and now I can’t get back into it. I’ve tried the “forgot password” function, which doesn’t even recognize that my e-mail address has an account.

I then sent five different e-mails and a stupid “salute” to the myspace help people, who have completely failed to respond. How long does it take to get these bozos to respond!?

MYSPACE STINKS. I for one believe that Myspace is opening itself up to some serious liability for negligence. Next time, I am trying Facebook.

From Joe on August 31st, 2007 at 8:31 am

^ That happened to me to. I try entering my e-mail in the forgot password but it says there is no such e-mail address in the system. I highly doubt that anyone hacked into my e-mail account in order to change the e-mail registered for my myspace, though, so I am unsure as to what happened. My profile hasn’t been deleted either.

Two wrongs never make a right. When someone invades your privacy, even being Myspace, it’s wrong. But obviously they don’t care. Don’t stoop to their level of stupidity. They’re lashing out for something. We’ll never know what it is.

You guys are ghey. If you think your partner is cheating on you then you either have serious paranoia or THEY ARE.
