I got hacked - I work for Oracle

I am a Communications Industry Solution Specialist working for Oracle with a in Ph.D Information Science and Technology from Syracuse University.

And I got hacked.

Let me preface this by saying I do not use an authenticator, but I shouldn't need to.

I have a randomly generated password that is 17 characters long, that cannot be bruteforced. I run all the games I play in an isolated VMWare environment on my standalone "Gaming" computer which does not even even have an internet browser installed. Each game I play has its own specialized password and every week I generate a new password for each game account.

On top of that, in this extremely controlled environment I have (which I use for my purposes of my job when I remain at home), my network is controlled by a 2975 Cisco Catalyst Series Layer 2 switch. Every port except the one's needed for the specific game are opened and closed at launch time of that respected game. For example Diablo III will open up ports 6112-6119 when I launch the game. All other requests of any nature on any port or attempted on any port are logged and analyzed. Naturally, no intrusions have been detected. I might as well mention for my weekly password changes I spin off an RHEL EC2 instance on AWS and make all my changes with CURL requests that are encrypted with a 128bit RC4 cypher.

The only way I could possibly ever get hacked is if your servers have a vulnerability. Please don't tell me I need an authenticator.
I'm not going to justify your post with anything other than the following:
Liar.
so with all your experience and education and the fact that you read these forums... you still didnt get an authenticator? major fail..

Your other posts on this forum indicate you are trolling in this thread.
He actually corrected the typo before you pointed it out.

But to the OP, everyone will say you are a liar. This is what you have invited upon yourself.

In b4 "you're lying" and "get an authenticator."

Seriously though, the problem is not on the users' end.

Edit: my in b4 was too late : (
Hey, do you have an andriod or iOS phone/device by any chance? there are free authenticator apps for them. It is hard to imagine someone like you doesnt own this type of device + didnt bother with the free app

If it's any consolation, he also misspelled "instance" and missed it in his edit.

This whole post is such a lie lmao.

You take all these precautions and then leave out the most important one, an authenticator? Nice.

Also Internet explorer is installed on every computer.

You're kind of dumb.

I apologize for the typos. As you can imagine, I am quite angry in my current state.


I know that emotion well. I was hijacked while playing yesterday and my typing errors were horrendous when trying to set up my new password and regain control. 3 minutes is more than enough time for the scum to unload your time and effort though.
