BurgersNFries 2,407 Posted November 4, 2012 Share Posted November 4, 2012 (I realize it's Sunday & the EN staff is probably busy with doing anti-message-board-hacker stuff, but I'm going to go ahead & post this now, anyway...)I use several third party apps on my iPhone/iPad. When I realized the message board had been hacked this morning, I immediately went to the web client & changed my password. However, my third party apps are still (about six hours later) able to send new notes to my EN account. (FastEver & Clever on iPad). I was also able to actually *change* an existing note in Clever on iPad. (I tested these new notes/changes by sync'ing my 2nd PC & yes, the new notes & changes entered on my iPad (*after* I changed my password in the EN web client but hadn't entered the new password in either of these third party apps) showed up on the 2nd PC.)Since these are two apps from two different software developers, I'm wondering if both devs are lax in their password checking...but then it would seem like the login/password would be required each time one sync'd from an app...??? Maybe not... I dunno. I do have PINS on not only my iPhone, iPad & Kindle Fire, as well as utilize the EN PINS on aforementioned devices. However, I still have a concern (yah, I'm a bit anal/OC that way) that if someone has access to EN on one of my devices, changing my EN password does not seem to prevent them from adding/changing notes in my account...??? (I haven't tried deleting notes, but I'd guess that would be enabled, too.) Link to comment
