I want to catch the culprit

I need your help, my smart blog readers. This hacker deleted all 3,000 emails of mine, as well as all my blog entries of 2 years. This is very serious. He could have copies of all my emails, which contain private and sometimes classified information about companies as well as individuals.

I want to file a police report, and I want to catch him.

This is what exactly happened:

At around 4am today, I clicked on the link on my bookmarks to gmail.com, using Mozilla as a browser.

I realised there were only two emails in the account, still unread. The rest of the emails were all deleted.

I thought gmail was behaving funny, and refreshed the page.

Gmail requested for me to log in again. I tried, but with no avail of course; he has changed the password.

I checked blogger, and I was told by blogger.com to log in. I tried, and the password was changed as well.

Had a look at my site: xiaxue.blogspot.com was deleted except for one post.

Since blogger only gives out passwords to email accounts, I cannot get back my blogger password, as xiaxue@gmail.com was being hacked.

I tried to get back my gmail account by getting gmail to send my password to my secondary email, but my secondary email received nothing, even with repeated tries.

Just as I turned off the computer, gave up, and decided to cry myself to sleep, I remembered that my MSN password is the same as my gmail's.

I turned on the computer again to change it. This was around 6am.

Out of habit, I used IE as a browser (which somehow didn't work at 4am, that's why I used Mozilla), and clicked on my bookmarked link of GMAIL.

To my utter surprise, IT LOGGED ME IN.

Quickly, I changed my password and security questions.

I noticed that the name was changed to Mr Tan Kok Wan.

With the link that blogger sent to my xiaxue@gmail.com account to retrieve my password, I also managed to get my blogger account back.

Well that's that.

I am going to file a police report. Turodrique told me to write this out before I sleep... I hope you guys can help me with this. It is terrible that someone should do something like this can get away scot-free. If you can, please help me. If you work for Google or Gmail, even better!


.................


Give me a few days. A few days, and I promise xiaxue.blogspot.com will come back, stronger than ever.

I made some of you very worried, sorry. =)

YOU BASTARD. I HOPE WHEN YOU ARE EATING GUA ZI DURING CHINESE NEW YEAR, IT SOMEHOW RICOCHETS OFF AND PINCHES YOU ON YOUR SWIVELLED BALLS.

My blog got hacked

You saw what happened. (points below)

I managed to recover the bloody gmail account. And that is because of the cookies in IE. Whoever said IE sucks is WRONG! Because Mozilla, somehow, didn't let me in.

My xiaxue@gmail and blogger accounts got hacked.

YOU MOTHERFUCKER. The fucker deleted all my archives. I cannot imagine the amount of work I have to do.

And you can see what he wrote below. Asswipe!

Ok, guess what? I am exhausted. You, who are possibly asleep, missed the whole saga, which lasted like 2 whole hours.

In my anxiety, all the while crying, I wrote several emails, to many people, including all the bloggers I know:

Can you guys, please, help me put this message up on your respective blogs? If it is not too much trouble. Please help me spread the word:



Dear readers of xiaxue.blogspot.com,

Yes, indeed, my blog has been hacked. I understand some of you might be sending emails to me right now, alerting me, and the thought warms my heart (which is very startlingly cold right now mind you).

Unfortunately, the hacker is quite clever. He also managed to guess the password to my gmail account. My 3,000 emails, some of which very important business contacts, are all gone.

*snap!* Gone.

The last time I saw my account, I saw two new emails, and these were the only two. I thought Gmail cocked up on me. I laughed, refreshed, and hey, I got logged out! To my horror I couldn't log in anymore. Can you imagine the amount of time he or she took to delete everything?

Checking blogger.... GONE TOO!

How wonderful. A total of 12 or so blogs, all painstakingly done up, all gone. The media center, the FAQs, the photolog, the Hate site. My hard work of 3 years, gone.

Vanished into thin air now! How very cruel this person is. I wonder what made him or her do this.

I remember I once told Adrian, "You know what is my greatest fear?" "What?" he mumbled (not because he wanted to mumble but because he only grunts and mumbles).

It was that someone would hack into my blogger account.

Adrian laughed and said, "Then did you save all your blog files?"

I told him no. He scolded me and said, "Then you better go and save them now!"

And I did! The latest, however, was the May archives. So if you do have ways to get back the June and July archives, or you saved them even, do tell me! I never thought I would ever be thanking this person, but... xialanbin.blogspot.com did put in some work in copying my files afterall. The URL for my archives are there.

It will be hard work doing up all the old blog entries again. It will take a lot of time and sweat, but I can do it.

Because being Xiaxue means nothing can get me down, ever. Especially when so many of you are with me. Thank you Shuyin, for waking up at 430am to help me.

I started out with nothing, and I can do it all over again. I will stop those bloody tears right this moment.

Help me spread the word. Help me put this message on your blog. Do not email me at xiaxue@gmail.com from now until I get back my account. If you want a word, please email me at wendycheng@gmail.com.

Thank you.

The real Wendy

Thanks bloggers!



I am super exhausted now. I can't believe I managed to get my account back. I am really happy. THIS IS NOT A FUCKING JOKE. Please still do tell me how to get back my two months worth of archives if you can.

I'll write more tomorrow. My eyes are swollen and I am about to faint from the fatigue. Knn my heart was like a rubber band just now.


The most embarrassing thing is that I also emailed blogger support, blogger buzz, as well as .... Biz Stone to ask for help.

Tomorrow. Tomorrow when I wake up I tell you everything.


Wendy

Funny. Now that this fucker has logged into my blogger account before I feel disgusted by it. Like a body that has been tainted by a rapist.
