      (or get my own back )
      Given Keiran's knowledge of the Internet and forums in particular, I would not like to be in these girls knickers if he does want to get even.

      This should however, be a lesson for all who read this and the other forums, don't ever go away and leave your PC unsecured. If you have automatic logins set on everything and don't want to change it, pull out the CPU and take it with you. Drastic, but effective.

      Or if you need automatic logins setup, or save your passwords, get a Biometric reader so that only you and your print have access

      But seriously, everything should have a non dictionary password, passwords should never be the same (especially if its to something that gives access to money or similar) and so on.

      I've been following this for a few days and refrained from commenting until the facts became clear! Who goes on holiday and doesn't at least set a password on their Windows account(s)! Doubt the girls that done it would have been able to hack that??

      I don't know who these girls were (and don't want to know) but I would hope that the young man comes on here and Digital Spy and posts an apology for what has happened. It was his computer that was used and as others have said above if it had been password protected this would not have happened.

      Re: Removed News Item

      Ahh,

      But thats the problem. I can hack the windows password in approx 20 seconds flat. No matter how complex it is, joined to the domain or not.
      It actually doesnt require any knowledge to be fair, just the use of 1 bit of software freely available for download ont he internet.

      So until the facts have been made clear (ie there was or was no password set etc), we cannot judge less we be judged.

      Re: Removed News Item

      For someone as techy minded as Fibre 'made out', then I find it difficult to believe that he has been so careless to let this happen.

      For me the biggest bone of contention is that 'he' was due to meet one of his 'online' mates in the UK the day he 'died' and his mate over on digispy is adamant that it was fibre who made this arrangement as it was he style of speaking..... yet fibre is on holiday out of the UK and therefore was never going to turn up!

      Unfortunately the facts don't add up in any way shape or form either now or before his 'death'.

      I for one wont believe a single thing that comes out of this even if it a full posting from the 'man' himself. Too much has gone on over the past few months with his persona for it to be trusting anymore.

      A real shame if Fibre is totally inncocent in all of this, but as I say, this has been brewing for some months and if it has been a pro-longed set up, then Fibre clearly isnt as tech savy as it once appeared.

      I'm not judging, I'm simply saying that the facts posted by Fibre and others over the past few months just dont make any sense.

      The saving thing for Keiran is, if it is true, these girls would not normally have access to his PC, except that they were invited into his house. I don't think there are many who would go on holiday and secure their PC when only their parents had access. Unless they had naughty pictures or something else to hide of course

      I am sure he will be more careful in future about who he tells that he doesn't like England. That in itself will have lost him a lot of brownie points on English based forums.

      That's assuming he said he "didn't like England" ! I'm sure he will reveal all when he comes home!!
