From what I know he changed the password after the first incident but the account was compromised again not even a week later. I wonder if who ever got in could change his "reset password" mailing account so even when he changes his password they can change it again or was it just week password or is there some "trick" how to get all around it? Could be for example his "computer" compromised? (I am sure he does not use linux).
