"Hack" AIM account?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My friends AIM account got hacked (nothing much, just a profile/ave change). His password is still the same, but he does not remember the secrete question/answer, so he can not get in and make changes (such as changing his password to prevent his account from getting hacked again ) Is there any way to recover this info/hack his account and change it?

Try to use some sort of bruteforce attack, it will takes years.

Seriously i dont think so

email their tech support is your best bet, they might be able to reset his account.

Yes, he can, but to do that, he needs the secret question, lol. He knows his password, but forgets the secret question, which is set up as a second password of sorts to verify who you are if you forget your password. I know of no way to go the other way, though.

Has he tried https://account.login.aol.com/opr/_c...g=en&locale=us

I'm sure there are ways to get around the secret question and password. I would try it, but don't want to mess up something that's working fine
