Unhappy Help! Someone's downloading under my name

I just looked at my activity and I see that I'm downloading Ozzy Osbourne 1981-04-28 [Randy Rhoads '78-'82] (NTSC), which is strange because I already downloaded that and seeding it. I just shut my Vuze program and this "download" is still going from a different port. Someone please tell me what's going on and who do I contact to resolve this?

Did you share or send the original torrent file with a friend or anything like that?

Nope, not at all. Also the "downloader" is downloading from a different port than mine.

Re: Help! Someone's downloading under my name

Does someone have access to your username and account?
If so change your password.

Is Vuze currently running in task manager? If so "end task"

Try and contact an Admin if you haven't already.

Wish I could be more help...I'm sure you feel violated. That sucks

I hope this is just some technical glitch that's causing this.

Re: Help! Someone's downloading under my name

According to your profile page and the Ozzy thread you aren't downloading and/or uploading it any more. If it is still running in your client, try to find out (besides the port number) what the IP-address is.

Unfortunately this "download" finished overnight so I wasn't able to get any of this info in time to send. Stupid of me I know. Strange thing is my name is not even listed under Last Few Who Completed on that Ozzy/Rhoads DVD post.

I just did some fiddling with Vuze and got the IP address of the perpetrator. Hope this helps.

I assume this is a different ip than yours right? I'm no internet detective (may be just for finding shows) but I'm sure there are other members who are.

What I would do is the following. Change your current password for this site. Send a message to the mods explaining your situation and I am sure they can do something with the IP you just gave.

Re: Help! Someone's downloading under my name

I doubt it's a registered user since they seem to have hacked in my account to download a torrent. Why wouldn't they use their own if they registered properly?

Re: Help! Someone's downloading under my name

if someone hacked your account you wouldn't see the data flow on your personal workstation.
the issue is elsewhere - sorry.

Re: Help! Someone's downloading under my name

my guess would be its a Vuze issue...being that its Java based, i'd suspect theres plenty of holes

change password here for safety, and i'd switch bt clients to something not Java based

Here is some more proof. I attached here 3 screenshoots.

Screen1 shows my workstation. Notice that I happen to be seeding two torrents - The Ozzy Randy/Rhoads DVD and a Spiritual Beggars DVD. There's one problem: I have since deleted the Ozzy/Rhoads DVD torrent from my drive so this is obviously NOT ME.

Screen2 shows the seeders for the Ozzy/Rhoads DVD. Notice the port the perpetrator is using = 15224 . Also yet again, I AM NO LONGER SEEDING this from my Vuze and have deleted it from my drive. This is the person that "downloaded" using my username.

Screen3 shows the seeder for the Spiritual Beggars DVD which I AM seeding and my port is actually set up as 50231.

This all happening right now so does this make my problem more clear?
