This is really sad :( This is my first day on Envato and saw this unpleasing thing, it’s really bad Envato should integrate some intruder alert kind of functionality to stop this

Actually, we need freaking ssl. We still login by sending cleartext passwords over a not encrypted connection, this is not acceptable for a site with a 2 millions userbase where shitload of money is held into users account balance.

Really bad :(
This is serious. I think we should have two passwords for the login.

The good thing is withdrawals are once a month and even if the files were to be deleted they arent really deleted so they can be restored back. Still, maybe the password for deleting the files wouldnt hurt as well :P

Yes, this is a good part, that withdrawals are not processed immediately. And I had only 15$ on my account, so this is not a big loss. My files were not deleted when I noticed that my account was stolen, anyway if he deleted the files I think is imposible to restore they back, because Envato do not keep the files after deletion. But, all what I want now is only to restore my account.

I’m pretty sure the files don’t get deleted. I think only the status changes from “published” to “disabled” or “deleted” or something so it doesn’t show up, but all the info and the files are still there.
