    Email address is just a long string of random numbers??

    So I got an account through hash lists. It was totally inactive, so I thought, ok, I'll be able to secure this no problem.

    I go to change the email, and it's just one really long string of numbers. No @hotmail, or any other sort of email provider... nothing. Just numbers from one end to the other.

    Email changes are pinned, so I'm dealing with the pin cracking.

    Anyone else ever see an email like this? I'm confused to how it would've even been accepted as an email in the first place. :/

    I suppose it won't matter in the end, after I crack the pin and all... but. just. confused.

    (wasn't sure where to post this, mod/admin types, feel free to move it if need be)

    I guess you can file a ticket but it would be better to stay under TNT's radar.

    It's in a hash format I believe.

    Usually I find it on inactive accounts with no pin.

    :x

    If the Pin crack is worth it, go for it.

    Yeah, I found an inactive account the other day, with what looked like an md5 hash as its email. Luckily it wasn't pinned. Maybe its a new security precaution TNT has implemented to inactive accounts? I dunno.

    Well if it's in hash format could you put it in a hash cracker?

    You're probably looking at a junior account. In the case of junior accounts, their account is locked to a single email until they turn 13. This email is encrypted so no one can change it or know what it is, but TNT will still be able to send stuff to the parent such as a lost password or a pin. The best thing to do on a junior account is just to move as fast as you can

    This ^

    I've come across it a couple times before and it was a long time ago too, so its definitely something that is not newly implemented either.
