Spontaneous userid change
 
I've noticed that at some point a few months ago, my prime95 client switched from username 'Nebob' to username 'S423537' with a strange password I don't recognize.

I can't remember doing this myself, but then I may just be going crazy. Crazy with a capital C and an upside down y.

I only check on the client once every few months, so I only noticed this now, and I don't honestly care so long as the results are still benefiting the project and I'm not just wasting electricity. With the total inexplicability of this development, I felt compelled ask and to make sure!

Hijacked machine
 
Same thing happened to me about 2 months ago on one of my machines. Don't know if this is deliberate or a bug, but hearing it has happened to someone else validates that I wasn't seeing things. Uninstalled the hijacked account and reinstalled with my info, no problems since.

they had the database down and stuff went funky because it looked for your user but you didnt exist so it made one. check and see if someof your other computers have the same account name also check on the results page to see if nenoob still exists.

The user name on my brother's borged box also changed user names spontaneously in January. I discovered this in April when I visited my brother in New York (I live in California). All of my prior results (380+ exponents on 7 different boxes) were changed to the new user name. I asked George to switch them back.
