Account Hacked

Hi there, this morning when I woke up, a friend contacted me and told me that someone had gotten access to his email, recovered his bitbucket account, removed us from our repositories, deleted the team (or revoked our access I'm not sure) and then forked it somewhere else. I have local backups of everything so that is not a problem, but this guy has our source code which is a tiny bit frustrating. Is there anything we can pursue in terms of removing his account or reverting all the stuff that he has done?

Thanks, Dan.

  1. Talk to the Atl support. There's little the Atlassian community users here can do.
  2. Take a stick and beat your friend for being so careless. Hit on the soft tissue.

Note: point 2 is optional (just in case!). However, this attack is brutal. What would be really frustrating: that hacker to change from time to time the code, add bugs, comment valid lines, obfuscate other lines. What s/he did is too obvious ... aucune finesse ... ou sont les neiges d'antan ?!?

We actually don't have repository access anymore, because he transferred it to his own team.
