It's ok, that was me doing a minor mod to the email notifications! VBtestaccount is one of my test accounts, and I was posting in the hidden back room forum.
Well that certainly sent off alarms when I saw it. VB to my eyes said VisualBasic not Victoria Brampton. It had all of the earmarks of a hacker when I read them.

Sorry for scaring you! Anytime you think we might be being hacked, drop me an email as there's extra checks I would do to make sure everything was secure.

I fail to see that confusion. When you rename on import and save a second copy on import, that second copy will be renamed too. When you rename on import and use a backup utility to make a backup of the imported images, the backup images will have the new name too.
My overall system backup (and backup of that backup) will usually include photo files before they are imported into Lightroom. Belts and suspenders.

I'm with Cletus here. No website is 100% immune from a truly dedicated and skilled hacker.
