Thread: Forum hacked

    Exclamation Forum hacked

    Hey,

    I got an email this morning from http://haveibeenpwned.com/ informing me that my email has been subject to a leak (once again...)

    The hack seems to have been a targeted strike against vBulletin forums among which is this one. I would suggest action be taken and users informed about the leak.

    News articles:

    Thanks for letting us know Leshrack. Looks like the breach only targeted a few hundred vbulletin sites still using out-of-date security patches.

    Probably a good idea to send an email blast out to all members to give them the low-down about this?

    On the bright side a bunch of the accounts are bots so joke's on them!

    I just got the message today too. Two Factor and LastPass enabled so I am not too bothered.

    Lastpass has screwed too. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/new...eal-passwords/

    Firefox hole is still not patched. Chrome is fine now.

    I heard about this from another not so active member too. Change passwords maybe?
