Thank you for being on top of it and taking care of it.
An official post/statement would be nice.
An official statement of how the forums were breached would be nice. If they pulled a copy of the sql database then changing passwords is a mandatory thing not "nice thing to do"
Phil has already stated that the breach was NOT at the database level. However, if you wish to change your password for a measure of added comfort, you're certainly welcome to. No passwords can be taken or harvested from the Admin Control Panel, which is the level at which the breach occurred.
A dormant admin account was compromised. The breach did not get past some antics in the adminCP that allowed them to change around the ad modules on the site. There was no SQL injection and no breach of the site's database.
Just keep the idiots from hacking and playing games. Give them tips for other forums to Yugos and stangs
You guys are keeping it straight and we are thankful for it. . THANK YOU
