Site has been Hacked!!!

I would appear that these forums and the corresponding user database have been compromised (hacked). I have started to receive spam today to an email address that has only ever been used for these forums. I would recommend all users change their passwords on others sites that share the same password as this site.

Something fishy is going on! I doubt they have sold the info as the spam I am receiving is malicious in nature.

I am receiving phishing type spam, and click through malware spam to my forum address which is never been used or given out to anything but this forum.

The day / day after this thread started I will say I did get some... unusual / new spam emails through gmail that got through the spam filter.
(They were unusual in the sense of.. after looking at spam emails for several years they are kind of obvious but these ... something was unusual about these)

I didn't look at them as it was still very obvious they didn't belong in my inbox..
But since then I haven't had any issues... not sure if something happened that day in the world of spam emails or what..

I think the point is not about you selling info but running an insecurity/exploitable forum software.


As I have received 2 more spam messages all relating to some nut job and sandy hook being a fraud I think I need to figure out how to leave this forum and delete my account.
