Default Security Notice

On approximately April 10, 2017 our server was compromised by a hacker attempting to extort us with a Ransomware attack that locked us out of our files and brought down our site. Though we restored from backup, undoing the attacker's damage, there is the possibility that data from the server was stolen during the attack.

Anyone with an account here should be aware of the risk to your compromised personal data. In order to operate this forum, we store usernames, email addresses, and encrypted forum passwords. Because we store all passwords in an encrypted format, the attacker does not have immediate access to your password. However, given enough time, they may be able to crack the encryption and access your password.

While we have no specific evidence that the hacker has either stolen or decrypted your data, we recommend that you immediately change your forum password. Additionally, if you use the same username (or email address) and password on other sites, we recommend that you change your password there as well. Security experts recommend that you never use the same password for more than one account, and instead use a password manager to help you use strong, unique passwords on all your accounts.

We take the security of your personal information very seriously and apologize for this breach of trust. Since the attack, we have reported this incident to the FBI, and have passed along all available information to help in their investigation. We have also audited our server's security and reduced our exposure through improvements to the system. Additionally we are in the process of investigating a new hosting solution that will allow us to run newer, more secure software.

Once again, please accept our apology for any inconvenience this causes you. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them in this forum, or contact me directly via email.
