Password Resets and Security Advisory


Recommended Posts

We've had a strange pattern of spam bots flooding our forums recently; they seem to take over accounts that have not been touched in over a year through some unknown mechanism.

We have no reason to believe we have been breached, there is no evidence of intrusion or malicious access.
It simply appears that these accounts were poorly secured.

As a precaution, we've decided to reset the password of every account on the forum.
If you're unable to access your email account, you may reach out to us for a manual reset and change of email account (as long as you can prove you own that account!).

Please remember best security practices; use a password manager and strong, automatically generated passwords (we recommend keepass, lastpass, or dashlane), and don't reuse passwords across sites.

If you feel like this is too much hassle, we've also enabled the option for you to link a Google account and use it to log in, with no password required (after the initial reset, that is)

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we believe this is a necessary step to secure our systems.
