EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: User passwords may be compromised

Post Number: #1  Postby Jessica » December 16th, 2014, 2:48 pm

Due to the attack on phpBB a couple days ago, the attacker may have also gained access to this board, at least before I changed my password. So there is a possibility your passwords may be compromised.

I recommend you all CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS immediately and make sure it's a good, strong password.

If you notice anything suspicious please contact me right away. I have yet to see anything "out of place" that the attacker might have done if he'd accessed this site, but I might have missed something.

I sincerely hope none of my sites or yours have been damaged thanks to this cowardly attacker. I wish the phpBB staff best of luck to bring back the site up and hope we can catch the attacker, whoever he is.

IMPORTANT: If you're having trouble changing your password and getting some sort of errors, please post here! I will try to deal with the errors asap (am quite busy at the moment).

I'm not able to change password. the ajax checks show Password protection level of a medium! The security is not optimal. it must be talking about my old password? because I choose a complex new one... and the page just sits there.. nothing happens. If I hit submit, then I get that ucp.php doesn't exist error.

Password is never changed it turns out.

Here is a good password generator: Password Generator - Free Online Password Generator
Check the appropriate options, and be sure to check the box that saves your setting for next time you visit that site

I use this generator to create passwords for member only areas of my gaming clan
