For those of you who didn't hear or didn't get the email from COBB:
Yesterday we were notified that our public forum security had been breached and all forum members' user names, email addresses and encrypted passwords were downloaded. While the person responsible has claimed there is no malicious intent, that their actions were merely to show there was an exploitable security weakness in the forum and that there will be no attempt to crack the encrypted passwords, we feel that forum members should be aware of potential risks and act accordingly.
If you use similar combinations of email address, password and/or username on other websites, you might consider changing your login credentials on those sites.
The forum software has been upgraded since we were informed of this breach and the security weakness that was exploited in this attack has been eliminated.
We apologize for this inconvenience and encourage you to get in touch with us if you have any questions regarding this event.
The big potential issue here is for anyone uses the same email / password combination for other forums: change your passwords asap.
Don't say we didn't warn ya.
