FFR Hacked again... Yes again... 2019
 
Since the community was never notified in the last one, I'm starting another thread to do it myself.

Flash Flash Revolution (2019 breach) - 1,858,124 breached accounts
Posted:Sun, 21 Jul 2019 20:31:54 Z
In July 2019, the music-based rhythm game Flash Flash Revolution suffered a data breach. The 2019 breach imapcted almost 1.9 million members and is in addition to the 2016 data breach of the same service. Email and IP addesses, usernames, dates of birth and salted MD5 hashes were all exposed in the breach. The data was provided with support from dehashed.com.
Change your passwords, secure your accounts. Hopefully the admins will do the right thing this time, although I doubt it since they didn't even bother to tell people last time.

Um...pretty sure we told everybody about the last one.

I remember when data breaches were scary, when I didn't have a password manager and unique passwords on every site.

I linked the old thread. Breach was 01 Feb 2016. 8 months later it was brought to light and posted about. Forget the fact that mandatory password changes weren't enforced. or well... anything else for that matter. I never received an email notification (Never delete emails and nothing comes up in searches).

Your answer in the old thread was "Were looking into upgrading". Apparently that didn't happen and apparently the database is still open somewhere.

Edit: This time it's even more information too... Certainly personally identifiable information like age and locations.

As it says in that thread, nothing on our end indicated a breach until literally the day that thread was posted. We posted in the thread, on the front page, and as an announcement. There are problems with the existing system for trying to force password changes.

I mean, we said at the time in 2016 The way the site is set up we can't secure your passwords, and we can't change the way the site is set up, so don't use any password you use anywhere else.

I wake up and find that we've been breached. What a beautiful start to my day

Unless God (synthlight) stepped in to make a major overhaul of the site, I don't think there's much that can be done. Just don't use the same password here as anywhere else.

This kinda stuff doesn't even phase me anymore. Only thing someone could do with this information is log into this specific account, which I've already solved, or see my age and a list of about 27 different general locations I may have been while logged in.

Well considering that this is the second time. We can likely infer that the database credentials themselves were compromised. Considering the age of the site and the lack of updates since a 2004 build of VBulletin it's likely that every PM, post, everything is exposed.

For sure it's something the admins should be worried about, namely synth, but unless hackers wanted to see how cringey I was in 2007 there's not much they could do with that info.

It's almost like you've been told this before

TheSaxRunner05 07-21-2019 04:45 PM

Re: FFR Hacked again... Yes again... 2019
 
Exactly, without God's (snythlight) intervention anyone on the site is going to have to take that risk. If that bothers you, you probably shouldn't stay around. The admins don't have the ability to implement any meaningful fix.

So stop pointing fingers at admins.

Anything we could do would open some number of us up to a large number of copyright lawsuits and also probably take the whole site down.
