Good thing I've not changed this password since way back when people were randomly logging into eachother's accounts back in like 2014.
I should be fine in other places since I regularly change those passwords every couple months.

Eh I'd consider cryptography part of CS


https://forum.hashkiller.co.uk/topic...spx?t=9971&p=5
(It's just forum with people begging for random leaks I found.. however, from this you can see that I guess people have known about it for a while?)

If you are worried about some chinese gold farmer maybe lol.. as far as I could find, it's a private database (l0l this makes me sound like im trying to find the list of password o_O Mark my words someday I will BECOME ETIENNE), so I don't know if anything would even come of it.

Should be fine tbh, worse leaks have happened to be fair.. I'd say yeah just change your password or w/e.

I'm just curious how it happened and why lol.. I swear, someone probably just tried to steal tons of random vB databases...

By the way, I also saw a website that was saying that of the accounts hacked, 300k~ of the passwords were actually encrypted and the rest were plaintext l0l gg, probably bs.

I did take a cryptography course... with the math department lmao. CS definitely does not go as in-depth as you would expect on the security protocols side of things.

if you enter your email and it says pwned twice, is there a way to see what the 2 sites were, or is it just to guess from the list they provide. clicking the 2 times or whatever doesnt show that

Hard to take seriously a site that describes your information as having been pwned.

So the site tells me my email has been pwned 4 times in the past 8 years, and yet all four sites, that email address was tied to the same username, which it informs me has been pwned 0 times.

So I should panic because they got my email and username, except they've never gotten my username. Seems legit.

Default Re: FFR Hacked.

I would recommend users to change their passwords to something that is:
1) Reasonably strong. Avoid common dictionary words and try to mix in numbers, symbols, and/or mixed capitalization of letters.
2) A password that is not used anywhere else.
3) Not easily guessed by someone who knows you personally. For example, if your password included something about soccer because you have a personal interest in soccer as a hobby, it can be guessed. This has happened to some friends I know.

Additionally, keep in mind that:
- 61% of the 1.8 million user accounts were already stated to be hacked (i.e. compromised on other sites) in February. One of the easiest ways to have an account compromised is sharing a password amongst different sites that were already breached, so please use different passwords.
- A large majority of that 1.8 million account demographic is inactive and the passwords are probably simple (e.g. dictionary words or "abc123", I have guessed some user account passwords before on this site from being common dictionary words).
- There isn't any evidence from what we know about an attack happening through vbulletin. I did have a talk with Velocity about user security recently and he can chime in here if needed.

Just because someone is on their multiple times does not mean they use the same password on each site, or even use weak passwords. Just the shit luck of being signed up to sites with apparently weak security.

Man, gotta love logging into a site for the first time in over 9 years just because of passwords being hacked now.

I bought this to the attention of admins months ago, when leakedsource.com indicated that my e-mail showed up in records for flashflashrevolution.com. I didn't go public because I didn't want to panic anyone or alert people that might have bad intentions that the data was loose.

Nobody ever got back to me. I don't know if they didn't receive the info or not, but this is nothing new. The data has been circulating for a long time. Leakedsource has a lot of obscure leaks, so I guess the FFR data dump didn't catch the attention of haveibeenpwned until recently. I let them know about the dataleak on May 24th, according to my e-mail.

According to leaked source, the result was: Flashflashrevolution.com has: 1 result(s) found. This data was leaked on approximately 2015-10-09.

So I'm not certain where haveibeenpwned is pulling Feb 2016 from. Maybe the data was leaked twice?

I use Keepass now and have a separate strong password for everything.

Bahahahaha, I think I put in the wrong email address when changing something on here because the email I used for it is fine, but after checking, the one presented on my profile is different and was "pwned".

Double score as I don't use that email for anything else.

Really, what should happen is admins should force a check to see when passwords were last changed and force people logging in to change them, or just reset everyone's password like was done with other sites.

Ideally, e-mailing everyone about the breach would be nice, but it's likely many accounts have been abandoned by now.

Damage control is critical.

Also, holy hell, I think I'm the longest member on this thread so far. Has it really been since 2003? Almost 13 years...
