It has come to our knowledge that a stolen list of all user emails and password hashes is circulating around the Internet. The data belongs to Abandonia among many other websites, and it is not clear how up-to-date it is. According to Abandonia's owner:
- In the case of Abandonia the data is probably from the breach in November 2015, about which we informed at the time.
- At that time measures were taken to make the site more secure.
We recommend everyone to change their password if they haven't yet since the time of the breach -- even though "plain text" passwords themselves don't seem to be compromised to our knowledge.
In order to change your password, please remember that you must do this via the website NOT the forum. Click on "my account" on the top website bar, then on the "edit" tab.
We are sorry this happened.
