zirkoni The old password worked now and I changed it through the main site this time. Everything is OK now, I guess.

Japo Strange, no idea. Have you tried changing it back? Better never to touch anything on this website I guess.

I can try changing your password on the website or forum, but specially on the website I have no idea how it will work, and it's from the same page anyone can use by themselves.

Japo What help do you need? Doesn't it work if you follow the instructions in the first post? To be honest I have little confidence in the system, but it worked for me...

I tried the reset password form a few times but never received the email it's supposed to send.

I can login on the forum with the new password though...
Sorry about that. Unfortunately I can't do anything to fix how the website works or doesn't...

I think one's supposed to change the password from the website, go to "my account" then "edit". For me it worked, which surprised me actually... The website takes care of the forum account, but it's just hacked in this way, rather than properly integrated or left separate.

How many breaches have their been?

I completely forgot I made an account here and dont even remember why I did. According to Have I Been Pwned:
In November 2015, the gaming website dedicated to classic DOS games Abandonia suffered a data breach resulting in the exposure of 776k unique user records

kemo Thanks for sharing this. It was a good reminder to do a checkup on some accounts.
