Default Spam -- database hacked?

Just today I received spam on an e-mail address I use *only* for Abandonia. As far as I recall, this is the first time this happened. Could anything have happened to your database?

Well, I used to have spam to _any_ address, including those I doesn't use anywhere at all. I think, some mailbots simply send letters by random patterns (it clearly visible sometimes, when letter have destination list like spectre, spectre1, spectre123, spectre999...). So it can mean nothing. But I cannot guarantee this, of course.

Confirming. And here's the source:

Everyone change your password ASAP.
Also might help to fix the vulnerability that caused it in the first place.

I just received an email from MyIDCare saying that my account here was compromised.

Nice... :-/ BTW I hope I am not the first to report it to pastebin.com

According to the owner (Abovo):
- this user data must be from the breach in November 2015;
- the website is now "more secure".

I will write a news post.

Hm, oddly, I seem to be unable to change my password. Whenever I change it in the settings, it doesn't work when I try to log in again, the old password is still on.

Lol... :-/ I'll tell Abovo this

For me it worked... Are you trying on the forum or the website? You must do it from the website, then both accounts should be updated.
