Data Breach

Postby apop » Thu Mar 28, 2019 10:52 pm

I suspect there's been a data breach on either this forum or the main website as I've started getting tonnes of generic spam to the email address I used to register. Is the staff aware of this?

When did you register on the site? The data breach dates to November 2017.

I'm unsure, so the staff is aware then? Were users notified?
