Hi All,

I am very sorry to inform you that I just found our forum was hacked. Somehow the hacker gained forum admin access (maybe cracked my own password). I am still analyzing the log, but it's most likely the hack has a copy of the forum database now.

All your passwords are saved encrypted in the database. However, the encryption is not strong, the chance of decryption of some, if not all, passwords is quite high.

IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT EVERYONE PLEASE CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD ASAP. IF YOU USE SAME PASSWORD SOMEWHERE ELSE, PLEASE CHANGE THEM AS WELL.

I sincerely apologize for the trouble. I will do my best to fix up the breech point(s).

If you have any question, please feel free to ask in General forum.
