Update for January 23rd 2016 can be viewed here. The topic is now locked.
Unfortunately we have to inform every registered user about a database leak today.
Our former team member Michael 'AoKMiKeY' Hillcox dumped the whole development database with over 192k user records. The development database is a separate copy of our real forum database which we use on a separate copy of the forum for development and testing purposes. This database is as recent as November 8th 2015, with 191,980 members in it.
Michael has threatened us saying he intends to release this development database to the public, so for the safety of your own personal information please do the following steps and keep reading:
Please do change your password(s)!
Change your UGX-Mods password! >> Directlink to change account password <<
If you used your UGX-Mods password somewhere else, please do also change these!
We highly recommend you use for each webseite / account a new strong password in general!
What data has been stolen and might be leaked:
Data from around 192k users.
