PostSubject: Security Alert   Mon Feb 20, 2012 2:50 pm

As of Febuary 19th, 2012 9:30 PM PST we discovered a breach of security on PsYcHo. PsYcHo_DaveFY's account was hacked, and a user was accepted and placed under Hidden user. This user was instantly banned and PsYcHo_DaveFY's password changed. The Forum has been placed under lockdown, and we highly recommend that you change your password as soon as you read this. We doubt that anyone who is hacked could do any permanent damage other than Dave himself, but it is unknown.

So far we have no leads of who did this or why. Nothing was edited or changed that we can see, no ones password changed, thus we don't know. We will keep you updated on any other news we find. Hopefully this has been resolved as of today, before any damage was done.

If you notice any suspicious activity of a user, or a new member, please contact a PsYcHo member immediatly. Steam is the best way to contact Dave or Derodric. If steam fails, AoM is the next option.

Derodric's Steam: Vael (Derodric)

Dave's Steam: Westorlas (DaveFY)


EDIT: I had to repost this on Febuary 20th, 2012 at around 11:50 AM PST because the topic was accidentally locked. Now users are free to post again. Sorry for the inconvinence.

EDIT: I forgot to add this before. We doubt this was a targetted attack on PsYcHo, mainly because nothing was stolen, changed, or edited that we can see. We think it was a hack of Forumotion itself, and several Superadmin names and passwords were taken. However this is only a theory, and for all we know, there could be a hacker preying on the forum.

EDIT: Make sure to keep track of when you are online, and when you are offline. To check this, look under the chatbox. If you see that you were online when you really weren't make sure to let Dave or I know.
