Don't know if we have been hacked again or it's a coincidence but there was a list of hacked email addresses and passwords released (posted on GMB). Many of these were glass related and of those lots were Whitefriars related.

Might be worth changing your passwords just in case.

No problem mate :). I'm sure the owners will beef up security.

The password that was shown on mine is redundant anyway. I changed it on GMB anyway but last time I changed it here I had to start over with a new account. Very annoying.

Hi,

As far as I know the password security is handled by 'Simple Machines' SMF forums......... The same as used by many online forums including the GMB.

I would advise that you CHANGE any important passwords that you are currently using online ( IF THEY ARE THE SAME AS YOU USE ON WHITEFRIARS.COM ).......

Patrick.

Ps, No one is going to bother commenting on here using your user name....... :)
