Around 15 hours ago, our forum was "hacked" by some people claiming to be Outsider and Valkyrie. They claimed to have stolen the user database etc... We took some time before restoring the forum to be able to give you as much information as possible about that. 1. What damage have been done and what have been stolen After investigation, it seems that the hackers got only access to the Xenforo admin panel. With the admin panel, they deleted every page/template, removed all admin/mod privileges and set a new home page with their message. At this point, we don't believe that they got access to the database, you cannot get access to it with the admin panel access. The host server of the forum has not been compromised and no files has been modified on the Xenforo installation. But even if they got access to the database, please note the password are encrypted with a salt. 2. Addittional information The forum of Starbound, a sandbox adventure game sold on Steam, has been hacked by the same group. They came to the same conclusion than us : Only access to the admin panel and no access to the database. The link : http://steamcommunity.com/app/211820/discussions/0/487876474226341647/#p1 *UPDATE* Bukkit forum was hit too : https://bukkit.org/threads/forum-security-advisory.396805/ 3. What now? The forum and the database have been restored with a backup made before the attack. The forum has been updated to the very last version of Xenforo. Access to the admin panel is now strictly restricted with new security measures, that we will not expose here. 4. Legal action All logs and information from the hack will be forwarded to our lawyers. 5. Recommendations Even if we are almost certain that the database was not stolen/compromised, we prefer recommend you to change the password on other services if you are using the same password than here. Of course we remind you that this is a bad idea to use the same password on all websites/services. We do sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
