    GBAtemp has been hacked, it's not a hoax.

    Change your bloody passwords right now people.

    No confirmation, but some accounts were indeed hacked. Changed your password now.

    Changed my password. Also I would delete some info from this site that may help these people identify where you are. It seems they are doxing people also.

    Doxing is when people release your personal info (Ex. Address)

    It's also the truth.
    I found it hard to believe until I saw proof.

    Can we get some mods in here to suspend the affected accounts until they come back for real.

    Doxing is getting your personal information off the internet. Like where you live picture of you that kind of stuff.

    They'll get your address and do dumb, immature/childish shit. Just anything they can do to make you miserable really.
