    Most are saying changing passwords aren't working since they have access to the database

    Password reuse and cross-referring data breaches belonging to other sites might be the problem here.
    If you had reused passwords anywhere, I would strongly consider changing them with something completely different and using a password manager to help out with the storage and generation of them.
    As this forum software is well known, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a vulnerability for the version being used (whatever it is) that's being exploited in this case.

    That's why it sounds a bit far-fetched.

    I'm just worried about anyone who decides to update Luma3DS. Someone might release a fake release that bricks you somehow.
