    Glad I Saw This, I used a random password but the same username does that pose any risk?

    Looks like Chaos is down now too, so much for their 10TBps DDOS protection, eh?

    One of the main devs of PkHeX is admin/mod on that site and there's a special forum section dedicated to PkHeX where he posts new builds, addresses bug reports, etc.

  5. LOL thats why you use a password manager with random generated passwords for every website you have one for.

    Wherever my imagination decides.
    I can't say I don't feel good about it. The forum is lame, the design is lame, they got some huge-ass banners about rxTools(???) and other shit. They deserved it. On the other hand, that chaos site does a better job imo.

    So everytime a site goes down, it's an attack?
    The site will experience some downtime here and there, because an upgrade is planned very soon.

    Also, for those wondering, it's back up

    So do we actually know if they have IPs and emails?

    Hackers attack piracy website and people who have accounts on the piracy website as a way to protest piracy.

    Hmm things are getting interesting. One of the main guys in the cia forum over there just pulled all his content until someone on the staff made a comment on the breach. Guy had 100k hits on his stickied thread. One of the admins made a generic comment about the site being updated securely then locked the thread and unstickied it. Too bad too. One of the few guys that didn't ad.fly every link.

    Is it known if the password were actually stored plaintext ? Because if they were it means I may be f*cked since 2015 (Leakedsource says 1 result from the iso site that comes from a 2015 source) without even knowing, that's great...

    I've been using KeePass since months (Maybe even years) for my PayPal account because I absolutely didn't want it to get hacked, but I guess I should use it for everything now (And that iso site isn't even the only one that got pwnd on which I have an account so I should already have done that long ago but I'm just lazy ;.; )

    I like the chaos place much better. It's not so cluttered with bullshit at the top. Huge banners and size 72 text across the top. Ridiculous.
