Most annoying about this is the lowlife hacker now has our email addresses.

Hopefully doesn't cause more spam.

 

cheers

 

While probable and unfortunate, the reality is that all of our email addresses are readily available to any hacker via any number of easily obtainable databases. I personally receive around 200 spam emails daily.

I just requested and received a password reset email.  I changed my password via the link.  My password is unique to this site so that if  the hacker is able to view the password reset information, he/she will only be able to get here.  I get spam emails in quantity too.  My email address has been on the dark web (as told to me by Experian) for years now.  I just check the spam folder every day for valid emails then delete the entire folder.  I don't get hundreds daily but I do get about 50-60. 

 

Thanks for the heads-up on the hack.

Thanks Kev. Changed my password using a random, complex password from Keychain.

 

What a pathetic loser that spends his time hacking a scale modeling discussion forum.

 

And a baseball site, based on searching for "ARTHUR SERGEEVICH TRUSOV"

As someone said on another thread, it's quite likely it's not him doing the hacking, just some low-life hacker who has appropriated his details.

 Maybe it was his test to get into the KGB/GRU ?

But not as entertaining as the professor that did the final exams for the Red Sparrow candidates...
