I am a former hacker, and I despise hackers.

I'm gonna be blunt: Both Google and Experian alerted me to this data breach before you guys did. I know you're proud of your encryption. But I have suffered numerous hacks as a result of this. And that isn't the fault of anyone here, but it's still very frustrating. I give my apologies for this rant.

The most important lesson I learned from AD&D is this: Trolls are best killed with fire.

Damn, Google and Experion were fast then 'cause DerVVulfman and Kirito were on it like a bonnet.

yeah, the hack was less than 2 hours old when I fixed the board and the email was sent.

I'd also like to point out, the passwords are not encrypted... encryption is a reversible process. The passwords are hashed. Hashing is one-way. The difference is very important. I would also advise, people should be using multi-factor authentication on any accounts that are important to them, like banks and email services.

Guess I dodged a planet-sized bullet by being lazy enough that I never bothered to change the new password that DerVVulfman gave me after I lost the original.

Only 2 people, huh? I guess you're not one of them, Remi.
