    I seldom post threads here but recently received an email few weeks ago from HaveIBeenPwned mentioned that BHW had a data breach back in June 2014.

    I don't recall receiving any email from BHW about it (or maybe it got sent to spam folder...)
    Anyway, would be curious if this was old news and if BHW already know this...

    Sorry if I repost old news...

    I don't recall any data breach, I do recall BHW requesting everybody to change their passwords around that time.
    I remember some clown claiming to have the database and trying to sell it on Russian Hack Forums.
    BHW is under attack all the time.
    As long as you change passwords frequently you should be OK.
    Not sure a ZERO post account from 2009 has anything to worry about.

    TO: Ste Hughes - Nope. That wasn't me

    ...and I am not Troy either...

    I just happened to also have an account over at 000WebHost which got data breached and then I check over Troy's site which also has this in the record so I just want to make sure.... Sorry if you guys think I am trying to start a flame war or any misunderstanding I have cause...

    I seldom post because most of the stuff I need to know I can search google or look through the forum. I just didn't find anything related to that breach and that I somehow got an email few weeks ago from Troy's HaveIBeenPwned site that there was a breach...

    not related closely to this, but i just received an email from Amazon explaining that they autoreseted my password, because the email i used to register there (a dummy email) was caught in a breach not related to Amazon (i guess it was the 000webhost breach) and if i were using the same password on Amazon, that might impose a risk

    anyway, this is how a company should act who actually cares about its customers

    why don't i see this from Paypal for instance?

    No worries Mate, it is important to keep up with security issues.
    The only 3 places I see it mentioned are here and I think it would have been bigger news. But who really knows?

    I remember in 2010 some dude named Share Pro started some bullshit thread over on WickedFire about how sketchy BHW was and then proceeded to completely leak the entire Jr. VIP and VIP sections on his own forum.
