Just got this message on my screen, Now please call senetor.
hmm i know now how my swiss bank account hacked ... thought DD is legit guy ...
Few days back, Chrome was showing that the connection to BHW was not fully secure, as if they were not using Full SSL. The same message is shown on websites using Flexible SSL from Cloudflare where connection from User to Cloudflare is secure but the connection from cloudflare to the server is not secure. I have hostgator hosting and they do not provide free SSL for shared hosting and therefore I'm stuck with the Flexible SSL.
this is BS
FF = Potheads.
Plot twist: Firefox is capturing the emails added in that pop up box.
“Was reported” somebody probably mass reported it or something.
I heard that BHW if full of hackers from a random stranger.
Well, BHW had a data breach in 2013 or 14 i guess..
Passwords were encrypted though. Emails, usernames were public.
Back from 2005-2010, Firefox WAS my fav because it was very smooth and fast.
But over the years it has become too sluggish.
Anyone know why?
They are busy collecting emails.
AShhhh the good old glory piece for Troy Hunts "look how good I am on Azure" / 1password affiliate program.
It's really sad that large companies have been sucked in and are now relying on this guys faked data. Even in his own FAQ's he states
@Diamond Damien has been in touch with this guy in the past and requested that he prove the data - show him what's been breached - or even give him his password - but of-course he can't do this for "data privacy reasons" and ohhhhh there maybe some hoaxes on the site, but you understand we had to get the data up early. If this was the case and passwords had been provided - I refuse to give this guy even a no follow - then mod accounts and the DD account would have been taken. But no - nothing. Crickets. Bet he wished he'd backed AWS EC2 instead of Azure.....
Unfortunately it's just another case of corporate land not understanding that this is a level of BS that's out there. None of this data has been verified - but we'll call it fact anyway why not when we can hide behind data privacy so we don't have to prove any of it.
Sad Sad state.
The data breach includes the hashed passwords. That is enough for it to be classed as a data breach.
You can already see the usernames, emails, IPs and such from the accounts. This is not (at least it should not be) publicly accessible so that it can be "scraped" as DD has claimed.
The data is accurate, as I'm sure old members like @Sherb whose private email appears on the list will tell you.
Firefox is slow AF. But that’s beside the point. If you are worried about your security then you should enable 2fa - not just for BlackHatworld but for all of your online accounts.
Like I said before I was a huge fan of Firefox from 2005-2010 but after that, it became slow as turtle lol.
Why do you think it went this slow and sluggish?
True.. I have seen the sql dump. Saw my username, email ,ip , hashed password. It was back in 2014.
Every major company is breached one day..even apple's user data is breached in 2010.
Why we are discussing in 2018 lol..
It happened . accept and change your passwords..
Security is myth. Lol
probably you have to stop using your PC from 2005.
Ahhh H - didn't take long did it. would love to know the post @Diamond Damien made these claims under that you refer to..... But anyway - you're missing the point - there is no proof of a data breach in the first place. That's what I'm saying - HIBP doesn't have to prove it and hides behind data protection, but can throw mud at others.
It's just one users opinion but I've been here since 2012 so my data should be in there and under the data protection act I understand I have a right to my data.... But as I don't have a passport with Nuf-Ced on or any government ID I'm not real - which I understand - so how can this be considered a personal data breach?
Anyway all passwords have been changed as a matter of protocol many times since then and 2fa has been added to BHW. Now more secure than ever, but totally agree with one thing @luc1f3r.n008 says "Security is a myth." - but on the other hand people have claimed to see the Loch Ness Monster to - but doesn't make it real.
