    Since majority of the people here received that fake Email from BHW I was wondering how can they have our Email if it's set to Private (you cant see it). Is there a way that somebody can scrape Emails from BHW? If this is OK with you and if you don't want to answer the questions, that were raised in the thread that you closed, please let us know so everyone can scrap the Emails and use for the promotion.

    If this is not OK please let us know what will you do to protect our privacy.

    Thanks

    OP, any website will get hacked eventually. It is only a matter of time.
    Seeing the crowd a blackhat site attracts by name alone I think it is save to say countermeasures have been taken. But that alone will not protect you. You should have layers of emails or purpose specific emails. That way you can track spam better too. :p

    I don't think it is fair to ask for further protection, but he should give out a warning the DB may have been copied during the last hack. There is even a comment to support that in the other thread I believe, other than the ones I made.

    The thread was reopened btw. :)

    We take our members security very seriously.

    As per the other threads we are looking into how and why this happened now through the logs and will have an answer today.

    Early stages we can confirm no member information was compromised, it appears to be an injection into a mail queue.

    There are no closed threads on the subject. Communication will obviously remain open.

    No website is safe, Security is just an illusion :)

    There are many private exploits in the UG market for every cms/script.

    so the site owner has his words and sure he will look into this concern since this is related to members privacy so please have some patience until some serious solutions are found out using the logs i am sure once DD finds the reason he will update it on the official thread related to this topic keep engaged until then..

    I've noticed alot of newbie/freebie threads request for an email, I'd be weary and advise not to send your email client to any strangers offering free candies.
