    I didn't get any e-mails about it, so I guess I was safe, but went ahead to change my password anyway (and fixed the e-mail, that one was oooooold). I was meaning to change my password anyway because mine was so old and dumb, so guess this is as good an excuse as ever.

    Also, nice work fixing everything up so fast. That's gotta be a record of some sort.

    If your account was damaged I don't think you'd be able to log back in.

    Either way changed my email and password, I needed to change my email anyways cause my old one I don't use anymore. Nice big long password. Godd luck everyone!

    I cannot believe this. Why is this even happening? I wonder...

    Given the hacker gained access to the database, he would have been able to download hashes of everyone's passwords (the passwords are not stored in plaintext anywhere). He could then run a dictionary attack on all the password hashes, and if you're using a simple dictionary word as your password he would be able to find it and then get into your account specifically or into your e-mail account or some other account you may have that uses the same password. If your password is short he could also run a brute-force attack on the whole list and find it that way, and technically he could run a brute-force attack for several years to find all of the passwords in the database, though that's unlikely. This is assuming vBulletin 4's password hashing is decent; I haven't actually studied it.

    All in all it's fairly unlikely anything bad will happen, but it's still better to do it.
    Oh well ****. I guess I'll change it on here and my email. I don't want some creeper logging in as me.

    funny enough i actually was planning on changing usernames today since i'm leaving for spain tomorrow... but with all this craziness we are changing some things in the ACP so i can't do it for a few more days. they'll get done, i promise.

    I found an interview he did after he had hacked another forum a month or two back.

    Judging by this, he may have gotten a hold of EVERYONE'S info here.

    That would actually serve little good. At the very best it'd annoy him and you get his personal email, but it is highly unlikely he'd use an email worth anything.

    Pokemon Showdown still works, and people there say they are redoing some things to make the site more secure. They are probably just doing major maintenance at the moment.

    You should have different passwords for every website you use.

    I've changed my password- thankfully it wasn't the same one I used on my email (since that has been hacked prior and I ended up changing it, making it a different one than the one I use here). Some people have way too much free time on their hands... :/

    Ever Grande City was also attacked. I would like to thank the SPP administration on their behalf for their help!

    Guys I really don't think we should be worrying. If he truly had intentions of getting everyone info and doing damage it would have been much harder and much more severe. All we can do is sit back and wait, and it's best to try and forget this happened, it's just feeding him your reaction.

    Gee, it's events like this that really throw off my entire day. I get really paranoid about stuff like this and I start becoming a cyber hypochondriac and think every bizarre thing that happens is the work of a hacker. A hacker didn't get my email address, and I changed the passwords to stuff but still, I'm a paranoid individual. Brrrr. These kind of things are the things that scare me the most.

    Wait, so what exactly has been going on? I understand that someone has just been randomly hacking forums, etc, but is that all?
