EtcetEraThread Potential ResetEra Data Breach (Appears to be False, See Threadmark)
Red Text Let’s clear this up: Our tech team investigated claims of a data breach and found no evidence of such on our end. We have no reason to believe our database has been compromised. What appears to have happened is that a determined troll gained access to a small number of accounts through known-leaked passwords (from breaches on other sites) and/or brute forcing weak passwords. One of the IPs used by the troll in question, not to mention the writing style, matches those used by a banned member who has long been engaged in alt right harassment against our community.
Not trying to create a panic but this morning, someone on Twitter claimed that ResetEra had been breached and user data including emails and passwords had been leaked online. I posted this in the and messaged staff, but no one has responded so far. Given how serious this is, I wanted to make sure everyone was aware so users could change their passwords on Era and emails / other accounts as soon as possible. I'm not sure how reliable this person is, but regardless, it would be a good idea for everyone to change their password and enable two factor authentication just in case this turns out to be real.
