Acne.org Got Hacked

Recommended Posts

Hello Acne.org members!

Unfortunately, the website got hacked, you probably won't be able to view any topic. Instead, you'll be redirected to another website.

Admin is working very hard to resolve the issue by restoring yesterday's backup. That will most likely mean that any content created after the backup was made (topics, posts, messages, status updates, etc.), will be gone. Also, if you joined recently, your profile will probably be gone, too. We're very sorry for the inconvenience, but please feel free to recreate them, once the website is functioning properly again.

Thanks for understanding!

Update: it looks like the restoration process is well on its way. Also, as far as we know, no one had access to personal information, like your password or email address. However, it won't hurt to change your password, just to be sure. Personally, I use a password manager to generate and safely store strong passwords. You can get a free password manager here: http://keepass.info/download.html. Get the professional edition (v2.18), it's just as free as the classic edition.

Again, we're sorry for the inconvenience, and I sure hope that whoever came up with the brilliant idea to hack an acne support forum, will get a life pretty soon.
