Early this morning, someone hacked into the server that runs our forums. We take security seriously and encrypt your forum password. In order to decrypt it, the hacker would have to be willing to devote a considerable amount of time to decrypt each password, one-by-one. However, just as a precaution, we ask that you change your forum password.
It is important to remember to change your password occasionally. Geoff made a helpful blog post on improving password security that might help you select a more secure password for the future: http://www.realsoftwareblog.com/2012/12 ... urity.html
We apologize for the inconvenience.
