Re: was englishforum's forum-software hacked?

To answer your question, was englishforum's forum-software hacked?
Yes. Given your account plus https://www.englishforum.ch/daily-li...ty-breach.html most likely.

All the fools which reuse their password have to change them ASAP.

  • The password shows in clear text, so obvisously the Spammer/Scammer is now in possession of that password. It is indeed a password I used a while ago.
I guess others must have received this as well? It's apparently a pretty widespread kind-of phishing attack.
It is called Scaremail.

Do you know in which time period you used the password? That might pin point the time of attack.
