ESET’s Forum Hacked

we have been informed by our third-party forum provider that user login details of ESET Security Forum members have been compromised. At this time we have confirmed that login data (user name/email and hashed forum passwords) have been accessed. We have requested details about the incident from our provider and have launched a full-scale investigation with them. ESET Security Forum has around 2,700 registered users and the only information stored are login details: no financial or other sensitive data are affected. ESET-operated infrastructure and ESET software users were not affected in any way by this incident.

We recommend that all ESET Security Forum users change their passwords. Having different passwords for different services is a good practice: if you used your ESET Security Forum password for other services, we recommend that you also change those passwords immediately too. Some useful tips on how to create strong passwords can be found at ESET WeLiveSecurity website: http://www.welivesecurity.com/2013/07/17/how-to-create-strong-passwords-without-driving-yourself-mad/

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thanks for reporting this, costerin.

Let’s hope SMF v. 2.0.7 won’t be affected by similar vulnerabilities in the near future. Forum providers really should improve their security audits in these our days.

Kind regards, REBOL.
