Hello everybody,

TL; DR: Change your password!

Between 14th of november 23:00 GMT and 15th of november 15:30 GMT an github(developer) account of one of the lead developers of MyBB has been hacked and used to make a bad commit to the update server.

This gave the hacker the opportunity to inject some javascript code in EVERY installation of MyBB running on the internet, the javascript gives the hacker access to at least 1 full database backup of every installed MyBB forum!

You maybe can imagine the effects of such sensitive data being leaked to a hacker.
Password are no longer safe!(offline cracking is possible with the data the hacker has received!)

Change your password immediately!!!

You can read the exact details on this hack here: http://blog.mybb.com/2014/11/15/github-a...mpromised/

There is nothing I as forum moderator can do at this point.
I've checked the logs and there is a remote possibility our forums HAVE been hit!

I cannot urge you enough: Change your password immediately!!!

In the very bad event of you using the same password on other websites change your password immediately!!!

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to PM me or post in this thread!

Hi all,

As you all may have noticed the past few weeks I have been running some advertisements on select places again.

Today I´ve extended that to the top of every thread.
I´m not going to dedicate a complete chapter to these threads again ( read last time's announcement if you want to read it: http://ovlxp.com/1XM).
This time the ads are not shown from Google adsense but from Chitika instead.

If you all could be so kind to whitelist http://overloadedxp.com, http://forum.overloadedxp.com and http://ovlxp.com.

It will help the clan in keeping everything running!
