Verticalscope hacked?

It appears VerticalScope had been hacked. You might want to change your password just to be safe.

Verticalscope has been working on changing password protocols. Everyone will have to change their passwords and there will be more stringent requirements for format and time limits. I've already had to change my password at AVSForum.com and have seen a notification at subaruxvforum.com

Mods here have just been notified a change is coming. If you change now, you'll be required to change again when everyone is required to change. All members will be notified by e-mail that a change will be required as well as notified on the forum. Changing now and again later or later only are your choices.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Seems the "premium" membership $$ havent been going into security...
I,ve yet to hear anything positive about verticalscope. It would seem their security has been on a vertical slope - downwards... GGRRR

Time to change our passwords??

Looks like hackers have infiltrated many web forums (Verticalscope included) and stolen over 45 million passwords.

What they want to do with a bunch of moto passwords is a quandary. They are going to steal the combine knowledge of the Krell?

PLEASE don't make me change another password. Bad guys may not realize all the important stuff on this site. I think we're OK.

Do it now and you'll need to do it again when the e-mails go out but you won't be sitting on a hacked password until then.
