Robotech.com website update II was created by magalord1

Robotech.com seems to be back up (mostly). I was able to log in a couple of times this morning, though I had to redo my password. The site seems to have a bug with the forums though. I was able to post in the forums, but the posts wouldn't appear on screen.

I suspect that it's due to the site being off-line for several weeks. But you can post new threads. I've posted a couple of them already.

As many of you know, Robotech.com had some security issues. In an effort to keep people informed, I'll go ahead and create this thread. Merge parts of existing ones, and update as necessary. Any discussion not appropriate to the subject will be deleted. Let's keep it civil.


UPDATE 2012.06.12
We are sending out a mass email with temporary passwords and links to reset the password to a new one. Some people are experiencing glitches but we are working to get it solved soon.

E-mail to members:

Robotech.com was recently the target of a cyber attack in which hackers sought to gain access to user accounts and passwords. We immediately closed down account logins and hired professional security consultants to make updates to our website to protect our users. To safeguard against compromised accounts, we have randomized and reassigned everyone's passwords and are mailing them out to you.

We strongly urge you to follow safe password practices by not sharing
passwords or using the same password for different accounts. If you have, we suggest you take the time to change all related passwords.

In the meantime we have also reported this incident to the FBI's Cyber Crimes unit.

We apologize to all our members for the inconvenience over the past few
weeks and are working to set things right for the future.

ORIGINAL STORY:

Hi everyone

Robotech.com was recently the target of a cyber attack in which hackers sought to gain access to user accounts and passwords. We closed down account logins and hired professional security consultants to make updates to our website to protect our users. We don't have an exact date for when these updates will be completed, but are working very hard to make sure it is as soon as possible.

We strongly urge you to follow safe password practices by not sharing passwords or using the same password for your email accounts. If you have, we suggest you take the time to change the passwords on your email accounts.

In the meantime we have also reported this incident to the FBI's Cyber Crimes unit.

We apologize to all our members for the inconvenience over the past few weeks and are working to set things right for the future.
