    Antionline Compromised?

    Hi Everyone.

    Not been here for ages.

    I've had a spam email delivered to my unique email address that I use for this forum.

    Could the forum have been compromised?

    Edit: Apparently it was, 5 years ago.

    I've heard rumors from NON Site owners etc..... but nothing definite. The fact that we have nothing worth losing here helps.....

    If you want, spend some time via google with a few buzz words and you'll see some of our own threads like: which could be easily confused etc..

    The site has been sending you an email in July for your birthday for a long time... In theory, one of those could have been intercepted.

    Several years back we did start forcing members to change their password.... I don't recall the parameters, but the change was for "active" members. Meaning, members that had not visited the site for a long while were not affected. Generally, it's good a business practice to do this.
