It has come to my attention that a users password has become compromised. Someone else has managed to log in to this persons account here on AF. Not sure how this was done, and not sure what can be done either. All log-in IPs are documented so I have sent these forward... however if we are talking about some sort of hacker, then I am certain such an individual can mask their IP in some way.

Regardless it is never a bad idea to change password, and please don't use the same password here as you do elsewhere on-line.

Just got confirmation that it in fact happened on another forum.

Regardless, it's a good idea to periodically change passwords and not give them to anyone, unless it's someone you trust and have a good reason to do so.

Ah yes. Phew... (as far as this forum goes)...
