Default Forum Breach


Some of you may had a glimpse at some threads (that we removed) or heard rumors, but it's true that our forums have been breached in recent months. At least once that we know of. This breach included emails, usernames and possibly passwords. As we couldn't find several users in the breach it's likely the breach was only partial.

As many of you know our forum software is old and with no active web-developers this is very likely not going to change soon. So our security is not as good as it likely should be.

We have forced a password change on all our users here and on the Official PR Tournament forums and ask you with this notice to not use the same or similar passwords that you use here on other services. Please notify people that might not read this forum anymore as well of this.

We apologize for not being able to provide you with the security you deserve, but being a volunteering group it's sometimes hard to provide our players next to the game development also the best web service.

We hope you understand and once again we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

-PR Management

No worries, I'm good. I use disposable email addresses on every forum I post on and dump identities on a whim. Learned my lesson years ago when I got doxxed.

Mmm, likely cause you didn't visit the forum there in recent months. We forced it there a few weeks back.

I'll see if we can perhaps do it again.

I got a notification on my phone from this, when I was changing my password today, might be a coincidence that I was changing my password at that time.

It's very unfortunate, but you're still alive and in one piece.

It expired due to the force password reset by the admins. Everyone got that message today.

Regarding the tournament forums, we did force a pw change couple weeks back but it only affected people who actually logged in during that time. Its a poor solution because the forum software is outdated and doesn't support a native global password reset function.

We will try to properly force it again for all users with a small workaround though within the next days.
