    If you've ever registered on tsm boards change password NOW.

    1300 unique username/email address with plaintext passwords on pastebin

    How do you view this see if I’m there lol

    Are you seriously asking him to post a spreadsheet of the information of 1300 accounts?

    Old version of forum software that never got updated and running an old version of php would be my guess.

    Website owners need to make sure things are kept up to date due to vulnerabilities.

    I use haveibeenpwned.com

    Alerts me if my email address shows up..this one did with 1300+ others..I have reported it to pastebin, but it's out there now...

    I've begun using a free password manager at home and at work:

    https://pwsafe.org/

    Two thumbs up.

    Old stuff was upgraded a while back and cleaned out but they may have gotten it before then.

    Not like there is any sensitive information there.

    That maybe 95% hack proof but I prefer Paper and Pencil at 99% (i.e. 1% less due to natural disaster or misplacement).

    That must be what happened to all my DKP.

    Even if that was a three year old dump of data, it's most certainly sensitive data. People are generally very poor managing passwords.
    Parkers, Reht and Sancus like this.

    The data was leaked around February 2018 and from what little I've read about it the actual breach was estimated to be from December 2017 so would certainly have been sensitive at the time when it first made it into the wild.
