Dear MyBB users,
Last night our domain name and hosting accounts were compromised by hackers.

Users of MyBB should not be concerned about their own installations. There is nothing to indicate the MyBB software itself contributed to the hacking in any way.
We hope to restore access to all services as soon as possible. At this stage we don't believe our database was compromised, however we recommend users stay vigilant to unauthorized access of their accounts.

The cause:

MyBB has a relatively low-risk security record. Personal information needs to be secure. If we can acces it, so can terrorists. The truth is buried under lies and false promises. We tried to bring the truth to light, and we were ignored.

We aksed you all before to open your eyes, have you done it? Have you seen that only you can keep yourself safe? Have you realized that only you are responsible for yourself? Have you opened your eyes to the fact that https:// does not mean that your information is safe? Or are you still being a sheep? Have you taken responsibility for believing lies?

We have, and will continue to cause destruction. Are you mad? We have given you warnings and shown you examples of what we can do. If these companies do not secure their sites properly, data will be leaked. It is as simple as that.

"hackforums.net" uses the forum software MyBB, We are tired of all the skids who claim they are hackers. As a personal note: we just don't like you, Jesse Labrocca.

For those who think that people shouldn't enter places unauthorized: remove your information. Your morals and legal jargon will not stop these things from happening. If you don't want people to have access to it, don't give them the opportunity. There is risk in every endeavor, you are all painfully unaware of the risk these databases hold. Don't despair, for we are watching, and will continue to be watching.

I don't have a problem with links.
As long as they're harmless.

Mybb I don't know much about. Why all the fuss?

Well, it's as old as SMF, and routinely beats SMF in 'best forum' discussions and polls etc.[1]

But imagine the announcement were about simplemachines.org. That's the scale of what they have to deal with.
 1. Though I honestly have no idea why. The admin panel is confusing, I find it more so than SMF's! It doesn't install properly out of the box on localhost without help, and it's trying to pretend to be vBulletin 3.x. Oh, and the MyBB fans are even worse than Apple fanbois for hyping the software and ignoring competitors. There are many MyBB fans I've met who won't even sign up to an SMF forum because it's 'worse'. Until you reskin it and it doesn't look the same as SMF default themes, of course. Then they join because they don't realise it's SMF.

Oh yes, it certainly happens if you go to cross-platform discussions (like I do at Another Admin Forum, but it's very prevalent at WebHostingTalk)
