I got the following email from a forum I was subscribed to:
It is our duty to inform you that there has been a security breach on the server that Doom10 was being hosted on. It doesn't seem like the person(s) doing the breach were after private information (mostly just spam added to the pages that were shown to Google's crawlers), but as always, one should always expect the worst. They had file system access, thus it was possible to gain access to the database containing user information (user name/hashed password/e-mail).
Passwords were/are hashed and salted in the database, but we still urge that those who have reused their password change it on the other services; and if you wish to keep using the Doom10 forum, that you change it locally as well.
You can find more information on the intrusion at: http://doom10.org/index.php?topic=2333.0
We are highly sorry for any trouble that you might experience because of this.
Regards, The Doom10 Forum: Digital Video Discussion Team.
I do use different passwords on different sites, so I'm not really worried, but just curious about why a potential attacker having access to hashed and salted password is considered a security risk? I don't think the actual password could be recovered, and wouldn't the attacker need to find a hash collision to actually exploit the information?
