Important - vBulletin Forum data breach
You may be aware that there was recently a massive attack against vBulletin forums in which user names, email addresses and hashed passwords were compromised - the full list is here: https://www.troyhunt.com/i-just-added-an...een-pwned/

We don't use vBullletin and none of our data has been compromised but one forum on that list that stood out was vapersforum.com: if anyone had an account on there (or any other of the forums on that list) then the chances are your details were grabbed, and if your password wasn't a strong one that's probably gone too.
We would therefore recommend changing your password on here if you use the same password as on any of the forums on that list

RE: Important - vBulletin Forum data breach
Thanks for this Phil - I did have an account on Vapers Forum (hadnt logged in for years mind) - have checked all my accounts now!

I won't slave for beggar's pay,
likewise gold and jewels,
but I would slave to learn the way
to sink your ship of fools

Did the forums have SSL encryption on site?.

Anything goes now to keep me off.
