Thread: MOA Forum Hacked?

  1. #1

    MOA Forum Hacked?

    Got this from a club member. No idea of the validity or not.

    Haven't heard of any issues. A few weeks back there was concern about some of the latest vBulletin sites having problems. We're not running the latest version, so we might be somewhat immune. But I'm sure, smarter people behind the scenes know more about what might have or have not been going on. Stay tune!

    MOA's version of VB is older software, running a version with known security flaws. At the least they need to be up to 3.8.5, right now it's 3.8.2.

    And we pay an IT guy full time to watch over this stuff.

    I heard it from LDRider forum. Haven't received a mail from MOA on this. I took necessary precautions.

    I'm quite confident every member was sent an e-mail.

    Some users are paranoid and put in bogus addresses.
    Some users forgot to update an old address
    Some users will have the message end up in their spam filter

    If you want me to send you a copy directly send me a pm with your address.

    I got mine so maybe that means........ Changed my password though but keeping same username. Maybe we get a bit cavalier regarding any public forum (just think of all the stuff thousands of folks put on Facebook). Anyway, hope this all amounts to nothing more than a wake-up call. - Bob
