Over 1 Million Accounts Compromised on Phandroid’s Android Forum

Important information for anyone that has an account on the Phandroid Android forum; the site announced Tuesday that a hacker “recently accessed the message board’s user table along with a variety of fields including usernames, email addresses, and hashed passwords, potentially affecting all of its one million-plus users. ”  They advise anyone affected to change their password immediately.

“Although we’re confident the threat is neutralized it is still highly recommended that you change your password here and on other sites where you use the same username/password. This can be done while logged in through your UserCP, or using the ‘forgot your password?’ page if logged out. You can also contact me via PM or Contact Form and we will help you if you need.”
