Ie: Internet forum database ‘hacked’
Irish internet forum Boards.ie has reported an attack on its user database which could affect thousands of users.
In a statement it confirmed that “an unauthorised source” from outside Ireland accessed its database server.
It urged members who use the same username/email and password on other sites to change passwords.[…]
Boards.ie says it is changing all user passwords and has notified Irish police, the Data Protection Commissioner Billy Hawkes and an independent security consultant.
