"Security Incident" At WUS

Postby TemerityB » November 4th 2017, 7:37am

There's been some sort of a "security incident" at WUS; the site is making all members change their passcodes.

Say what you want about Romers, but WUS has been going to hell in a hand basket since he left.

This'll probably fuck up sales threads until everyone gets their passwords changed.
Dammit!

I changed mine the other day. I wondered why I had to change it, I have had the same password for about five years. I hope I can remember this one.

Traffic is way down over there since this. People are posting that the instructions and process for getting a new password was confusing. Many users are probably not able to get in.

Anyone with a WUS account. Especially people who made any purchases via the WUS sales forum, and have trusted the word "private" in "private messages" too much. Personal data, account numbers, and so on.
