      No, a moderator's account was hacked. Specifically Vanessa Mythdust's, I think, because she posted about it happening on Twitter.

      Re: official forum been hacked

      i think it was several mods in there whose account was hacked. VMD by nature wouldn't be able to go into other mod accounts. unless she knew the passwords or her hacked account hacked them.

      usually with forums mods can not go into accounts higher themselves or others of the same rank.

      Yeah ... I didnít have the best day yesterday.

      This whole thing was a pretty huge shock to me. I try to be very careful about not clicking links I donít know or trust, not re-using passwords, etc...

      I came to find out that whoever did get into my account didnít end up cracking my password. They were able to reset it after jumping through a few hoops involving gaining access to my email by sending themselves a verification code to MY phone. Iím pretty sure I know how they were able to retrieve that code from my phone number and use it to get into my email and then my wiz account. But, I have to say, researching it has been both interesting and scary.

      Luckily, everything is fine now. Nobody else in the community or company was compromised.

      Wow that is scary. That means your email and phone got hacked too basically. Hope you're all good now and malware free.
