Default miata.net hacked?

Found this in my updates folder this evening:

Miata.net Server security breach
Quote:
This past weekend, Miata.net suffered a breach of our servers by hackers who gained access to all our servers. Although we don't have direct evidence that they accessed the encrypted passwords stored in the database, prudence dictates that its better to be safe. As a result, we recommend that you change your password on the Miata.net forum.

We recommend using a strong password, as its much more difficult to decrypt. In addition, we recommend that you not use the same password here that you use on other sites.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Fixed that one bit for you. Couldn't come up with a fix for the intercoolers

No those Koni yellows are ****, you just have not driven on a good suspension to compare them to.

Maybe on Miata's, but I've also ran Ground Control coilovers on mulitple cars over the years and do now on my BRZ.

Are they as good as XIDAs? No. Are they "the shittiest shock ever?" Hardly.

Hey, I like my Fatcats

But back on topic, if anyone sees anything else about the breach I'd love to hear about it. I doubt we'll get anything technical out of Gary but who knows.

I sent Gary a pm asking for more info. I am curious to know what attack vector they used. We will see if he gives me any more info.

At least CR auto reset everyones password. If you did that to m.net you would loose 80% of the users because they don't know how to change a password.

I got a message back from Gary. He is pretty sure he knows how it happened and it should be fixed now. Also password should be more then fine. They were hashed then salted, so unless you use a really easy password you should be good.
