[SOLVED] Hacked Website

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I'm not sure if you have done this already but you should send an email to all your registered users letting them know that their data may be compromised. Some users use the same email and password combination for multiple sites, IF passwords are decrypted there is a significant risk regardless of how unlikely. Just an idea.

This is also best practice.

Thanks for your efforts.

Mike.

Advisory:

Avoid using the same password more than once.

Never store passwords in plan text! Anywhere!

User a password generator for all your passwords.

Minimum 8 characters in length (Very hard to crack).
Contains 3/4 of the following items:
- Uppercase Letters
- Lowercase Letters
- Numbers
- Symbols

Good Applications include (but not limited to):

Keepass (Windows, Mac and Linux).

Passwordsafe (great simple app for Windows).

Always back up for password databases in a locked zip file!

Every forum is the same NO ONE wants to read before they POST. They wonder why people get upset with them.
