NeoGaf suffers security breach, forces password reset

One of the most influential video games forums on the internet has suffered a security breach.

Users of NeoGaf will upon their next visit find that they are asked to change their password.

“We've just had an admin account compromised briefly by an automated attack,” a statement confirmed. “The hole was immediately plugged, but we're forcing a site-wide password reset for the safety of the members since it's possible they obtained some data.

“If you used the same password for other sites, be sure to update any relevant accounts elsewhere as well, and be especially careful with your email accounts. Sorry for the trouble.”
