We see an increase of email addresses that have been compromised through various data breaches and user accounts that are now being used by bots for spamming. This happens when a site has been breached and email addresses and passwords leaked. When the email is also used here, and if the same password is used, bots take over your account and spams our site.
- NEVER use the same password on different sites!
- Use a PasswordManager (We recommend Bitwarden - free for personal use - but any is better than none)
- You can check if your email address has been compromised through Have I Been Pwned
If your account is hijacked, change your password!
If you have any questions you can send @Captain Kitten a message.
