On December 16, we were made aware that someone had recently gained unauthorized access to a database from forum.ethereum.org. We immediately launched a thorough investigation to determine the origin, nature, and scope of this incident. Here is what we know:

The information that was recently accessed is a database backup from April 2016 and contained information about 16.5k forum users.
The leaked information includes
Messages, both public and private
IP-addresses
Username and email addresses
Profile information
Hashed passwords
~13k bcrypt hashes (salted)
~1.5k WordPress-hashes (salted)
~2k accounts without passwords (used federated login)
The attacker self-disclosed that they are the same person/persons who recently hacked Bo Shen.
The attacker used social engineering to gain access to a mobile phone number that allowed them to gain access to other accounts, one of which had access to an old database backup from the forum.
We are taking the following steps:

Forum users whose information may have been compromised by the leak will be receiving an email with additional information.
We have closed the unauthorized access points involved in the leak.
We are enforcing stricter security guidelines internally such as removing the recovery phone numbers from accounts and using encryption for sensitive data.
Adding the leaked emails to https://haveibeenpwned.com to help notify affected users
Resetting all forum passwords
If you were affected by the attack we recommend you do the following:

Ensure that your passwords are not reused between services. If you have reused your forum.ethereum.org password elsewhere, change it in those places.
Additionally, we recommend this excellent blog post by Kraken that provides useful information about how to protect against these types of attacks.

We deeply regret that this incident occurred and are working diligently internally, as well as with external partners to address the incident.

Questions can be directed to security@ethereum.org.

Ethereum is a coin that has refused to die even though many want it dead... maybe it's time to accept the fact that this coin has every intention of remaining at number 2.

Nobody remember Number 2, Number one is always the story. I just hope Ethereum will not go the normal Altcoin fad way
