Due to a recently-discovered flaw in the TLS and SSL protocols, you may want to change your password, especially if you accessed the forum using Tor.

I just saw this headline.  What happened?   Huh

There ain't no Revolution like a NEMolution.  The only solution is Bitcoin's dissolution! NEM!

This:

The POODLE vulnerability in TLS/SSL could have allowed a man-in-the-middle attacker to read encrypted forum traffic. For example, Tor exit nodes could have used this attack against anyone using Tor to access the forum. I disabled SSLv3 to prevent this attack in the future, and I logged everyone out to invalidate any possibly-compromised cookies. If you used a proxy or ISP that you don't absolutely trust to access the forum, then you should also change your password.

Most other sites are similarly affected.

I thought the forum blocked tor exit nodes

Check out my coin Photon
Merge Mine 5 other Blake 256 coins - 6x your hash power  https://www.blakecoin.org/

The obvious choice is not always the best choice.

It isn't just tor exit nodes though.  And tor access is a good thing to allow here for many reasons - it is allowed as of now.
