Note that there was a hacker who registered on the board and posted some shoutbox entries which caused some user browsers to prompt for a user id and password in a pop-up box.

If this happened to you and you provided a userid and password then you should consider that password now compromised. Please do not delay in changing your password asap. This should be done on any system on which that password may be used or on which the password may be guess from the password compromised.

The hacker's should were only up for a short time and hopefully no one provided their password before evasive action was taken. However, there is alway the risk of future hacking attempts so users are reminded to be very careful about where and when they provide sensitive information. If something unusual happens, particular when viewing the main index on chess chat, press cancel as the first response.
