    Would you mind sending one of them to us on our adminicon address. Don't forward it. If you could attach it – as an attachment. Then I might be able to get someone to examine it and maybe get some clues from the headers.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of one of your team - condolences.

    I didn't get notification this thread had been updated today, presume that's connected with the "Find all posts" error : "connection to localhost:3312 failed (errno=111, msg=Connection refused)"

    I just got another message, sent to my CAGicon specific email so I can identify each one. Have just forwarded all messages to your adminicon addy, along with headers.

    Let me know if I can help - webmaster for 15 odd years, forum moderator and site adminicon for 13.

    I've also received the emails previously mentioned, but fortunately I use unique everything for every site so there is no risk to me personally.

    I think the responsible thing to do would be notify your userbase about this while also talking about the possible implications if using the same username/email/passwords on other sites.

    best of luck.

    thanks for the best wishes. I'm afraid that alerting our user base to this is very difficult because it means we would have to send over 1/4 of a million emails. We don't have the capacity for that and also I suppose that we will simply be accused of spamming again. Also, because we are becoming blacklisted in so many places, a lot of the messages simply won't get through.

    We try to be as open about it as possible. We don't prevaricate or make excuses. We come right out and tell people if we been hacked. This thread is an example. Unfortunately, we generally speaking only realise it when people start complaining to us.
