QuakeCon forums hacked, logins/passwords taken

It’s been a while since we’ve carried news of a hacking. Shame it didn’t last.

The QuakeCon forums at forums.quakecon.org have been unlawfully intruded upon, id Software alerts via the event’s site, confirming that usernames and passwords have been compromised.

“While we have taken appropriate steps to protect the new forums from attack, we recommend anyone using their old credentials on another site to change their passwords immediately,” it’s suggested.

The new forums are said to go live “shortly.”

QuakeCon 2011 is held in Texas from August 4-7.
