Thread: Database Compromised

  1. Arrow Database Compromised

    An exploit in the latest VBB caused our database connection data to be made public in the faq. It is thus possible that people may have downloaded the database. The only sensitive data stored in there is your account passwords. Note that these passwords are encrypted and would take years to crack without a supercomputer. (depending on your password strength)

    Regardless you may want to update your passwords and any other accounts that use the same one. I am sorry about this but wanted to let you all know ASAP so that everyone can ensure that their passwords are safe.

    The actual risk is very low but still I want to make sure that you all know what is going on

    Hold on, so its just the password for our accounts on the forum right?

    Yea, as stated above it is just to be safe. The actual chance of it getting stolen is very low.

    Another forum I'm on got hit and some accounts with passwords smaller than 5 characters were broken into within the two days of the exploit being published.

    They expect some people with 6 character passwords to possibly be compromised by Tuesday (depending on the words in their passwords).

    A decent GPU with a well made word table can take down some MD5 passwords up to 7-8 character with salt in under two weeks.

    So, should probably let your community know that their password and email address might have been compromised by a broadcast email and not just an announcement thread.

    As it can only really effect forum accounts they gain access to no sensitive data. That is why it is just a forum topic. I wanted to warn everyone but not have any over reaction.

    It is important to note that even with the passwords it is not possible to connect to our database remotly without being on a white list. Only the ips of the game servers are on this list.
