It's such a depressing day for us; two of our friends' site were hacked by some hackers. We share their pain and hope that they will recover from this situation soon.
We are worried that the recurring incident might have a domino effect to all your account if you are using the same login credentials across multiple sites. Hence we have taken some new security measures to ensure that your privacy is protected.
All site accesses that were shared on our forum will be removed immediately. Apart from that we will also implement a much more tighter security to those who have access these site's information. In short, only trusted team members are allowed to view all of the sensitive information.
On top of that, we will also reset all of the API keys. Please ensure that your API keys are up to date by regenerating your API key via your dashboard.
To ensure that everything is secured, we have made it compulsory for our users to change their Stack Ideas's login password. When you start logging in to our now, you will be requested to change your password once. Please use a strong and secure password. For precautions; though this is not entirely necessary; we highly, highly suggest our users to change all of their passwords to their site.
Prevention is better than cure!
We also suggest for everyone to update Joomla site and their extensions to latest version. Updates will usually provide some bug and security fixes; it will also assist with the protection of your site.
