Android forum hacked 1 million passwords exposed

The popular Android users forum “Phandroid” was reportedly hacked, exposing up to a million accounts  in the latest rash of online sites being targeted by hackers. Users are advised to login and change their passwords.

Forum moderator “Phases” posted the following:

I have some unfortunate news to pass along. Yesterday I was informed by our sever/developer team that the server hosting androidforums.com was compromised and the website’s database was accessed. While the breach is most likely harmless there are important and potential pitfalls, and we want to provide as much helpful information to our users as possible (without getting too technical).

The trust of our users is extremely important and several staff members worked through the afternoon, evening, night, and morning to ensure we’re doing everything possible to regain complete security.”
