It is with deep regret that I inform everyone that it just very recently came to my attention that the DaniWeb database was breached in December 2015. Over a million user profiles, including email addresses and IP addresses, were stolen. Logins and passwords were protected through an additional security layer and were NOT able to be stolen.
While encrypted versions of passwords were stolen, without access to the old version of DaniWeb's code base, there is no way for a hacker to figure out the very unique encryption method, which included multiple unique salts, which we used.
Please note this attack happened over a year ago. Over the past year, DaniWeb migrated to entirely new infrastructure, a new code base, off of Apache and onto Nginx, and its login mechanism is now powered by Dazah, which is infinitely more secure.
