Discussing the Data Breach and the Data Stored by Vertical Scope

Though it has long been common practice on most websites that register users, the storing of users IP addresses is something that more are beginning to question.

"These lifeforms feel such passionate hatreds over matters of custom, God concepts, even - strangely enough - economic systems." - Capt. J Piccard USS Enterprise

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Re: Discussing the Data Breach and the Data Stored by Vertical Scope

Were our credit card details (for paid members) leaked as well?

Just a thought.

Re: Discussing the Data Breach and the Data Stored by Vertical Scope

So the original post/announcement was simply talking about issues with resetting passwords and it made everything seem like it was some data storage issue or glitch/malfunction.

Now suddenly today I saw the new notice talking about security and data breach They didn't have enough security to protect against a brute-force attempt? Sounds like Vertical Scope really dropped the ball on this one.

Can't believe our info could be compromised on a tennis forum of all things
