This sites entire user database seems to have been hacked, I´m getting spammed with blackmail attempts by a hacker who claims to know my password. The problem is the password they claim to know was ONLY ever used on this site. Also it´s secure enough I can tell this site is not hashing passwords in the user database.

 

At this point ALL USERS should consider their user accounts compromised. If you have reused your password anywhere else, change it everywhere now! (And stop re-using passwords!)

 

As for the admins here: fix your server, start hashing passwords, and contact all users to inform them of the breach.
