Hey guys, I was wondering what exactly happened with the security breach that happened this afternoon and how this will affect us as AG users. Any help would be appreciated. :-)

Looks like we are to wait for Ferret to pop in and give us a vague response along the lines of "Don't worry guys! We are figuring out what happened, but nothing serious seems to have happened to anybodies profiles or saves! =) So all is well."

I'll tell you what..thought I was banned. That wasn't fun

Just thought? Until you get banned because of reasons unknown don't complain.

Apparently when people tried to log in to AG it was telling people to change there email. I logged out and back in and did not get this message so I don't know what is going on.

Oh, forgot to add..

It's good to know that AG has a back up precaution in case anyone manages to breach its security

What precaution are you talking about?

This seems suspicious...
Asking us to change our passwords is one of the biggest scammer plots.

Maybe there was a breach, and whoever did it is trying to steal everyone's passwords. It wouldn't let me log in until I changed my password.

Or maybe it's the actual AG staff trying to protect people from the real breachers.

I thought the same, I am quite wondering that there is no official post about it here in the Forum.......

Update: There is now a screenshot available. It was taken by another user, so it will be quoted, crediting the user who took it. Here it is:

[quote=Minotaur55]http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/armor-games-official/images/b/b6/Screenshot_%2810%29.png[/quote]

The screenshot appears to be an e-mail Minotaur55 got as part of the breach.

If only there was post editing...

The above screenshot was uploaded to the AG Wiki. That's how I accessed the screenshot.

That is what I thought Term. I have seen no sign of the AG Adkins commenting on this and find it very strange that if it was a breech I was not asked to change my password too. Seems sketchy.

*Admins

Autocorrect is a real ***** at times.

You should also clarify "Term". That may have been an autocorrect too.

Also: It looks like I was not affected by the breach.
