I have just posed a thread about that in the chat section. Lots of little web sites are getting hacked these days.  It used to be that if you were small and no money was involved nobody would bother but these days everything is getting hacked because the username and password data is worth money.  Those usernames and passwords are then used to try and access your account on other sites because most people use the same password.

Be aware that the software that this forum uses has two level 10 vulnerabilities that allow a hacker using well documented methods (i.e. you tube videos) to gain complete control of the web site.

Anything you have ever posted.  Pics of your guns, usernames and passwords, if you have ever brought anything on the forum and swapped firearms licence numbers and\or bank account details are all likely to be or has already been stolen and sold on the dark net.
