Hi Folks, It's your old acquaintance MC Frontalot here! I have some shameful things to report: An enterprising youth managed to dump my site's user database. He published all the data on a hacker site, which means it's public. BIGGEST HASSLE FOR YOU: Your email is listed there, and all usernames and many cleartext passes are listed next to emails. If your frontalot.com password is the same one you used elsewhere in conjunction with this email or username, that pairing is compromised! For instance, if your frontalot.com email and password were the same as on your facebook account, you'd need to change your facebook password immediately. I posted a warning at signup that users should choose a low-security password for my site (since the phpBB2 framework mails passwords back as cleartext). I sure hope most of you caught sight of that when you signed up, but if you didn't I can't blame you. Your password has been reset and is enclosed below. This is terrible and I'm extremely sorry! I feel like a grade-A horse's ass. If I had been a more responsible guardian of passwords, I would have replaced my rickety old site code well before now. My smarter friends have been helping me fix the vulnerability that was already exploited. My site has never stored any kind of financial records — my databases don't have credit card numbers, real names, paypal addresses, or anything like that. But PLEASE make sure your password at frontalot.com IS NOT one that you're still using somewhere important. Your embarrassed friend, MC Frontalot
For what it's worth, he warned us in Secrets from the future.
Kernel developers have found and bisected the kernel issue...
They split it in half? I suspect you mean disected.
AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! *WOW* You should avoid making technical comments when you're not very technical. bisecting means git is able to track down bugs by taking known working and non-working points in a source code tree and narrow down the broken revision by working from two directions to the common fault.
