Whaaaat?? I feel terrible for the members and management of that community.

I am going to be monitoring this.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I don't frequent WHT much, so I learned about it through you. I am sure there are many members here who also have an account there.

Off to change my password and read more about it.

It's true. Looks like all of Penton's sites were hacked, according to the leak source. You most definitely need to make sure that you change your passwords.

It's sad to see this, and absolutely sad to see that Penton's basically ignoring requests for how this happened, but I can't say I'm surprised , really.

I just don't think they will. Just look at WHMCS, they still not fully explained everything that surrounded the hack they suffered

I changed my password as soon as I saw the thread there. Who knows how long they've had access. And still no word from WHT.

Which hack? There have been too many.
WHT / Penton will have someone with a statement once it's been investigated and vetted by their lawyers.
