On an off-topic note, I think that this can be used to show our newly Epik-funded update for utilizing forum tags in a more useful way—implementing hashtags that are united to forum tags.
This isn't the only project we've been working on. There are several more additions that are at the tail end of the pipeline.
Things can only get better from here.
Only some people with 6th sense know how busy you were with the whole team, our thoughts and support are with you.
About security I was thinking what if there can be implemented a firewall on server side (?) with rate limiting, something similar as Wordfence for WP sites, when there are too many attempts from hackers that are searching for holes, when too many accesed links are detected to block them, I use also redirection plugin and redirect all non existend found links to existent pages, I even have a special page with allot of bad words which I redirect them to it.
So you want an illegal copy of Xenforo? If that's what it contains.I was going through the latest leaked data and noticed there is mention of a DNforum git repo...
Indeed it is. I couldn't read his posts at first... ba dum tss (I'll see my way out)@404 is a great username!
Well, welcome back either way! If you need help recovering an old account and want access to it, I could surely help by PM.Cheers. Couldn't find my old credentials so wanted something nice this time around . Been following again for a while...

If so, I'm sure they won't be too happy it's being used on another URL not authorized to run it. Better off finding a nulled version (and hoping it's not got some built-in exploits) than screaming to the creators of Xenforo that you're running an illegal copy of their software... they don't play too kindly either way I hear.
@robmonster finds it beneficial to white-label and support all of the add ons/development that we're doing to Xenforo anyway (like the #hashtags above for instance), so you might as well wait before putting up something that might be buggy and not even waste time trying to find an exploit in old software.
Out of an approach toward maximum caution, we have required Epik users to change their passwords following an unauthorized intrusion into some of our domain-related systems on or before September 13, 2021.
For those who have not manually reset their passwords — our security team has already done so for your protection. For customers who have already changed their passwords since September 13, 2021, no further action is needed at this time.
To create a new password, simply complete the process through the login portal, here.
We recommend creating a unique password that you have not previously used for your account(s). Once your password reset has been finalized, you will be able to access your account information and all services as normal.
For questions related to this password change, or to learn more about our security features, please contact Epik Customer Support.

Even if you do not change your password you can still login. I did not get a prompt to change my password. I change it anyway out of caution and security.
Stay safe out there. It's a jungle.
I have two different Epik accounts. I noticed on the one where I forgot to change my password I received this email. My main account I did not receive the below Required Password Reset email.
This bulk operation was done for folks who had not done a password update since September 13. If you previously changed your password and had 2FA in operation, there was no forced password reset.
