An alert was sent out today from FIRST - here are excerpts:
... What happened? On March 6, 2017, we received a report of suspicious activity for our two externally hosted websites – the FIRST Forum (forums.usfirst.org) and FIRSTTech Challenge Forum (ftcforum.usfirst.org). We immediately launched an internal investigation into this report to figure out what happened and what information may be impacted. While the investigation is ongoing, we have determined that the two websites were accessed between January 21, 2017, and March 7, 2017. These websites are forums where members of the FIRST robotics community can ask questions that are answered by the FIRST community and forum moderators. No other FIRSTwebsites, including the FIRST registration sites, were affected.
... What you can do: The next time you log in, you will need to reset your password using the forgotten password feature on the Log In page. Additionally, if you reuse the same password for other website accounts, we strongly recommend you change your password on those accounts.
NEVER RE-USE A PASSWORD!!
