Plex announced a server breach yesterday, one which allowed a hacker to access its forum and blog server. Through this breach, the hacker could access IP addresses of users, private messages, email addresses, and encrypted forum passwords.
The email below was sent out to all Plex users who hold a forum account. It details what happened and the steps Plex has taken to ensure your account is secure following the breach.
Plex states that user credit card data is not stored on their servers, so we can be thankful for that. For now, all Plex needs you to do is change your password, and that should keep your data safe moving forward.
If any additional statements are made by Plex, we will update this post. In the meantime, make sure to change those passwords.
