Recently we have had a security issue within the site and forums. As a result we have had a leak and your accounts may have been compromised. We urge you to not share the video, ignore any files said user may give you, since they may contain a virus or other malicious software, and change the password on your forum account.

Also know that ans spreading of the leak/video will be punished with a ban.

Might be already too late. Instead of changing ESF Account password, you should go ahead and change your e mail's pass (if it was the same as the ESF Acc)

Why would you do that when your E-Mail account isn't related to this database?

Changed my password on the forum, thanks for the heads up.

Some people are dumb and use one password for everything.

Isn't it ? When you register, you register with an e-mail. If you use the same password here as you use on your e-mail account, when the database gets leaked , E-MAILS along with PASSWORDS get leaked.

What comes next is usually the hackers try out the emails with the passwords. :p

Well... wouldn't expect you to use the same PW.
