By now probably everybody is aware of the data breach that happened yesterday at x-plane.org (see the original post here in case you missed it). We do have more information now which I believe will be of interest for most X-Plane fans. Nicolas of x-plane.org confirmed that “some passwords have indeed been exposed via a hack and posted on a list”. He also added that “only a minority of accounts are concerned, yet everyone should change their password” and that both, username and passwords, were exposed (no email addresses, though).
The matter is still under investigation. However, at least we also got the confirmation that the x-plane.org store has NOT been affected (“Different servers, different software, different server location, different ISPs”). That’s a good thing for sure. It still troubles me to see something like this happen, though. What are your thoughts on this?19
