On 19th September around 3AM GMT, the Pokemon Online website was hacked. The hacker appeared to have gained access to one of our administrators accounts. This could have been due to the Pokemon Showdown! hack that happened a few days ago. The same hacker stole a database dump from Showdown, which included password hashes. Everything has been restored and is now back to normal. Unfortunately we may have lost a couple hours worth of posts. We are doing the following to prevent this happening in the future: 1. Our websites software has been updated to the latest version to fix security holes. 2. Administrators must set a password that has never been used elsewhere. Although there are no signs that the hacker has taken a database dump, and I'm 99% sure he hasn't, it is highly recommended that you change your password immediately to prevent unauthorized account access. Please accept our apologises for this inconvenience.
