Welcome to all phpBB2 Refugees!This site is intended to continue support for the legacy 2.x line of the phpBB2 bulletin board package. If you are a fan of phpBB2, please, by all means register, post, and help us out by offering your suggestions. We are primarily a community and support network. Our secondary goal is to provide a phpBB2 MOD Author and Styles area.

The servers hosting phpbb.com and phpbbhelp.org have been compromised.
I have received an email from Yuriy Rusko containing a list of known accounts where the plain text password has been harvested by a keylogger but the perpetrator may well have accessed the complete database of both sites.
I have just changed my password here as it was the same one that I used on phpbbhelp.org (bad practice I know).
It might be prudent if you have used the passwords to either phpbb.com or phpbbhelp.org elsewhere to do as I have just done.
