Resilio forums have been hacked

Recommended Posts

The email address I created specifically for the purpose of registering on this forum (when it was still called the BitTorrent Forum) has started receiving spam. I create separate, unique email addresses for each online service I register with, which I don't reuse anywhere else, so that I know who has leaked/lost/misused any particular email address.

So clearly your database has been hacked/compromised, and your customer details stolen. And the email addresses are now being used to receive spam. Where is your notice to your customer base concerning this security breach?

In April of 2016 (9 months ago), while Sync was still owned and managed by BitTorrent Inc., BitTorrent’s user forums were hacked and a list of email accounts was stolen.

Sync user forums were separated from BitTorrent’s forums and are now managed by Resilio, Inc.  We are doing our best to ensure the security of our users, and we are not aware of any new security breaches.
