Huge mybb security compromise
#1
http://blog.mybb.com/2014/11/15/github-a...mpromised/

This actually affected EVERY SINGLE mybb forum, which is pretty sad...
We weren't affected for 2 reasons:

1) No one logged in the admin CP the affected day
2) We have removed the built in mybb backup feature to avoid stuff like this

There should never be any major changes possible without agreement between at least 3 people through their accounts, and no single account should be able to do stupid stuff like this.

We're supposed to be working as a team, if we aren't helping and suggesting things to each other, we aren't working as a team.

Sure but if someone gets a hold of the DB he has all the time in the world to decrypt them.
