Thanks for the heads up.
Plex is being blackmailed by a hacker who wants ransom paid in bitcoin - Pocket-lint
Plex has been hacked, majorly.
And the person responsible for the crime is demanding ransom or else he or she will release usernames and passwords for every customer who uses the media streaming service, according to an email sent out to subscribers on Thursday.
The hacker goes by "Savaka" in Plex's forums and claimed to obtain all of Plex's "data, customers as well as software and files." Savaka is now demanding a bitcoin payment or else the data will be released. Plex has independently confirmed that a server, which hosts Plex's forums and blog, was compromised...
Looks like they forcibly reset anyone's password that had a forum account with the same name as their plex.tv account, but change it anyway, just to be safe.
Are the forum accounts the same as the media server login accounts?
