Envato Sites - You should change your password NOW!
As you may know, TutsPlus was recently hacked and all passwords compromised. They informed us that it was only a TutsPlus problem - I now doubt that assessment.
Sadly my email was down for a few days last week so I only became aware of all this yesterday, and within hours I received another email, this time from ActiveDen informing me that I'd changed my email address to email@example.com and that request came from IP address 220.127.116.11.
As you can guess by now, I didn't change my email address. Now I can't login to any of the Envato sites and of course password retrieval is a waste of time since whoever got in has changed the email address.
I've submitted a ticket to Envato but to be honest, I'm not sure what the process will be to a) prove that I'm me, and b) fix the problem.
So if you haven't already done so - change your password now!

Comments on post 1 are funny And probably what made them change tune and start going "refund", and "free". That works! Attempting to share responsibility with an old plugin does not.
Yeah, regardless of what they say - IF passwords used on any Envato site are used elsewhere change as fast as you can run. I dont trust them to know what hackers have done.
