If you registered a Repopulation forum account after the 16th of June, you'll most likely need to recreate it:

The lesson here is: "If you're running any kind of website that has regular traffic, you are going to be compromised at some point. It's not a matter of 'if', but 'when'. Make sure you implement the best security you can afford, and regardless of your security measures, make sure you have a robust backup policy."

 

The internet is pretty much the Wild West, except the potential rewards are far greater and the risks are negligible.
