    Got a spam email that had all my information from this website including my password which is unique only to this site. Please be aware that someone - email sent to me with my information was from a Russian email address - has access to our information. It had my Lock and Load account information, my name, address and phone number. I have since changed my password here but if I get another email with the new password I changed to then it will verify the LnL has been compromised.

    Yep,
    Just received spam email with my details from LnL.
    Listed my email & my login password, address & fone number & wanted bitcoin, etc.

    Changed my password & will see if I get another spam email.
    What's the hacked story with this website !?

    No hack at all. I did let the IT guys know they are being safe and triple checking.

    What would filing a support ticket do. The Spam email only has the LnL website info on it. However the hacker got it - it is specific to this website.

    Hi Terry,

    Sometimes there is code in the email header and we do ask that if there is any chance of an issue you please open a support ticket. In this case it was not a hack.

    My (safe) assumption is that it's because the http version of the forums is still accessible, and logging into the forums at http://forums.lnlpublishing.com instead of https://forums.lnlpublishing.com shoots your login information off into the ether without encryption. Easily intercepted.

    It's not hacked, because it doesn't have to be.

    The http:// site should redirect to https:// instead.
