Forum Hacking

Hey guys,

The Cowboys Stampede forum and BroncosHQ forum have both been hacked so far, I believe these hackers are going after all RL forums so this is just a friendly heads up for you guys to take whatever precautions possible to prevent this.

Welcome to BroncosHQ - Important Updates will be located on this page.

On Setpember 15, between 10.00am and 12.00pm AEST, BroncosHQ was accessed by a group of hackers. It is unknown if this is related to the recent hacking of the North QLD Cowboys supporter forums.

BroncosHQ staff are currently looking into the issue, and verifying the security of our server, software, and of course all data. Early indication suggest that there is little, or no data loss, and that any personal information about you, the members, is secure. All passwords are encrypted on BroncosHQ.

We will have further updates available soon, and hopefully BroncosHQ will be up within the next hour.
