It has just come to our attention that our forums suffered a server breach and that someone was using this breach to send out spam. As a precautionary security measure, we have closed the forums and are currently migrating them to a new system.
While we have not yet found any evidence of user information being compromised, our investigation is still ongoing and we wanted to alert players to this as soon as possible.
As a precaution, we are STRONGLY suggesting that you change the passwords on both your email account registered with the JoinSquad forums, as well as on any other accounts that may have used the same password as your forum account password. We also recommend that you change your password on any account that shares the email address you used to sign up for our forums. If you linked your Steam account to our forums in order to claim Kickstarter rewards, we also recommend that you change your Steam account password.
These changes will help to ensure that if we do find evidence of user information being compromised, you and your online accounts are already protected. As a reminder, the registration process on our forums does not collect any personal information beyond user ID, password, and email address, so you do not need to worry about any other information.
Thank you for your attention to this matter!
