Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Data Security Breach 2 - Please Update Your Passwords

Hi Everybody,

On Sunday, July 21st, 2019, a file was leaked containing the account information of 882 accounts, including:

  • Usernames

  • Emails

  • Passwords

We believe these are passwords from between the dates of April 6th - July 21st (although it may have been from a shorter time frame within these dates). We do not yet know the details over how these passwords have been acquired, but we are investigating further.

For the time being, we have had to prevent anyone from logging in to any accounts with passwords. As such, it is currently still possible to play Everybody Edits on Kongregate, but that is currently the only location it is possible to play from. Any linked accounts have been temporarily unlinked, and you should be able to play on Kongregate if your account was previously linked from there.

We have also reset the passwords for every account listed below, so you will no longer be able to use previous passwords to log in to your accounts if your password was leaked. Please make sure to change any passwords you may have on other sites, especially if you shared a password with Everybody Edits. We highly recommend that you have unique passwords on different websites.

Aside from the 882 accounts listed, we do not currently have any evidence to suggest any other accounts have been compromised.

List of Compromised Accounts

After further investigation, and working to combat these security concerns, we will bring the game back up, and provide further updates on the situation.

Sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

EE hacker revealed to be sxrrealism

On topic, I highly stress to everyone to use a password for EE that they don't use anywhere else. This should really be done for all websites, but security breaches are not as common on those websites as they seem to be on Everybody Edits. I know it's already said in the main topic, but most people are probably too focused on the list of compromised accounts. Seriously though, make a new password for EE even if you have to keep it on a sticky note near your computer.

Re: Data Security Breach 2 - Please Update Your Passwords

I honestly didn't expect this to happen again, especially when the game was approaching near the end of its lifespan... //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/sad
I want to change my password on EE, but there's a problem: The game is shutdown, so I can't log out to do it, though I'll figure it out eventually. https://wiki.everybodyedits.com/images/5/52/052_sigh
Edit: Or not. I guess I'll have to wait until the game's back on.


Oh great, the signature's animated. :/

Re: Data Security Breach 2 - Please Update Your Passwords

Okay guys it’s time for “I am the hacker 2”

you all were fooled the actual hacker is me

And back on topic; if you claim this is playerio’s fault, when will you move from playerio?

Edit: zoey is the only staff account that has been released,

Also task manager and ninjasupeatsninja classes as “famous users that were revealed”

Re: Data Security Breach 2 - Please Update Your Passwords

What a **** joke.

Like yeah, it's nice that the staff team took action to stop and fix the issue and all, but the fact that this is the second time people's personal information got leaked is massive problem.

For anyone reading - if you're planning to play EE once it's back online, stop. Do not play the game at all, because as demonstrated, you are never truly safe in EE. It doesn't matter how unimportant you believe your information is, it's still yours, and it should stay that way.


How long will it take me to get banned again?
Place your bets right here.

How are the passwords stored on EE?
Is it just on a plain text file?

Just curious.
