forumsnews2draw User Database Hacked
  icon
marcello (edited Dec 23, 2008)
Our user database was recently infiltrated and usernames, email addresses, and passwords have been stolen from 2draw.net accounts.

If you used your 2draw password on *any* other site, such as email accounts, facebook, bank accounts, etc., you should change your password on those accounts IMMEDIATELY.

We rebuilt the 2draw account system with better encryption and security to help prevent this from happening again in the future. All existing accounts on 2draw have been locked.

Update: We have sent emails to everyone with information on how to unlock your account. If you still have not received this e-mail, please check your spam box for messages from abuse@2draw.net. If you are having trouble accessing your account, contact us at abuse@2draw.net.

We believe only users who registered before April 2005 are affected, but we do not want to take any chances and are contacting all users.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience and understanding.

Marcello

~2draw.net team

Please contact us at abuse@2draw.net with any questions or concerns involving this incident.

Man, what a fiasco. Really sorry this all happened, but like QT said, thanks for being on the ball with the quickness. Glad everything worked out for the most part.

DDD:
Question, what makes you think it will only affect accounts before April 2005?

Man, that really sucks ]:
You guys rock, though. Thanks for clearing things up so quickly.

our internal investigation found evidence that they only accessed a section of our database due to a fluke in the data.

  icon
davincipoppalag (Dec 25, 2008)

  icon
davincipoppalag (Dec 25, 2008)
Well.. after shutting down for awhile and coming back.. I had to log in again
  icon
marcello (Dec 25, 2008)
davinci: you probably have to log in again after the fix to set the cookie properly.
  icon
davincipoppalag (edited Dec 25, 2008)
we shall see nope.. still don't work.. I guess I mighthave to clean the cache eh?

marcello (Dec 25, 2008)
try deleting all of your 2draw cookies and seeing if that works.
 
DBAasCindy (edited Dec 26, 2008)
HEY MARCELLO... I went to the url in my email, and when I entered in my old password for my deadlyblondearcher account and tried to create a new password, it is giving me an "error accessing account" red flag, and won't let me log in with a new password. This was also the password for my yahoo email account listed here.. i didn't use it for much of anything anymore.. (still, stupid, i know..,and of course i changed the pass there as soon as I was aware) but what would have stopped someone from accessing the url you emailed, coming here and changing it to a new word before I got here to do it? I just now noticed this - I haven't been checking in much lately) Would you please help me figure out how to get in and re-set my password to secure my account here? I'd like to get it fixed and locked in a hurry... worries me. HELP!!
  icon
marcello (Dec 26, 2008)
no one attempted to access your 2draw account besides you, so no need to worry about it. if you can still get into your email, I'm guessing no one accessed it (they would have changed the password). changing the password is a good idea.
 
DBAasCindy (edited Dec 26, 2008)
It's still not allowing me to access my deadlyblondearcher account at the reset url with my last password. (I'm not making any mistakes when I type it in, and i'm correctly duplicating a new one...is there some way you can re-set it again for me? (maybe since you went into it it took the password you entered or something?)

Edit: Now it is taking me to the welcome page when I click on the reset url in my email.

DeadlyBlondeArcher (Dec 26, 2008)
ps. Oh, Duh. Now I should change my name to DeadlyDumbBlondeArcher. Thanks Marcello. :)

marcello (Dec 26, 2008)
no worries. glad you got it working.

HiroDaZero (Dec 26, 2008)
This is just a minor inconvenience, but everytime I come here, I have to log in and it logs me out everytime I get off even though I set it on remembering. It also says my username doesn't exist, but it logs me in anyway. >:/
  icon
davincipoppalag (Dec 26, 2008)
Read up top there Hiro clear your cache..then log in again..that worked for me on IE anyway.. I still cant get it to work on Firefox yet..but I'm trying
  icon
HiroDaZero (edited Dec 26, 2008)
I don't quite understand what you mean. ?:[

edit: okay, I solved it. ha
  icon
marcello (Dec 26, 2008)
yea. it doesn't have anything to do with cache. just an old bad cookie.
  icon
Mneeah (Dec 26, 2008)
thankyou marcello for letting us know, do you know if my old account was affected any? my old username is sutafani..... since i don't have the email adress for that account anymore it wont let me in, but that's okay, cuz i never get in that one anymore... just old art and old memories of my fat days lol
  icon
davincipoppalag (Dec 27, 2008)
I thought thats where cookies were kept.. I guess not.. must be a cyber cookie jar
  icon
marcello (Dec 27, 2008)
Mneeah: all accounts are affected.
davinci: on firefox, it's under preferences, and then the privacy section.
  icon
davincipoppalag (edited Dec 27, 2008)
ok seems to be working ok there now too :0)
  icon
RoHcky (Jan 2, 2009)
Wow. My account info says I joined 4/6/05. That means I should be safe right?
  icon
marcello (Jan 3, 2009)
actually, it is affected. I should have said that april 2005 is included. and in any case, it's better to be safe than sorry.
 
thezappo (Jan 23, 2009)

Drawsattention (May 22, 2009)
OK, I lost all my drawings and got no letter from you guys about this. Very unhappy about this.
  icon
marcello (May 23, 2009)
No drawings were lost. You may have lost access to your old account, but this can be remedied by e-mailing abuse@2draw.net.

We did our best to contact everyone on 2draw, but in some cases the e-mail address listed on an account was incorrect or overly zealous spam protection marked the message as spam.
 
PandaBreath (Aug 14, 2009)
Um... my old account Mii was hacked. And i never got the email, i dont have any spam filters either.... :/ but i cant email you guys... not allowed to. :/ dont email me though XD
