Avast Support Forum Hacked, Information Stolen in Breach

Physician, heal thyself. In what could be considered a very embarrassing turn of events, Avast, a security firm known world-wide, has been hacked exposing personal information for over 400K users.

How the attacker breached the forum is not yet known. However, we do believe that the attack just occurred and we detected it essentially immediately.
