Hello everyone!

After finding out that phpBB sends the password as cleartext during the login phase, Adam decided to enforce HTTPS connections on the website hosting the forum. All your bookmarks should still work as the redirect is performed server side; maybe just update them.

Finally, although there shouldn't be reasons to worry, it's not a bad idea to change password, just in case.


tl;dr; or, as Adam eloquently put it:
