[BREAKING] MyBB has been hacked [Change your passwords now]

The massive discussion board MyBB has been hacked by cybercriminals. These hackers have found a way to penetrate the website of the mybb.com website.

The hackers which are known as AnonGhost have found a SQL injection vulnerable and have exploited this.

As you can see in the image below the AnonGhost hackers have found a way to the MySQL database which is being used by the MyBB website. As we are writing this, the MyBB has not resolved the problem. It is just a matter of time before the AnonGhost hackers publish the database on PasteBin.

About MyBB

MyBB is a discussion board that has been around for a while; it has evolved from other bulletin boards into the forum package it is today. Therefore, it is a professional and efficient discussion board, developed by an active team of developers. The MyBB history has been recorded and is available for the interested to read. You can also read more about the MyBB team and why they develop MyBB in their spare time. We also like to highlight the most active and contributing fansites of the MyBB community.

 We strongly advice all the MyBB users to secure their profiles and e-mail accounts. Use a seperate e-mail account for your MyBB.com account as this will increase the security of your own environment. Please inform your friends and families that use the MyBB environment or which are active on a MyBB community.
If the MyBB.com website is vulnerable to this vulnerability then the chance is very high that other websites which are running the MyBB CMS are also vulnerable to the same SQLi vulnerability.
91700 websites are currently vulnerable to the SQL injection attack which has been found by AnonGhost.
