Possibly, the entire database was compromised

The Nintendo scene site got hacked this past weekend.
Apparently, the hackers have compromised the entire DB so, if you have an account in there and use the same pass for other sites, change it ASAP!

In case you didn't know, the popular Nintendo GBA/DS/3DS scene site, GBATemp, got hacked around the past weekend. It looks like the entire site database was compromised, and hackers have even said there's a copy of everyone's private messages floating around.

If you were using the same password on GBAtemp for other sites or services, it is suggested that you change your password immediately.

At the time of this writing, the site is still offline, but should be back soon with a new forum system, dropping IPB for security reasons.

Here's the official statement from the site admin 'Costello':

More great PS3 game patches for all users out there!



Windrider and PatrickBatman have released a RE6 EBOOT Fix, for those who don't like to risk to install the newest released CFW 4.21 yet.

Good news for all CFW 3.41/3.55 users, as another great PS3 game has been fixed.

This time, 'Windrider' from Tortuga-Cove came across a decrypted Resident Evil 6 EBOOT file, and so 'PatrickBatman' decided to "add the finishing touches" (re-signing the decrypted file/s & modifying SDK version) to the file so that CEX 3.55/3.4 can enjoy.

So, you won't need to be on DEX or even install the just released Rogero 4.21 POC MFW!
