Thanks BigBiKit. I don't use passwords accross sites but I'd hate my email to be compromised as I use it for work too - I haven't noticed any suspicious activity but then I was not paying that much attention to spams either.

I am EU member and I know our law a little bit...
Nexus did nothing wrong in the eye of the law (as long as they reported the data security lack to the DPA within 72 hours). They are not forced to inform their users unless its absolutely clear that there is a high risk for the personal rights of the affected.

... but...

it would have been a nice move to make a quick post as information for all that sth happened... that its not clear what exactly... but that they recommend to change the passwords in any case... I always say "better save than sorry" ;)

I'm afraid it's not possible to quantify it exactly, we serve over 6,000 database queries per second, so it's impossible to log everything.

We do have around 10 saved logs for requests that look like direct attempts to access single users at a time, however, as we say in the main news post - we cannot be certain how many - if any - email addresses, password hashes and salts were actually accessed.

According to https://haveibeenpwned.com/ I have not been pawned.
I reckon solid measures have been taken.

it is meant to be checked regularly. i have a script that runs daily for my various email addresses. might be overkill but it works for me.

that sounds like a single person rather than a bot or a team - which possibly means it was an inside job. Blame Dark0ne, it's his fault this stuff happens anyways.
