@tgstyle24: I'm from Belgium and know quite a bit about legal matters and laws, both local and international. My comment wasn't insinuating anything unlawful had happened on Nexus' part. But since when do lawyers need broken laws to sue yer arse? :P

So that what all the recent fuzz was about? I figured the whole website was acting completely weird, the last copple of weeks. It would continously send me back to my profile section, whenever I log back in. 2fa is used from the day you've enabled it.

I guess that's just the side effect, if you want your website to grow. Just make sure this is not happening even more frequent, because that's the actual feeling I get. Insecuritys seem to happen more and more often.

You're still my favourite website. Just make sure you grant the security us users deserve...:)

I understand that rationale and the importance of testing, but writing up a quick announcement and advisement for everyone to change their passwords would take a few minutes at most. I think everyone would have appreciated knowing sooner.
Hopefully this won't happen again, but if it does, I'm sure all of us would appreciate knowing earlier next time.

Keep up the good work on this site~

So does this correspond to the issue of being redirected to virus sites only from Nexus?

The fact that we're aware of it is the solution. It's the stuff we're unaware of that's dangerous. Whoever it is wants to target specific users and is probably a banned user who was a mod thief (or troll) who has beef with those users which reported them.

No one is really to blame here. Malicious intents are hard to predict in a site this massive with so many users.

Thank You for alerting me and others to the issue that you stated.
I appreciate that in spite what others here have posted.
I can only imagine the mega task that you all have trying to monitor and secure your site.
I have already updated my account password 30 days ago but, I added the Authy app to my iPhone and the 2FA today.
Thank you ,again Nexus for alerting me and others! :- )
