Security incident
Jul 11, 2018 - 11:19 PM - by Jenni
Jenni's Avatar Hi all, I'm afraid we have some bad news today.

At around 19:50 UTC (2018-07-09), an unknown attacker logged into our site using one of our admin's credentials. At this stage we don't know how the credentials were obtained, but are continuing to investigate. The attacker used these credentials to download large parts of our database, which may have included user email addresses, hashed passwords, private messages, and IP addresses.

Over the next few hours the attacker used our website to launch a spam email campaign against our users, sending people a link to a likely-malicious file. The emails were sent to around 1000 users before the attack was stopped at 12:44 UTC. If you have received one of these emails please do not follow any attached links, we recommend you delete the emails entirely.

The access to our systems has since been revoked, additionally we've disabled the admin features which were (ab)used by the attacker to prevent a recurrence. As you've likely noticed, we have also forced password changes for all our users to prevent the attacker from being able to use any passwords they stole in the attack. The passwords are hashed using PBKDF2 so will take some time to decrypt, however if you have used your Lolicit password on any other sites it's important to change your password there. The password reset form on our website is still safe to use, should you need it.

You have my sincere apologies for this incident, I know that in coming here you've trusted us with your details and I'm sorry we've let you down. If you have any questions, please let us know.

- Jenni


Update 2018-07-14: We believe the attacker gained access to admin credentials through malware installed on the admin's computer. We haven't found any evidence that the site itself was insecure, so good news!

Jenni's Avatar Discord deleted our old channel... probably because of all the smexy images in it.

We have a new channel now, unfortunately there's no #images channel this time around. There is uno, however! To reach the new channel click on the "chat" button at the top of this website.

Twilight's Avatar Hey everyone, we hope you're enjoying the holiday season! While we do understand and respect that not everyone celebrates Santa committing repeated egregious acts of home invasion once a year, we're wishing it upon you anyhow! \/



Merry Christmas, and thank you for your continued support of the community! *snugglyhugs n stuff*
