Phandroid’s Android Forums has announced that a hacker had recently accessed the user table of their message boards and gained access to usernames, e-mail addresses, and hashed passwords. This could affect all of Phandroid’s 1 million+ Android forum users. A forum administrator said that the hacker most likely used an e-mail harvesting scheme and recommends that members keep an eye in their inbox for spam. Even though the passwords are hashed, Android Forums is still recommending users to change their passwords.
