A vigilant CEG'er noticed that contour.org appeared on a list of exposed/compromised accounts as of Nov 2020.

We strongly encourage you to change your password.

Password Best Practices

Background: VBulletin had three major zero-day exploits between 2019-2020, and CEG was affected by each. As soon as we were made aware of each, we take down the site until it could be patched. It appears that one or more of these exploits exposed your password to "the dark web".

Sep 2019:
CVE-2019-16759

May 2020: This one corrupted the database such that we had to restore from a prior backup.
CVE-2020-12720
CEG announcement

Aug 2020:
CVE-2020-17496

Given that our migration to Xenforo is imminent, we will not be enforcing a password change upon login.

To change your password (instructions for VBulletin):
* On the upper right of the page, select your username
* In the dropdown, select User Settings
* Select the ACCOUNT tab
* Change your password and hit Submit.
