SoundBible Hacked

Just a warning to any of you out there who might have submitted suggestions or sound requests using our sites suggestion utility. We were hacked and that long list of emails has been stolen. No passwords were associated with the data so your accounts elsewhere should not be in jeopardy, however if you have seen a huge increase in spam this may be part of the issue. We have since cleared all emails from the system, but left the sound fx request for later. We will get to the sounds we think fit out system at some point.

We have spent the last several months securing this and our other sites with the assistance of many security experts and books.

Summary: Our database was cracked/hacked and a list of emails stolen. We are as secure as possible now. If you have never requested a sound this will not affect you at all.

Sorry and thank you for using SoundBible.com
