R C Groups site broken into
« on: September 11, 2012, 05:10:07 PM »



I have just been advised that the passwords to RC Groups have been cracked and members should change their passwords immediately.

I have no way of telling if it is true or not, but best to check it out and change your password if you have to.

Regards
