Possible Leak of Encrypted Passwords

Posted by magpie on Sunday 21 November 2004

As you may have noticed, earlier today the password for every Q account was changed. This was due to a suspected leak of some encrypted passwords from the QuakeNet website, shortly beforehand, causing the passwords to be changed as a precautionary measure whilst we investigated.

If you use your Q account password as any other password, we recommend you change these as well, to ensure you are fully secure.

You will be able to request your new password using Q's REQUESTPASSWORD command, as follows:

/msg Q REQUESTPASSWORD your.email@address.here We would like to assure users that we are working hard to ensure this cannot happen again, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

I had to create a new account coz i wasn\'t online at the day that the passwords were created. And i couldn\'t retrieve my old one. So i lost a few channel flags for the channels i was in.

when filling in : /MSG Q@CServe.quakenet.org AUTH nortic ******** With my correct password ofcourse.. I still get : your Q username and/or password is incorrect. How is this possible ?

nortic said on Tuesday 08 February 2005

If they were \"encrypted\" how did the hackers so easily de-crypt them to get working passwords ? There is a large amount of people whose accounts were fully compronised....were the passwords really encrypted and what other information was also leaked ? Encryption must have been pretty weak to be so easily decoded back to real passwords....

Quakenet didnt say the \"hackers\" decrypted the passwords. What they did say was.. quakenet changed the passwords as a security measure.
