***Earth's Elite: Urgent Notice; Potential Data Breach***
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:17:39 am »

All Earth's Elite members, past and present are receiving this email.

A few hours ago I was made aware of a potential data breach at Earth's Elite.  The Earth's Elite Staff have inspected the site and databases, we have found no indication that anything was tampered with or stolen.

As a precaution, we are at this time asking all members to change their passwords, if you use the same password here on EE that you do for anything else connected with the email account you have registered here, we recommend changing those passwords too.

We take data security extremely seriously, if we do find evidence that anything has been stolen (which we haven't yet), the appropriate authorities will be informed, I will also inform you all.

We have also upgraded our user account security, we now offer Two Factor Authentication, you can enable this from within your Profile>Account Settings if you wish to do so.  All EE Staff will find themselves redirected to set this up, before they can use any part of EE, for staff only, it is required that 2FA be used.

This is just a precaution, but we felt it's better to be safe than sorry.  If anyone has noticed anything, they should contact us immediately on senior-staff@earthelite.co.uk.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me directly on callumjackson@earthelite.co.uk, or any other member of the Senior Staff.

Regards,
C. Jackson
Chief Executive Officer

Due to a recent potential security breach, please keep an eye on the email account you have registered with Earth's Elite, I have been advised to alert you all that POTENTIALLY, one or more of you may have been subject to a phishing scam.  This notification is just a precaution, but if I didn't send this alert and someone had their email hacked I would feel bad.
