    It hasn't, nor any of the other forums you access with your Unreal Engine id. We did have the security firm we're working with check and they were all unaffected.

    Sorry for the inconvenience
    Thanks for the clarification.

      Nothing on the internet is truly secure. If someone really wants access, they'll get access.

      Don't connect something to the internet if you want it to remain untouchable.

          You do it from the main unreal engine account, not here in vB.

            However I did notice what may be an exploit in regard to that. Since these accounts are supposed to be connected, it's like it caches the password for a while. I was able to use my old password on my phone here still well after changing it via PC. So assuming someone has access to accounts here without it being detected, they will in theory still be able to access them after a password change under certain conditions. I'd recommend some kind of forced re-login of all devices.

              So, does anyone have any idea when the main forums will be back up?

                    This is going to be a problem the next time I load the Epic Games Launcher. I may have to change the password (including here) once Epic Games fixed the issue(s).

                      The Epic Games forum accounts are not tied to the launcher accounts. If you have the same password here as you had on the Epic forums, you should change it. Be sure you log out of all of your devices and log back in if you do that.

                      Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience!

                            Hum, I guess it's more complicated than expected. Would it be possible to at least have a read-only copy of the site available? There's really useful content and knowledge on there.

                                Two weeks actually. Plan was to have it up Friday, looks like it's going to be more like Tuesday. I'm afraid the UT forums will be read only, we'll do our best to make this forum more accommodating to the affected users.
