    Raptr Was Hacked, Oh Noes

    I don't use it myself, but I know of atleast one other FLOT member who uses Raptr. @YonderGod

    If you have an account with them, time to change your password. Use strong passwords, and even check out some of password generators/vaults out there.

    User names, email addresses, password hashes, and some first and last names may have been accessed. This means that although the passwords are hashed, users with weak passwords are vulnerable to unauthorized access. It's important to note that our two-factor authentication system used for redeeming Raptr Reward Points ensures that even if your Raptr account was among those compromised, the points you've earned as a Raptr member are protected.
    If you have no idea what Raptr is, as I expect many people do, don't worry carry on :P

    It's x-fire with some added functionality (social media/sharing). Created by one of the x-fire founders, and will presumably meet the same fate as x-fire :P

    I was talking about the chat service. I honestly didn't know they had anything else.
