Plex hacked - need to change passwords

The big recommendation is that anyone using Plex should change their passwords immediately .


Thanks for the heads-up, snowcat!

+1 Thanks @snowcat

I found it disturbing that Plex sent an email to users stating their accounts have been breached and included a link in the email to reset your password when links to password resets is one of the oldest tricks in the book for stealing passwords.

I went to and clicked on login and got a prompt to rest my password. The email should have instructed you do this instead of including a link.

Also, are the forums still down for everyone?

The Plex forums are down here…

Plex forums are back online. Does any one else feel deja vu when using the new Plex forums? :wink: lol
