    Hello everyone,

    I came across this paste titled "OVH KIMSUFI DATABASE [LEAKED]" on pastebin:

    OVH KIMSUFI DATABASE [LEAKED] - Pastebin.com

    I don't know if its legit or not, regardless I recommend that anyone that uses ovh or kimsufi to set up 2 factor auth if they're not doing so already.

    Of course, I'm not going to pay $30 to find out if I'm on this list or not, this will just enable/empower the bad people doing this.

    Again, I don't know if this is legit or not, but I'm in the process of sending this info to ovh so they can investigate it.

    Reported to kimsufi, can't seem to find contact info for ovh, I don't technically have ovh so I can't login to report it, so maybe someone here that has ovh can let them know.

    Not really seeing any other articles related to this which leads me to believe it's not legit. Probably just a money grab. Of course, I could be wrong. Doesn't cost anything to change a password or enable 2FA.

    Ya thats interesting, I don't have much experience running forums but I'm surprised someone was able to get at their database as they're not a small company. Then again for all we know it was a disgruntled employee.

    OVH has history of not keeping their own stuff updated - their SSL server config was very bad for ages with SHA-1 certs, bad ssl cipher choices and vulnerable openssl version for a while for their forum install. So probably their forum version wasn't updated too.

    Ya, I've already decided before that I'm gonna move to hetzner.de, thanks @inthecloudblog, this kinda stuff from them isn't helping. Unfortunately I don't have the time to deal with a server move at the moment but as soon as I get a chance within the year I'm gone.

    We hava TG ( Telegram) channel from LET and obviously most have LEB /Low End Boxes. One of the pals out there tried many providers ( mainly offline.net and OVH ) and he did not want to make use ( not sure why) of Hetzner ( that said he is/was not hosting nothing critical : Plex + Helping the Internet Archive).
    Once he tried it he was really glad he went into the server bidding and got some cheap box/es.

    I have 4 x 3770's and 1x 1270v3 and all of them work very good. I use them to help a project and since I use 90% of bandwidth down and they provide 1 gig in free I can't ask for something better as I've tried plenty of providers and asked for several quotes and I doubt someone can offer me a better product for 25-26Euros.

    For those doing hosting : check disks prior to do all your deployment. Some drives are very used . You can return the boxes if you are not happy with how they perform ( for free.. try not to abuse...)

    Their English support is excellent.

    @SFLC , Thanks for report! (y)

    OVH really isn't going to import the XenForo Software. But that sad it's been leaked is bad lucky.

    I changed password and TWO-Factor is enabled on my OVH Panel old account.

    Xenforo is in my opinion the best forum software I've ever used from the user perspective, last forum I ran myself was over 10 years and if I remember correctly it was phpbb. I'm not much into forums or other communities except this one #CentminmodForLife #LongLiveKingGeorge

    Indeed, I prefer XenForo 1.5.X More than 2.0, First i was use forum for XenForo and vBulletin, phpBB, IP.Board, SMF. I don't really remember account from 2009, I was young. Because i sign up for anime forum.
