Retro Misc Pics (20 Comments) (link)

We've had some forum accounts get hijacked recently. Nothing yet indicates any attack on OCAU, although investigations are still ongoing - but in the meantime here's some recommended ways to protect your forum account regardless. Firstly, change your password regularly, but don't use the same password on multiple sites. Secondly, enable Two-Factor Authentication as an extra layer of protection. There's some discussion about the recent issues in this thread.

Anyway, it's been a busy week, and we haven't had Retro Misc Pics for a few months, so here's the roundup from August 2009. As usual, forgive any that are more spicy than we would allow nowadays!
