AVAST support forum was hacked

Cnet.com has an article posted yesterday about an avast support forum hack which compromised usernames, passwords and email addresses

While hacking has essentially nothing to do with antivirus protection,IMHO it’s not good for Avast’s rep,as hackers sometimes also use malware to take over computers…

I was just going to Search something on the Avast forum .
It is shut down for now. I’m not a member so I was just going to look for some information.
