It is highly unlikely that the information breached was actually used to decipher passwords and used to hack into accounts..

However as per our original post, make sure you change your IMVU password and anywhere else if you have used the same one and it is "easy to guess".

im an oldskool player and i just read the message that IMVU sended me. i didnt recieve this message in my mail, but in my Inbox at IMVU (2 WEEKS LATER)

i am lucky that my email/account wasnt hacked or whatever these hacker(s) wanted to do with our accounts!

I think IMVU should put this important stuff AT THE HOMEPAGE, so EVERYONE can see BEFORE logging in, so we all can change our passwords immidiatly!

IMVU should also get a better security system, its 2015, most websites ALREADY got a ''hacking-shield'' to prevent this kind of stuff!

our private matters are in DANGER to be exposed, also our Payment & billing information & Physical addresses in situations where they are collected i.e. credit card orders

If the ''next'' hacker target IMVU, they will know IMVU have a weak ''hacking-shield'' and in the end they WILL succeed to get ALL of our information!



I DO NOT CLAIM THAT IMVU HAVE A BAD HACKING-SHIELD!

This was an idea of a COSTUMER:
-2 Step Verification (Before logging in, you get a code through Email/Cellphone etc, so u can verificate that YOU are the owner!)

this seems a great idea.
IF a hacker got our passwords, they can NOT loggin! we(costumers) will feel alot safer with this!

Reactions of costumers:

''Gives you such a warm fuzzy feeling......not. Don't you think its time that IMVU upgraded their security?''

''Why not now? Why do you always take days/weeks to send out messages about such important things?''


''If not for someone sharing this on Facebook I wouldn't have noticed the blue bar squeezed in between all the ads. At least make it orange so it stands out''

''so any measures to prevent this sorta thing happing again ?''

I really hope that IMVU will work towards an major upgrade

I had been sent a message 6 days ago saying my account would be hacked in 3 days.. well all I noticed was my profile card badge canvas had changed.. I'm still in this process trying but not very well to get rid of this hacker for good. Evidence? I've given them evidence.. a screen shot of the message. Still awaiting news to whether they got rid of this hacker.

I never give passwords to anyone.

As I said to staff that were handling this case.. I briefly explained that hackers don't need passwords. You don't need to give a hacker your password. They have methods like making you sign up on p o r n sites.. Yes people p o r
n sites the sites you don't wish to go on. The hacker gives you a link and you go to that site. Meanwhile they hack your account and Credit cards and you end up having your credits and credit card stolen.

LETS GET RID OF THESE HACKERS FOR GOOD (apologies for the caps)

Hope everyone reads this including IMVU staff.. it's very important.

further to my comment above:

hackers use key generators (downloadable off the net) and other programs that can access programs.. Some are computer programmers.. that can access.. lets say IMVU and once in they can look at everyones accounts without the users knowing they've changed something.

IMVU.. a playground for hackers until IMVU staff gets rid of all the hackers on IMVU

I don't know whats going on with this. Ive had my account since Nov.24th, 2007. Ive already made changes to my account for safety purposes. I however am having issues with my client. Specifically, when i log in, My screen blows up with inbox message notifications that i have not had in my inbox for days-Weeks even. Also each time i sign in, My Credits amount, is different until I either click on the credits tab, or load a room. I know how many credits i have in my account, and i know how many credits I am supposed to have in my account. I also purchased credits earlier this morning, and still have not received them. Money has been withdrawn from my account already for said credits. Could this also be part of this breach? If so, how do i get past this to get what i purchased, and why does my amount keep changing each time i log in?

A few weeks ago before I received this information about the hack I received a suspicious email stating it was from a friend on my IMVU list with a link I did not use the link and reported it as spam wish I had known about this before I got rid of it but I knew it wasn't from my friend and I told her that if she received one not to open the link as well. I thought that maybe it was just a phishing email but I was confused as to how they got a name from my IMVU friends list. Not sure if anyone else pays attention to their emails that closely but I know I will be more from now on.
