    Exclamation IMPORTANT: GOMTV.NET Hacked

    It would seem the gomtv.net site has been hacked and all usernames, passwords and paypal real names have been compromised. You should change you password asap to prevent any one getting access to your account.

    Payment information should not have been compromised unless you used the same password for paypal and GOMTV, if so change it right now.

    Apparently GOM doesn't even store passwords encrypted, so all of them are available in plain text. (DERP).

    No, if you log in through facebook or twitter you shouldn't be affected.
