Re: Would a data leak contain old user emails?

Yeah, you're right, I know all I need to know if you want to lock this or anything.

Edit: But thanks for the help, everyone. It was just a mild curiosity / concern and you put my mind at ease.

Re: Would a data leak contain old user emails?

Would you be able to post up instructions so I could request it from an admin? Execute query in phpmyadmin or similar tool. Change phpbb_ table prefix to yours if different. DELETE FROM `phpbb_log` WHERE `log_operation` LIKE 'LOG_USER_UPDATE_EMAIL' AND `log_data` LIKE '%MacbethRepents%'; The above ...

Re: Would a data leak contain old user emails?

So it's a existing specific log I'd like to erase, not all logs going forward, can any admin do this in the ACP? As I said before, what's the bigger picture here? Are you actually asking if you can contact the admin of a site that you use to ask them to delete the record of an email address change ...

Re: Would a data leak contain old user emails?

What's the bigger picture here? The sort of breach you're talking about would come from an admin having a simple password. If that's not the case then you're worrying about nothing. Security of the database is down to your hosts and if they're reputable and you're paying them money to look after ev...

Re: Would a data leak contain old user emails?

Okay, good to know, thank you.

Edit: Well, I say that, probably bad to know if it comes up, but you know what I mean.

Edit Edit: Is there any way to erase a user log?

Re: Would a data leak contain old user emails?

Hey, sorry, I'm just an end user of a forum not a PHPBB operator. I just know that in the forum I'm talking about, Admin can see previous email changes when they view the profile of a user. Is this not a standard PHPBB feature? If it is, could it be exposed in a data leak, I guess is what I'm sayin...

Re: Would a data leak contain old user emails?

Oh okay, so I know old emails are stored somewhere because they still show on profiles to admin when they're changed, but a hacker would presumably have to dig deeper to expose that?

Would a data leak contain old user emails?

Hey, not a technical person here, just a user on a forum with a question. If a PHPBB board were to be compromised somehow, and a data leak of usernames / passwords / emails etc. happened, would that be likely to contain old user emails too, or only current ones? Any info would be much appreciated.
