Lotro Forum Maintenance

You have probably noticed that Lotro forums are down. Turbine team announced forum maintenance but they didn't release any official reason why the forums are offline.
 

We have identified a potential issue in the forum system. As a precautionary measure we have disabled our forums while we investigate. We will bring the forums back online when we complete our work. We thank you for your patience.

Please follow us on Twitter @LOTRO or like us on Facebook to receive updates during the maintenance.

    There is evidence to suggest this ‘potential issue’ is actually a pretty major security breech that has been around since the Migration of the EU servers.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing. For it to be down this long, I would bet its some kind of security breech. It always was stupid of them to have people using their game login on the forums.

    Although I wouldn’t be surprised if they deny they had any major problem.

    Their Facebook page recommends people change their passwords, which means they probably were hacked. Groups like Lulzsec get their enjoyment out of trashing gaming websites… well actually most of that group has already been arrested, but they still have some members who haven’t.
