BT Community Forums locked due to data leakage

In case anyone is a regular on BT's Community Forums, found here:

and was wondering why they have been unable to post, the answer can
be found here:,304.0.html

I suggest reading the whole thread. Basically, BT's forum software was
found to be leaking personal profile information. After frantically trying
to disable each feature which leaked information, the mods (or someone higher
up) decided to make the whole forum read-only until they resolved the issue.

It you are a member, it is possible that your email address was leaked and is searchable on Google.
