    Nexus Mods is a popular mod hosting site for Fallout and other games series and has just released news of a possible security breach. Here is a truncated quote of their news post:

    The suggested course of action is change your Nexus password to a new unique password and watch news from Nexus mods. If your Nexus Mods password is shared with other sites you should change them to new unique passwords too.

    It appears the security issues were from the old 2013 security breach:

    Shouldn't they have emailed all their users?

    This notification basically boils down to "We care just barely enough that if you happen to see this post, you'll be able to take proper actions. If you didn't happen to see the post, meh."

    I already had various negative opinions of Nexus Mods but this is just irresponsible. If you're breached, you need to notify everyone. That's just basic respect for your users.
