What is this Dark Web notification and why are you receiving this?
info_outline
The exposed information is potentially associated with the website/service therpgsite.com.
In the past you may have signed up for therpgsite.com, or provided the information to a service that is in some way associated with therpgsite.com. It may be difficult for you to remember, or you simply may not know other services are associated with therpgsite.com. What is important to know is that information belonging to you appears as if it is being shared improperly on the dark web.
Exposed information from data breaches, hacking incidents, or leaked information can be bought and sold on the dark web as “lists”. The buying and selling activity by identity thieves may occur months to years after it is actually exposed in a security incident.
Even though you may have stopped using therpgsite.com, or perhaps deactivated the account, or maybe unsubscribed, the information could still be available in their systems.
What can you do next?
Being proactive with best practices and next steps such as the following can help:
·
If your notification mentions an email, change the password associated with it. It has been exposed.
·
If your notification mentions an affected website, do also change the password to it, or to any other site where you’ve used the password.
·
Choose a new, unique, and strong password for each individual site you use. Don't use the same password each time.
·
Review your credit reports and watch for new credit inquiry alerts or suspicious activity. Consider freezing your credit file.

PM me any other info you have. There's currently no evidence of this.

From what I understand, Norton, Lifelock, and other systems that Dark Web scan for people selling passwords to sites have popped up theRPGSite as being advertised.  I haven’t looked into it though, just changed my password.  The password was unique, so not worried anyway.

Snowman0147:
Already changed my password.

Ghostmaker:
Yeah, I changed my password here and the one on my associated email. Just In Case (tm).
