Statement regarding information disclosure

The issue

Today (22nd March 2021) at around 1700 UTC we were made aware of an issue in which some users were receiving emails from the site with other users email addresses CC'd into the email.

How does this affect me?

We are unsure of how many users were emailed with other users email addresses attached, however as soon as we were made aware of the issue all emails were stopped and prevented from being sent.

ONLY email addresses and usernames were released, but they were not linked so they could not be matched up, no other information was sent and accounts are safe and secure.

The cause

The cause has been traced back to a couple of situations which worked together to allow the error to occur. These were an incomplete system update which caused some old code to run along side newer code and also our developer environment not being properly closed down.

These problems have been corrected and the issue has been resolved.
