    I have got this email:

    Dear Flightradar24 user,

    I regret to inform you that late last week we identified a security breach that may have compromised the email addresses and hashed passwords (see explanation below) for a small subset of Flightradar24 users (those who registered prior to March 16, 2016), including you.


    Is it yours?


    Thx,
    federbear.
    Lot's of us got the same mail. I think FR24 should give us some more info. Like what hashing method they used on passwords (salted?). Also, why is a 2 year outdated user database online?
