Hello, lovely people. Some of you may be seen an ex-Beexer posting their concerns about Beex's security on Twitter today.
First off, I can't find anything that suggests any of you should be worried about the safety of your stored credentials on Beex. Several sock puppets I have only exist on Beex, and their credentials aren't anywhere online that I (or various tools) can find.
Beex is old. It will use old-fashioned encryption, and it runs on an old version of PHP. That makes it substantially less secure than something like, say, MS Teams. However, it also has way less risk than MS Teams, because that has 1,000,000 people trying to hack it, and who the fuck cares about Beex? That's right - no-one.
Still, I encourage you to use good security practises on Beex. If you use your Beex username and password in several locations, you should change your Beex password to something unique. You should change all your passwords to something unique. There are loads of tools that can keep track of them for you.
Stay safe, Beexers!
