If anyone has used 000webhost in the past, your "id, name, ip address, email, and password" have been leaked since mid-March. Additionally the password was leaked in plain-text so if you share the password with other services you will want to change it immediately. I'd used it for a throwaway site in the past so it's unfortunate that they didn't bother to actually tell anyone impacted and I had to find out about it on the news first. Cheers!

Thank you for the information. I do have a 000webhost account. Luckily, I do not have anything important on the account, do not use the password for any other accounts and used my work email (ceosol.feedback) instead of a personal email.

Still, I was considering buying one of the memberships there. You just made that decision for me :)
