The only way they can get you password are if they know the email and password of the owner, if he have given that away then he have a problem, but the mail only say press this link and make a new password.
so i wold change my password and email account into my profile
And now are my norton say the forum are not safe to enter and the same on shipsim.com

Negative. it is not.

It is just the automated email from this forum, that links you, and only you, the one with the emailadress in the forum account, to a reset option for your password.

As long as no one else has access to your email adress, no one else can do anything with it.
There as never been any email that tricked anyone into giving up these details from the official forum.

Someone - anyone - can try this with anyone's account. But they will never get in that way.
Hope that clears up a misconception here. There is no hacking involved.

All sorted now anyway. So I'll lock it to prevent further speculation that might give people the wrong impression. :)


Fred.
