Was there a security breach on this website in recent times?

got a spam email today which listed the password for this site. (ive changed it now obviously)

ive had similar ones from security breached websites in the past. (like when cloudflare was hacked, or gpotato etc)

    Could be your PC is where the breach actually is.

    nah thats impossible. its not a malware cause, the few passwords that appear are 8+ years old and always from sites that have had security problems as ive listed above.

    anyway its listed on haveibeenpwned as being gained from a generic list made from multiple sites, including this one.

    cant believe noone has ever flagged the security breach. unless they dont know.

    So you're asking if there was a recent security issue with this site because a password you used to use over 8 years ago has been discovered?  When rephrased like this does that make any sense to you?

    Grats on being able to remember an 8 year old password. I don't fully recall my ride to work this morning.
