This afternoon a phishing attack was conducted in the forums and through sitemail. This attack created a fake istockphoto.com login screen, prompted the user for a username & password, saved them to a malicious server, then redirected the user back to the iStockphoto main page.

Some Q&A:

Is my credit card information safe?
iStockphoto does not store any credit card information, so there is no financial information to breach.

Is your site secure?
Our site is secure. We detected this attempted breach within minutes and implemented our security protocol: because we weren't sure how far-reaching it was, we took the site down to eliminate further exposure.

What should I do now?
Step 1: Please reset your iStock Password
Step 2: As a precaution, please make sure you reset all your online passwords on other sites if they happen to be the same as the one you use on iStockphoto.

Thanks for being so quick to act. Probably just as well they didn't do it on a weekend or something, it might have taken longer to catch.

Do we really have to change our password as well as all other related passwords on other sites even if we did not follow the phishing link(s)?

There is a problem with JS on the site now. I can't open CN request for example.. Does it have anything to do with this attack? And yes, thanks for dealing with this so quickly.

I would like to thank our security team who caught it right away--they did a really outstanding job. You can imagine things are hopping around here.

appleuzr: if you don't use the same password on all sites, you're fine.

Go to your profile page - it's on the right hand side, under 'Tools'.

To change your password, go to your page and look to the right column (under your downloads). You'll see Tools and under that "change my password."

Uuuurgh! I've a feeling I got phished as I had to unexpectedly log in when I checked the site just before it went down. Password all changed now. (And I've got to work out where else  I used that one  -  a few places I think, but as far as I can remember not for anything where they can get hold of my money! It's about time I changed it  anyway, I guess.)
