TurboSquid Blog is Live!

Paul Teall Site

As of today, the TurboSquid blog is officially live and broadcasting to the world.  In the past, we’ve primarily announced updates and site information via our forums and newsletters.  We’re now looking to use the blog, Facebook (our fan page) and Twitter (@TurboSquid) to interact with our customers and vendors on a more frequent basis and in a more transparent way.  Our goal is to use these 3 venues to do the following:

  • Provide you with current news and updates
  • Highlight our community of artists
  • Feature new products
  • Provide tips for selling or buying on TurboSquid
  • 3D or plug-in tutorials
  • Discuss general 3D industry news
  • And more…

We’ve got several internal Squid writers who are going to contribute to the blog, and we’re excited to get started. Read More

For each password that the intruder then cracked, the intruder was able to access the corresponding FallingPixel account, and by using common passwords that some users had between their FallingPixel and TurboSquid accounts, the intruder was able to access 0.04% of all TurboSquid accounts, which includes 237 artist accounts.
