I've read here some people saying that they don't read iStock's forums any more, only here.
These people might like to check their privacy settings on iStock if they have hidden their real name or location from public view.
If you opted to keep them hidden, they were now showing again.
You need to go into Preferences > Profile > Edit Profile to change them back.
Appalling.
Mentioned on the Help thread or I might not have noticed for several days.

In fact, it was sheer luck that I rechecked that thread, as the privacy issue wasn't there last time I looked, just the best match.
That should definitely have its own thread, or a group email sent out, though I and many others don't get the group emails.
ETA: also, but not as crucially for contributors, what details you see with the thums.
I see there's now a locked thread in the discussion group. Kelvin's response was a bit disingenous, as at the time of writing at least there was nothing in the title of that Help thread that indicated the serious privacy breach.
