Is this just an artefact of the work that has been done on the site?
No - we haven't done anything like that.

If you're using the same password for multiple sites, and one of those sites gets compromised, then often the information gets published by the hackers. Apple tracks these password leaks and if you try and log in with details that are publicly available, it warns you.

I can't say for sure that the message you received is legitimate, but it won't hurt to change your BBS password if you're not sure.
