Attention - Password and Security Update

Hello all,

Over the next few days we will be implementing some changes to our forum password strength and password expiration policies. To make sure you continue having the best experience possible on the community, we regularly monitor the site and the Internet to keep everyone's account information safe. We've recently become aware of a potential risk to some accounts coming from outside of this community. Just to be safe, we are implementing the following changes to improve security even further:

1) We are asking everyone to change their passwords (and will force a one time reset). Along with every user on the forum, new passwords will need to be more complex, and can't be simple words (sorry, you can't have "fluffy" as your password anymore!). Please use a password unique to this community. Reusing passwords can expose your account indirectly when other websites (Twitter, Linkedin, Badoo, etc) are compromised; and

2) Your passwords will expire on a 365 day basis. When you login on the 366th day, you will have to change it.

We'll also be sending out an email to users to let them know about the changes, in upcoming weeks.

Thanks all,

Helena

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I logged into the site just a few minutes ago and a notice popped up stating something like "Due to a security issue we are going to be resetting all passwords between 6-21 and 6-23. Go to the UserCP and verify the email address on file is correct etc.............." This message locked the site for me !!! The "X" box on the message did not work. I closed the window and then reopened the site with no message or apparent problems. I take it this message means we are NOT to reset our own password. Correct ?

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

On the other Team boards where I moderate (Team Nova and Team Impala) they have generated a random string of characters for you. They then e-mail the new password to your registered e-Mail account and allow you to change it to anything but fluffy as the new rules say no words allowed (as determined by a spelling checker software check). At least eight characters upper and lower case letters required along with one number and one special character. When they mail you your password your old password is replaced with the new one so you have to log out and log back in with the new password before you can reset it to something that meets the new rules.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Hey guys,

To clarify for you, no need to reset your password on you own, as we will be sending out a password reset email as explained by Dave.

If there is anymore questions let us know,

Richard.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Suddenly I recall days of well data info that required 14 digit passwords changed ever 90 days, guess we handle very secure information. Must be tied to someones email scam.
Whats with all the ads and rare partial nude models with hanging flower baskets?

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Sooooo confused. But yes....check your email.

There was a "breach in security" where there were passwords and user names stolen from I guess a data bank.....Why ? would we need all this "extra" upper/lower case with numbers and symbols encryption stuff IF someone could just kick in the back door again just to steal info ?

Maybe I'm overthinking it again.......

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I had issues getting back in, and as previously reported the request username password page does not display an image to prove you are human behind corporate firewalls due to cross jacking of the system being used (its paid advertising through a known security exploit) I had to get in by clearing all cookies on my phone and getting in that way.
