Default 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

This sure seems to have kicked traffic in the nuts. It was slow before but now it's as if many never returned.

We are working on responding to members who have had issues logging with their accounts, or adjusting to the password resets.
We have a huge backlog since June, and have all hands on deck working towards fixing this.

Thank for your patience guys.

Richard.

Hopefully not, but if you know of any users who are still having a hard time getting online please let us know. We're caught up with any back log that was generated because of the breach but we're always eager to catch anyone who may have slipped through the cracks.
