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

Kind of off topic in a way but, I'm also in the Shadow Forum and they've had the same issues as the one's here as far as the breach, Problem is, I didn't receive an email with the new temporary password so I cannot sign on any longer. I believe this forum and that one are run by the same people, is there any way anyone here can contact them about this problem, as I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Appreciate any help if possible that can be given on this.

The password I received didn't work the first time here.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Everything worked well on my end.
I guess it's pot luck.

The new password I received for here worked fine, I just never received an email from the Shadow Forum with one.

How do we change the new password to something we can remember? I can't find the option to change my password. Does anyone have step by step instructions?

Just found the answer to my question:

User CP (top right)

Settings and options (left side)

Edit email and password

I am glad to hear it wasn't just me. Sad to hear that it happened to more than just myself though.
