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

Community Management

So that expiry nonsense just means that we all just append the year to our usual password. Idiots.

Just spent a nice 30 minutes trying to overide a password Manager to make these changes Might be best to send the Email Out before the changes not after Rant over

Hey all

If your previous passwords met the new requirements, you will be able to update your password to that again. Once the year is up however, you will no longer be able to use this password as you cannot repeat them.

dont know if this has been mentioned, but 'human verification' does not show anything to copy using chrome browser, windows7.

internet explorer works fine though.

Putting an ad in your captcha is despicable
