Default Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

Hello Everyone,

Per the latest announcements we will be resetting everyone’s passwords. Shortly you should be receiving an email directing you how to change your password. It will look like this:

Quote:

Subject: Your new password for *site name*
Dear *username*,

Your password has been reset by an administrator. Your new details are as follows:

Username: *username*

Password: *Randomly generated temp password*

To change your password, please visit this page: *link to password reset edit page from USERCP*

If you suspect this email is a scam, you can confirm the legitimacy of this email by manually navigate to the forum URL yourself and use your new password to log in.

All the best,

Site Name


As you can see it will give you a randomly generated temporary password, as well as telling you where you need to go to updated it accordingly.

If you do not receive this email please go to the contact us page and select Other, and type in Security Password Update Issues

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Obviously one can't remember the new one provided, but the new one I have made to meet the new rules is also difficult.
Seems a bit over the top.

Really?! Must be 10 letters long, must contain an uppercase character, must contain a lower case letter, must contain a number, must contain a symbol....didn't realise I'd signed up to the pentagon!

What next? Blood sample? :P

And the problem is......

I'm sure you would complain if they got hacked and you lost money somewhere..

If you use google you will find how to make a standard password fit the above criteria.
Of course the crackers also know that too.

Ye but it now takes a brute force password program longer because it has more characters to choose from

So if you didn't get the email, you wouldn't be able to log in and find out why you can't log in.
All a bit OTT in my opinion. If this had any connection to finance I would say OK, but it doesn't.
