Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

My password required a reset every 180 days for as long as I can remember, no big deal really. Just did it and went on.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I have about 13 passwords between work and personal accounts. It seems like none of them can be the same. It is no big deal for you retired people to keep your two passwords updated. I sure hope you keep my car hobby info from getting hacked. Tell me how to delete my account. I will just read and not post.

Got a good laugh out of both you guys, no harm, no foul. I thought Dave's first post was hilarious and Dean's response was a good friendly poke, nothin' more. Personally, I'm "liking" the hell out of this thread so far!

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

The irony in this is that the sites that need to be secure won't allow my simple password that I use here. Like Dave Birdwell, I've used the same password here since they were required - and there didn't use to even be any registration. If my account here is hacked it means nothing to me. But our comfort and convenience of participating here means nothing to people who are making decisions without our input.

Fwiw I participate in 6 Autoguide forums. Last night one of them just logged everyone out and sent them new temporary passwords.

Really? Give me your pass word and let's have some fun? Now don't get me wrong, don't want "your comfort and convenience" to be hindered with a once a year update. Good Gawd!

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Nothing that was recently done caused the leak. As I said, it happened to a 3rd party plugin provider and it occurred back in February, though we were only made aware of it earlier this week.

We can revisit the yearly password expiration if it proves to be more of a hassle then is worth. Site vandalism is also a concern though usually it's more of an annoyance then anything, it's a preventable one.

having the same username/password on hobby type sites and on financial sites is just asking for it. Nothing new here.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

The whole changing password thing isn't a big deal if you just go to one or two sites. It becomes a problem when you visit multiple sites for both work and play.

I am a design engineer who goes to multiple commercial manufacturer sites on a daily basis to download their products to use on our machines.

First off you are required to register on these commercial sites to be able to download their product and all require a password. Right now, most only require a simple password, but some are changing over and going to require you to use a more complex password, which mixes things up a bit.

I used to use the same password for all of the work and play sites because I am not smart enough to remember different passwords for each and every site I've ever registered on and I am not sure anyone else is either. Commercial sites I use for work required my works physical address and work "E" mail address, but nothing personal. The funny thing is, the car sites and most other hobby forums require your birthdate and location which allows hackers to come closer to getting more personal info from you. Some of the forums brought this upon themselves.

Like Tom and Dave, it wouldn't mean much to me if someone hacked my TC account because I use separate "E mail accounts for personal, Ebay, Work and forums. Don't get me wrong, it would be a headache, but not the end of the world and I'd just lose "E" mails which probably should have been deleted 5 years ago

The thing is, where do we store all of the new passwords? Not on a computer, I hope. I am sure everyone didn't register on all of their hobby or work forums on the same day. So, every 365 days you are required to change your password on a forum. Lets say I am registered on 30 different forums/sites for both work and play (actually more). This means I will be changing some password every 10 days or less. Some sites require a 'special character' while some don't allow them at all.

Most everyone are registered and permanently logged onto several sites, but visit just a couple on a daily basis. Once the new password requirements begin kicking in for these sites, I think you'll be seeing fewer registered users visiting these types of sites. While I am registered and logged into the Yellow Bullet forum, I don't post on there very often. I'll now just go to the forum to read or look for things without logging in anymore.

Once hobby sites begin making things too difficult for people log into or even visit a site, the general public will not even bother to see what you have to offer. The same goes for the owners of this site deciding they can 'automatically' charge your card when it is time to renew, without asking first. I used to be a paid member, but after they tried to take money from me without permission, I feel the morals of the company (not members) aren't inline with mine. I would never, ever reach into someones pocket without permission....

Just my .02...grr

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Is the explaination notice not showing up at the top of each page?

Here it is for those not seeing it:

Quote:
Hello Everyone, We wanted to give you an update on the reset password emails that went out the other day. Due to the high volume of emails going out and some service providers blocking them as spam, users have either been getting them late, or not at all. It may have been moved to your spam folder, check to see if it is located there. If you have not received your password reset email please use the password reset function “forgot password”. These emails will go through a paid provider and should show up instantly. To do so just go to log in >> once it redirects you click forgot password >> follow the steps provided. If you do not remember the email address associated with your account you can use the Contact Us tab at the bottom of the page to email us for assistance. Please select the “other” option and add subject “security password issues” We apologize for any disruption this has caused to your forum experience.Original post for reference : https://www.chevelles.com/forums/67-c...ty-update.html
