Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Funniest thing is, I tried to change my password from that cluster they sent me, to something else. The screen came up and said my emails didn't match. (there's only one email on the password screen.)

It would not accept the goofy code from the progressive ad for me to go any further.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I never got an email. Nothing in any junk folders.

Just post the email contents here, or is it like pictures and you can't figure out how to post the contents here from one day to the next. Or did you use the contents somewhere else and it won't allow you to post the information here.

Good thing that I like the people here or I wouldn't even bother. It's not just passwords, but being locked out of my account because I can't remember my new password doesn't help either.

Please don't force me to use Facebook to talk to people about stuff...talk about an information hack!

Sorry for the rant...I've had a bad couple of years!

Sounds just like my experience, Mark.....real PITA! I guess I'll just keep doing what I do and if it all falls apart....oh well. When one tries to do what is asked and that fails, makes you wonder.

Please do. Even the UK government advise against it.

You should even revise your enforced-complex-password rule. As per CESG recommendations:

Quote:
Most administrators will force users to change their password at regular intervals, typically every 30, 60 or 90 days. This imposes burdens on the user (who is likely to choose new passwords that are only minor variations of the old) and carries no real benefits as stolen passwords are generally exploited immediately.
Quote:
Traditionally, organisations impose rules on the length and complexity of passwords. However, people then tend to use predictable strategies to generate passwords, so the security benefit is marginal while the user burden is high.
The use of technical controls to defend against automated guessing attacks is far more effective than relying on users to generate (and remember) complex passwords.
For this reason, enforcing the requirement for complex character sets in passwords is not recommended.
As for the article presented in an earlier post which states that you had some passwords encrypted with MD5, I hope this isn't the case anymore, as this is basically the same thing as being written in plain text.

Don't forget that you do not even have a «https» website. Anyone could intercept the communication and could read my password as I log in. So all of this could be in vain. This is the basic of secure login (source 1 & source 2).

Can't imagine WHY the support team is all backed up. I'll bet a lot of people have already forgot their 'new' 10 character min password...

I just had to say it....grr

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Okay...would somebody post the password reset instructions because I never received them in my email, and the help is somewhat limited here. Busy...the enhancements must not be going so well...

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Just changed mine. Go to user CP and click on edit email and password. It does not list the criteria at least it didn't for me.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I did not get any email and when I log out and log in, I get nothing to redirect me to anywhere. It just logs me in. One big advantage to the new system is that it now underlines everything that I type. How cool is that? Ok, now i gotitundercontrol.

Thanx for posting the rules for the new pAssWWord*&^%99

I will try to reset in User CP..
