Exclamation Attention - Password and Security Update

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:

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.

You should have the website host change the site to only allow/support HTTPS:// so that individuals credentials are encrypted when they login.

Hey there,

The site is as secure as it's ever been. There is an extra layer of security that is getting added in the near future that will make that warning go away.

Adding Https to the site has always been on the "to-do" list, but it's being pumped up in priority, mostly to keep the site's reputation as a safe place.

We have a very large network and few other company-wide rollouts in progress right now.

We don't have an exact ETA for this site but we are currently testing this on a few of our sites.

We're just winding down the bugs and preventing functions from breaking at the moment.
