    Yes now they can use password1. Then password2. Then password3.

    Forcing members to use more complex passwords is what forces members to use more complex passwords, making us change it every year does not. *

    BCSB is not important enough for me to remember the password for; sites like this I just save them all to my browser. If anyone steals my laptop, ensuring the data integrity of this forum will be very low on my list.

    This site seems like it's lost a large amount of audience already , forcing password changes will only make it worse imo .

    Funny story. I worked at a place with a 90 day password reset policy. I left the place with a password of Password#13 after a little more than three years. No one figured out my previous 12 passwords, so that strategy is validated and secure. I am glad I left that place.

    Does this new policy have anything to do with - http://jalopnik.com/45-million-accou...r-f-1782030203 ?

    hey all,

    A good piece of advice, to help in remembering the more complex password, is to do a phrase instead of just randomly adding in the extra requirements.

    Example: BoiledCabbageis#1!

    That will stick in your in your mind better.

    There has been numerous large breaches lately on almost a daily basis.. anyone who happens to cycle passwords between diff sites or uses the same password on another site or multiples is at high risk. i know it sounds stupid but people actually do this..

    so if we change our password now, are we going to have to change it again on the forced reset?

    To those resistant to this change, you should learn to accept this. It's going to happen more and more. Heck, I even change my bank and credit card pins every 6 months, especially after major shopping holidays.

    Like Mark Zuckerberg. That's gotta be embarrassing, but also a great public reminder to not reuse passwords.*

    The article fails to mention that the breach was for a third party plugin. This breach is on countless sites across the internet and not just limited to ours.

    Their system was compromised and they grabbed user data for us and thousands of others. We cleared our part of the breach and went this route to further security. This is also in place as many members on the internet use the same or similar passwords across all things they use.

    These tech blogs don't ever get the full story, there just have hearsay and run with and embellish it.

    We cannot go into detail at the moment as it is being dealt with on a legal level.

    I like to rotate my personal ones every few months. Mind you I don't have any money in the bank to steal

    It is a good policy to have, as I have known many people who use 1 password for all things. Their eyes get opened pretty quickly after a breach of their information.

    Soooo, how long had you known this site was compromised and your member's information stolen before you decided to let us know about it?
