How to change your forum password | Leaked passwords

Postby Reviso » 4 months 13 hours ago (Fri Feb 12, 2021 1:15 pm)

Sorry if it is not the good place, but there was recently a massive leak of passwords linked to email addresses.
Here is something about this (sorry, it is in French) :

Is it possible to change your password on Codoh forum ?

You should be able to change it here: ucp.php?i=ucp_profile&mode=reg_details

If that does not work you can PM me the password you would like to use instead.

Also on this subject, there is another website that you can input your email address into that will tell you if it was involved in a data breach: https://haveibeenpwned.com/

The article says you can check this tool to see if your email has been leaked

https://cybernews.com/personal-data-leak-check/

By the way, most emails have a feature where you can check the IP addresses of whoever logged into the account, so you can see if someone else is accessing it.
"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance -- that principle is contempt prior to investigation."
