    Default Password expiration for the forums?

    Anyone else get a msg like this over the weekend?


    Your password is 477 days old, and has therefore expired.

    Please change your password using this page.

    800 some accounts with weak passwords were compromised this past weekend and sent tons of spam messages to users. We set a 365 day password expiry period and expired all compromised accounts.

    Just because you got the message didn't mean that your account was compromised. Just that you hadn't changed your password in a year!

    Any chance you could let those users whose accounts were compromised know?

    You're on the safe list. If your password was ridiculously simple it got cracked.
