Reset Password request fromDNF?

Anyone else log on to DNF today and asked to reset their password?
Maybe a planned coincidence given what happened there.
Also, no mention or explanation of what occurred, or the fact that the site has been secured.

Changed mine as soon as they were back on line without any prompting - you don't wait after that sort of security breach.

Re: Reset Password request fromDNF?

This blog say the hacker was 16 years old...
According to article, one of his demands was removal of legal section in forum.
I just checked and this section was replaced with a new section called "Domain Lawyers" so maybe something to it.

This just shows Adam has no even the minimum concept of network security.

The server and firewall should be freshly set up, BUT not with the hecker's help.
