Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

Hmm, ok, I should say some of the time it prompts you. I was forced to do it on my personal forums on a couple of them. Maybe I've figured out the source of the confusion. When some users try to login the first time after phpBB2 to phpBB3 upgrade, they get an error message that the system couldn't ...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

There's a little point I'd like to be totally clear about. In the original "Downtime and Server Compromise" post at http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=29973 phpBB3 is set to convert phpBB2 hashes to the new phpBB3 standard during the first user login. Many of the later posts suggest...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

I would, but that doesn't help me determine if a password I use on another site might have been compromised, since I can't remember which password it was I had here. I need to know which password I was using to know if it was one that I use elsewhere. :) -of course, that's only if I haven't logged ...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

If you forgot your password you should be able to use the "I forgot my password" link on login, which would send you an email to reset your password. I'm not sure if you meant me or someone else, but I'll answer incase you were refering to me. :) I would, but that doesn't help me determine if a pas...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

Could, perhaps, there be an automated system that handled that? Something like: -E-mail goes out informing everyone who was comprimised. -Go to website to get md5, asks you to enter your e-mail address. -Confirmation code is sent to e-mail addresss. -Enter confirmation code... get md5 hash. Normally...

Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

Howdy, First off I'd like to say that I'm sorry for the frustrations phpbb is experiencing, and I hope you're all not pulling out your hair (my host was hacked once, and despite having a small site it took me hours upon hours to set everything right again...). :shock: I have a pair of requests: 1. C...
