I wasn't notified at all about a password change. Tried logging in once and the system claimed I tried multiple times. Figured I'd reset my password anyway not knowing that this was going on. The failed. I finally used this address to reset it.

There was an announcement on this change, and emails were sent out notifying you that the change had taken place, along with a temporary password.

Attention - Password and Security Update

However, due to the password resets we were performing, several mail providers have throttled our overnight password resets on this community, which caused a delay for members to receive them.

If anyone has not received a password reset as of yet, please request one using the "forgot password" function.

Thanks,
- JB

It's not just this forum.

The same changes have been made on another forum I use.

If more people, like yourself, contributed to the forum, they wouldn't need as many ads.
If the site was owned by a member and not an ad agency i would contribute money. But all youre doing is contributing to their effort to buy up every forum there is. Then they let the forum fall apart because theyre not being moderated. Go vusit the r6 forum. There are random posts all over it in sections it doesnt belong. People have turned the computer help section into a bike tuning section. Because they see computer help and assume its about tuning.

When you see stuff like that, report it. The Forum (this one and the R6) are moderated, but we are all working people that have jobs etc. There is only so much time we can search for discrepancies. So members reporting it when they see it is most helpful.

Thanks! Please try to enjoy the Forum.

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

~Shane
I too also am using a temp password because I was locked out of my account. I did not receive any email that my password was being changed. Even if I did I would of deleted the email thinking it was a scam. The forum should of asked us to go to the site and change our passwords ourselves.

****Today, I got this email, is this true? (copy and pasted below)*****

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notice of Data Breach

You may have heard reports recently about a security issue involving VerticalScope. We would like to make sure you have the facts about what happened, what information was involved, and the steps we are taking to help protect you. VerticalScope owns and operates a number of community websites. You are receiving this email because you are a registered user of the following community website(s) involved in the data breach:
www.r1-forum.com
Digital Home

What Happened?

On June 13, 2016, we became aware that February 2016 data stolen from VerticalScope was being made available online.

What Information Was Involved?

Community member usernames, email addresses, hashed passwords, community userIDS, community website, and the IP address the username originally registered with.

What We Are Doing

We have invalidated passwords of all VerticalScope user accounts. We have posted a site security notification on each site updating users on the potential risk to certain accounts, the password reset and steps we are implementing to improve security. We have implemented stronger password rules (passwords now require a minimum of 10+ characters and a mixture of upper- and lower-case letters, numbers and symbols) along with automated account password expiries to encourage more frequent password changes. We will remind our users to use good password practices (not using the same password for multiple online accounts and using unique strong passwords). We are in the process of implementing additional safeguards to detect, alert and mitigate any future brute force attempts, and have notified our third party vendors that interact with our various forum API's of the February breach to allow their own security teams to investigate. We are continuing our investigation and will be collecting information to provide to the appropriate law enforcement authorities.

VerticalScope is taking steps to strengthen account security. We were already using encrypted passwords and salted hashes to store passwords, and our new password controls are intended to further strengthen user security. We are taking steps to investigate and test new encryption and security technologies to further protect our users.

What You Can Do

To keep your account as safe as possible, we recommend that you regularly change your VerticalScope community password, and that you use a unique password for each of your online accounts. Using the same password for multiple online accounts significantly increases your chances of being compromised. Even though the passwords stolen in February were hashed, we recommend that if you were using (or are currently using) your VerticalScope community password across multiple online accounts, that you change your password for such other online accounts. We encourage you to regularly review your accounts and report any suspicious or unrecognized activity immediately.

For More Information

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Community Management team by email at cmsupport@verticalscope.com or on the website that you frequent. A support thread has been created on each website, and our support teams are on there to help you through the process and answer any questions you may have. A Notice of Data Breach is also available on community websites involved in the data breach.



This email was sent by VerticalScope Inc., 111 Peter Street, Suite 700, Toronto, ON, M5V2H1. If you have any questions regarding the communications you receive from us, please contact us.

2007 Carbon Fiber R1, led turn signal mirrors, Pazzo shorties, Aftermarket headlights, Yoshimura TRC 3/4 Full Exhaust, Renthal grips, Yoshimura bar ends, led signals, homemade phone mount, under tail delete with integrated led tail light, no-cut frame sliders.

The email was sent by us regarding this whole password changing and the reasoning behind it.
