Worked for me...
im not getting anny emails
PM W1zz or maybe a supermod, Morg. Not sure who can all do that, but regular mods cannot.
i did he told me to sheck my spam filters i have no idea where they are..
PW reset, thank you for the heads up on this.
Now to ask a few questions...
1) Wizz, I know what Hashed and Salted means, but maybe you could enlighten us a bit more?
What methods were used? A properly salted and hashed password table will be pretty much useless to hackers correct?
2) You mention "upgrading" to banking grade security. What grade was the security that got hacked then? Grade school basic programming?
3) Why is it that sites always wait till they are hacked then say ZOMG we better upgrade. Would it be best to wait till after I jump from an airplane to make sure I have a proper parachute?
Not trying to flame mind you, but this is quite a pisser...
all done and dusted, thanks.
Password reset, i'm kind of glad i only use a very weak, memorable, generic password for non-sensitive web sites. I try to use stronger individual passwords to any sites that can cause me damage if hacked, just in case any of the non-essential ones do.
Ahhhh, that's why I couldn't log in...
Thanks for the heads up. Going to change it to a different password now instead of back to my old one
Still trying to work out why anyone would want to hack TPU (apart from access to user emails/passwords, personal details etc) What has TPU ever done
Updated, and went to 8-characters with alphanumeric and capitals.
This means they have our registration emails as well? Sigh...
Thanks for the heads up !!! But as stated b4 should we be concerned about out changing our email address ?? Thx keep use in the loop wizzard
Maybe have email addresses but not passwords; as long as you used a different password for TPU than your email account. I didn't use this password for anything else incredibly important.
da*n it. first it was Nvidia forums forced me to change password and now this.
I'm already having trouble remembering the 15 or so passwords for different sites.
Pencil and a big chief tablet.
I find Keepass works great, You just need to remember 1 strong password and backup the database file in a couple of places.
Well shit! Now I have to change the password for all the sites I go too... Errr wait I only go to TechPowerup!... hehehe Good catch guys!
TPU password change done!
I also change my email password it didn't work anymore but i think it was more i who forgot the password then anything else?
I think last time i log on to this email was like a year ago lol! (rarely go see my emails specially this one)
Heheh, enjoyed the clip, Queen is classic!
thanks for rapid recovery of TPU
after read this
its kinda nice to have TPU back and for all the person in TPU that bring this forum back to normal again
that's why I can't access TPU forum this morning...
I've reset my password
someone hacked a place i modded at and plastered spam all over ,
so i posted a message back where they said they were from and told them that we were going to sue them for malicious damage ,
i wish i could get hold of their pc
and in answer to why ,well because they are idiots:shadedshu
wizz take the hacker to court
and take e'm to the cleaners
that'd teach e'm
if you use msn ,sometimes it can see techPowerUp.com as spam ,(just look in your junk folder)
assuming you have a message from w1zz ,put a tick in the check-box next to the techPowerUp message ,and press the Not junk link above that mail
and that should stop any future messages from here being seen as spam
i mis my account... there are no tpu mails in my junk mail, only mails i got from tpu is the ones from wizzard not the password recovery
what is the email adres used by password recovery?
yay found the spam filters
