Forum certificate maintenance Completed!

Post by xantia_v6 »

I need to make some configuration changes to this site's security certificate over the next few days.

If all goes well, there will be no impact for users, but there is a small possibility that the reconfiguration will cause some temporary problems, leading to security warnings from browsers.

hi V6, I logged on last night (after a break of a few weeks) and got a warning about my password having been read by something. Today someone tried to break into my faceache account it appears.. is there anything to worry about re. logging in here?

This site does not give warnings about passwords being read. In fact this site does not store user passwords, it stores password hashes which are used to verify the password when you log-in, but the hash cannot be used to steal or reconstruct the actual password.

So I don't think that the message came from here.
