Warning: Hacking Attempt
« on: January 30, 2018, 11:56:20 am »
Today I received 2 emails said that I tried to reset my forum password. I checked the validity of the email, yes they were sent from Lazarus Forum. The IP of the person (or maybe bot) that resetting my password was from Germany, I'm not from Germany.

This mail was sent because the 'forgot password' function has been applied to your account. To set a new password, click the following link:

They were stupid enough to try to login using my ID. I always use passwords more than 10 characters and contain numbers, symbols and both upper and lower cases.

Do you receive such password resetting notification recently?

For your information a good pasword is a password that:
- Contain at least 10 characters
- Has both upper and lower cases
- Has minimal a symbol
