Has your Fluther password ever been reset on you?

Asked by Breefield (2733points) June 29th, 2008

I didn’t request it to be, which scares me! Someone is trying to get into my account mayhaps?

Never happened to me, but this Q makes me think iwamoto isn’t in your fluther?

They did it to me too. And that is actually good since I didn’t know my old one. My old one is still working in this session but I tried in Safari old my old one didn’t work.

It looks like buggy code. the email pointed me to the mobile site.

Breefield's avatar

Yeah, which concerned me because the mobile version of the site I use is not so I wasn’t sure if I had just given my password to phishers. Would be nice if Ben or Andrew let in some insight on this :D

If you got to the normal fluther site then press the fluther logo it brings you to (while on an iPhone/ iPod). Its just a new URL for the same site.

Might it have anything to do with MyFluther, as mentioned in the podcast? Maybe the certain people they are starting it with are being sent emails.

jrpowell's avatar

I think someone might have put a def email_everyone_password(): into the code.

It just seems like a glitch in the code.

I’ve never ever had anything like that happen nor any bad experience with Fluther. I can only sing it’s praises…

[Fluther Moderator:] Don’t worry guys, is just a shortened version of the normal iPhone site URL. Things have been changing over the past few days, and there may have been a couple accounts issues. I’ll forward this complaint on and see if someone upstairs can shed some light on this.

This was not a code issue, but a malicious user. We waited to chime in because we wanted to catch the user in the act (which we did!). Password resetting has been temporarily disabled while we make a more secure long-term fix.

eambos's avatar

Wow. Good job in catching him/her. Now we are all saved!

I would’ve said it’s zack, but this is far too complex for the likes of him.

cheebdragon's avatar

It was Zack, it really wasnt very complex, all he had to do was hit the forgot password button and type in any username and the password would reset. At least, i think that was the conclusion everyone came to in the watering hole, a few nights ago…...right, ben?

eambos's avatar

Oh, so it was just a nuisance, not someone trying to steal passwords. I had thought that it was some attempt to steal the users files. I guess it was just to annoy them.

cheebdragon's avatar

Typical Zack…....he must not have any friends to play with…...its kinda sad..

eambos's avatar

Naaaa. Zack’s a cool kid. Everyone wants to be his friend. ~
