I’m about to reset your password!

As part of the effort to stop the hacking of the site, I'm about to reset everyone's passwords. My apologies, but it looks like that might be where the problem is happening so this is one way to combat it.

Update: I just completed the reset. You should get your new auto-generated random password by email. If you don't have it, check your spam folder, it might be in there. Or, you can go directly to http://www.heromachine.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword to reset it manually with either your site username or registered email address.

My apologies for the irritation, believe me, I'm feeling it too.

    I checked my email, but I didn’t see anything regarding my password.

    i got nothing in my email

  4. Avatar FRM says:

    okay, so even when i hit the “forgot your password” button, i get no email.

  5. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    If you don’t see it in your mail, then the odds are it got sent to the spam filter either by your email program or your ISP.

    FRM and Linea24, I’ve manually reset yours again, and emailed them to you from my afdstudios@gmail.com account.

    I haven’t had any e-mail from here, and my old password still seems to work fine. Which is fine, but I thought I’d let you know in case there’s something funny with the password reset system.

    I didn’t see the hacked page, but then I always go straight to the site – I’ve bookmarked the address.

    Exactly the same for me. No email, spam or otherwise, but my current password still works.

    Weird. I downloaded a plugin that resets them all, maybe it doesn’t work right …

    Ah, I was wondering why my password wasn’t working (I’ve been away from the site for a couple of days due to spotty internet, so I didn’t catch the blog post). All fine, though, and I changed it to something I can remember.

    Maybe it just takes time to get through all the emails. I’ll give it a little while and get back to you.

    I haven’t received an email and when I tried to reset it, I still did not receive an email.

  13. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    I went ahead and reset yours manually, Vampyrist, you should have a message from AFDStudios@gmail.com with the new one. Which you should change to something you can remember asap.

    If you didn’t get that one either, email me directly.

    Oops. I posted needlessly about the reset. (Blog is usually my last stop.) Ignore that. . . my email is slow to receive and never sorts right. Good luck with ongoing security.
