FreelanceSwitch Job Board / Forums Passwords Reset
In light of the recent Tuts+ Premium compromise, we’ve been auditing our systems to make sure they all have good practices around account and password storage. Because our FreelanceSwitch system was connected to an older version of BBPress, it was storing some accounts using a simple hash (not a good practice). Newer accounts, and ones which have had a password reset in recent times, had better security (a better hash, and a per user salt).
So to be certain that everyone is up to date, we have reset all user passwords on the job board and forums. Users will need to update their password using the Reset Password Form.
To be clear, this is just a precaution to improve general security on FreelanceSwitch.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience this will cause users. If you have any questions or run into any problems, don’t hesitate to contact Support.
