Hello Everyone,



Per the latest announcements we will be resetting everyone’s passwords. Shortly you should be receiving an email directing you how to change your password. It will look like this:


Subject: Your new password for *site name*
Dear *username*,
Your password has been reset by an administrator. Your new details are as follows:
Username: *username*
Password: *Randomly generated temp password*
To change your password, please visit this page: *link to password reset edit page from USERCP*
If you suspect this email is a scam, you can confirm the legitimacy of this email by manually navigate to the forum URL yourself and use your new password to log in.
All the best,
Site Name


As you can see it will give you a randomly generated temporary password, as well as telling you where you need to go to updated it accordingly.
If you do not receive this email please go to the contact us page and select Other, and type in Security Password Update Issues
We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

I'll just point out that this email will come from the vsobr.com domain and NOT rollsroyceforums.com. Some people may think that it is a phishing expedition because of this.

That was my first reaction.

This was an utterly unnecessary action and should never, ever, have just been "sprung" on the membership in this way.

This is not a site that most of us who use it deem as "high security" and, in the final analysis, the end user should be able to keep the password they chose until or unless their account is compromised.

This was not handled well - at all.

A third party plugin in our system was used to breach into our system and several accounts were compromised. We're trying to reach out to all our users since not everyone reads these threads or news.
A lot of users use the same password/email combination for all their accounts (including personal), it's better to be on the safe side and have them change their on this forum.

And the way you went about doing this would make any user extremely suspicious that a phishing expedition was underway.

Learn from your mistakes.
