The password reminder problem is now sorted
« on: November 10, 2012, 04:00:44 PM »
We have had a lot of members reporting attempts by outsiders to obtain their password, thereby resulting in them being sent multiple 'password reminder' emails.

I have now taken steps to stop this problem at its source. Members should experience no further problems. If any of you are still getting this please let me know.

 :( The problem is still not resolved with me I have just switched on to my email account just a few moments ago and someone from DS Admin according to the email has sent me 8 of these misleading messages so far,?

I will just see how many more of these arrive before I start asking questions?

Yip Joe,

The problem has been resolved literally in the last hour. So any still in the system would have come through to you.

We know now that it is someone out to cause as much mischief as possible. Maybe they dont have TV - or anything interesting to do.  ::)

Thanks very much for letting us know though.

It's all quite sad.  Doesn't do the detecting world any good and in fact, makes us all look like petty treasure hunters.  Whoever is doing it is doing it out of spite because they are either disgruntled, affiliated to another club/forum or keen for a visit from the police.  I am new to this hobby and the last few months have been an eye-opener!!   :o :o :o

Absolutely illegal.

Its theft of data if they did access the account and if we ever prove who did it, the police would be informed immediately.

I take it theres been no more new incidents of the password email resets happening. Its started happening on DW now so I guess DS's door has been firmly shut to this annoyance :)
