WHo is the Website admin?

Post by cappy2112 » Wed Sep 30, 2009 5:33 am

Do you guys know your forum software emails out the users password, when the account is first created?

If any malware/vuris/trojan was to get onto my system, it would be easy to sniff through my email looking for the word PASSWORD and the real password.

What's the point of having passwords at all, if you're going to make it easy for anyone to find them???

I can't believe you guys let this happen. This is really bad.

Hi cappy,

thanks for reporting this as an issue. I agree, it is bad and unnecessary. We'll fix that. However, to really make a difference, it would be worthwhile discussing it with the makers of this standard forum software:

Thanks,
Florian
