    Password?

    I received an email stating that I need to change my forums password as the account got hacked. I logged in OK with my password but when I go to change it, it says that the (current) password I have entered is not valid.
    So there is /no/ way I can change it. Since I am able to log in and post here it's obvious I have not forgotten my password.

    There is a link to click for "forgot password" but it does nothing other than just go to forums. If a P/W is supposed to be emailed to me, it is not happening.

    Please see this thread and read its intstructions:

    The password of the forum itself doesn't matter any more and is actually disabled. What matters is now you keep your Ubuntu One SSO credentials safe. As long as your SSO account is not compromised, you can securely and automatically login to the forum through the SSO.

    How did you login with your password?
    It's not even possible anymore.

    And besides, after the hack first happened, one of the first things Canonical IS did was to randomize ALL passwords in the forums.
