    RETRIEVE old password on Ubuntu forums, NOT RESET

    NOTE: I created this new account (dilbert2)
    to post this message. BUT: My problem is
    with my old Ubuntu forums account.

    You alerted me saying:

    "The Ubuntu forums software was compromised by
    an external attacker. As a result, the attacker
    has gained access to read your username, email
    address and an encrypted copy of your password
    from the forum database."

    I do not recall which password I used for my
    old forums account.

    However, I need to RETRIEVE the old password,
    NOT RESET it (!!!) to make sure I reset this
    password on other accounts for security reasons.

    How do I RETRIEVE my old password on Ubuntu forums,
    NOT RESET it?

    The forums were re-installed from scratch.
    ALL passwords were randomized.
    The old passwords are gone.
