    Today I received an email from Outpost as follows

    Outpost Users Support Forum - Account Password Vulnerability ‏



    ~Removed private communications per TOS~
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/help/terms



    I've edited the essential information just in case it's legit as it is My username, but that means nothing!!

    What I would do is go to outpost and change your password, but make sure you are on the outpost site just to be sure.

    Done that, and it does appear Legit, However I'm unsure why they sent this email in the first place? I get no messages about vulnerability after logging in with similar or Identical passwords?

    I've had a site decide to check passwords for "low/medium/high" vulnerability and warn me, one even disabled my passwords and I had to contact them to find out why I couldn't log into my e-mail accounts. I had to log in to my server admin account and change the passwords there. But to be safe, don't use a link in the e-mail, use a secure method such as a bookmark or type it in.

    But they seem to have something bolted down too tightly. I just bought OP, liking it, tried to join the OP forum for first time, and their system won't register me. o_O It keeps telling me I'm answering their random (security non-robot) questions wrong or in the wrong format. :confused: Eg, "What is the third character in this sentence?" Unless I don't understand this question, I think the answer is a. (unless of course the the answer is h) That's just one example. I must have tried 20 times with their different random questions, almost at the point of asking for my OP license $$ back, very annoying, and OP itself is running so well. I did send them an email about this. Next is to see what they say and how long it takes them to say it. Is OP known for good support?

    I would forward it to them and ask them directly.

    They have replied to a couple of emails i have sent them.
    Not necessarily the quickest but you should still get a reply.
