    If you choose not to decide, you have still made a decision!

    ... site message requesting a password change ...

    Not sure what you mean by 'site message', I would expect a direct PM from 'Admin' if a genuine personal issue or for 'Admin' to put a general notice here on the 'Admin' News and Announcements thread.  :084: :027:

    There's been no "data leak" !  :001:

    Was this by email ? Are you sure this wasn't just a normal password reset email ?

    Anyway cut and paste what you have and send it by pm to me (don't post it).

    Update

    From what the OP said this appears to be some sort of browser hyjack (or malware) which was locallised on his PC/device.

    Nothing to do with the site  :038:

    Chrome warns you if any passwords you use have been compromised in data breaches and suggests changing them.

    It does, but we have not had a data breach !  :001:

    All forum passwords are encrypted, even I can't see them. So even if the data was "out there" then someone would need to "crack" the passwords. We are not a bank, it's just a forum ! All members are anonymous anyway so the value of going through all that trouble would be negliable and pretty pointless.

    Nevertheless, probably good practice to frequently change your passwords on all sites that you visit. Unfortunately most people don't do that, or worse still they use the same username/password combination on all of them  :138:
