  • My password has been comprimised


    I looked at my site a few hours ago and noticed that my user (with admin permissions) had made a post, but it wasn't me! The post was not offensive, almost sounded like something that I might say.. just that I didn't.

    The password I had being using is the same one I use for all forum sites, so I guess it's possible that someone got a hold of it... the first thing I did was change my password to a longer and unique password.

    Next I checked out the IP of that post, and confirmed that it was in Australia (where most of my users are) - though I am in the UK so it couldn't have been me not logging out or anything.

    Is there any way to check the IP against other users of my site to see if I can track down the culprit?
