I think frequent password changes are needed if you want to keep your account safe.
Even workplaces require you to change them every 3 months so why not here? Roll Eyes

The reason workplaces require you to do that is because they usually run Windows, and compromising a Windows system is as easy as plugging a USB into the machine, lol.

Don't change it too often. The more paranoid members on the dt list might mark your account as sold or hacked

So? Let them keep complaining about that, with or without evidence, that claim has no bearing on your Bitcointalk account

Incapsula was willing to do a special deal, but their price was ridiculous.

Have you checked recently? If it has been a while it might be worth asking again.

I've fiddled around with nginx more recently at my day job, but it sounds like if you are talking firewall you are looking for maybe dedicated hardware to do this or provide a global-based service for it. I know nginx recently added UDP load balancing, but I'm not sure if TCP load balancing would work or stop TCP-SYN flooding or half-open attacks if that's what you're mostly having problems with.

Additionally you can adjust settings like net.ipv4.tcp_synack_retries and net.ipv4.tcp_syn_retries or even net.ipv4.tcp_fin_timeout on the firewall or reverse proxy if you haven't already.

Never use same password in every website as now a days website database is not safe and it'll never be. I've lost my social network accounts and my personal email account too because I was using same password on every website just keep changing it every months for your important accounts.

I've read somewhere yahoo's database was leaked too recently then when I tried to login they locked it and asked me too verify security questions and for cell number. So yeah it's good practice to change your passwords frequently.

Changing the password isn't hard, so why not?
Yes I agree it  isn't hard but remembering it is
@Sharma. Use Keepass. You can download it here http://keepass.info/

It is what I use and it makes password management easier. You passwords will also be harder to crack since they look something like "SDFT%$EW^Y%ETGYBDE#$^^&$"
Thanks I will download it.Which version you recommend Classic Edition
KeePass 1.31 or Professional Edition
KeePass 2.34?

I am not an expert but all I understand is that DDOS is not hacking it only makes website unavailable by sending huge traffic.The forum is experiencing ddos frequently and It was unavailable yesterday also.I am concerned and want to know if there is a need to change our account password?
Im not that expert too, when it comes to securing website but im pretty sure that no one is safe our technology are always upgrading and i read that forum was leaked on dark net and it is in for sale and there are accouts thats dead already and comming back and some of them are requesting loan. I already done changing my email and password i always update my password everyweek

Probably yes you can change your password in profile > and go to account related settings. Put your current password and create new password and verify it. And click SAVE. This is for your security is worried in your account I mean if anyone know your account. Just change it before its too late.

I don't know im not that expert too , and i think all about DDOS is sending pockets where the server can't handle that then it will take down the server so the forum will not available temporary we can see that they trying to send huge traffic everyday are they curious about bitcoin talk? i think we are safe because theymos are doing everything he can.

I noticed that changing your password lead to some people here thinking your account was sold, but I still think you should do it. Not only here, but with every important account you own. change your passwords frequently and when possible, activate 2FA. sadly, we don't have that option here yet, which makes changing your password even more important. and of course, never use the same password with different accounts.

No if they were curious, they wont be sending automated traffic.Moreover we are not some secret cult or society we are open to all community and if anyone is curious and wants to learn, he/she can simply join bitcointalk.org
