Sometime overnight my password stopped working for this pool. I had it saved in my browser and this morning (UK time) it was no longer valid (where it was last night). I tried to enter it manually and got the smae result. I thought maybe I had saved it/remembered it wrong until another pool member came into IRC to report the same problem - his password stopped working overnight
To be a bit safe, I then tried multiple logins with the incorrect password until the server reported my account was locked.
I dont know if there is a security issue or a glitch. However I have checked this end and there is no malware.

*edit* Aexoden reports his works fine. Hopefully the problem is just something silly and nothing to worry about
[13:31] <@Aexoden> My login works fine, so if something's wrong, it seems to be either with your account or the browser saved it wrong or something. You'll have to wait for BurningToad I guess. Try deleting your cookies from arsbitcoin.com and trying again. Well, unless your account is locked now.
