A few weeks ago, I wrote about a weak password hash algorythm.
Now it happend.
A few days ago, SHA-1 was proven as “broken”. and MD5 is allready easy to crack.
I wrote a mass email to everyone, asking to change your password. Many accounts are still using the old and weak algorythm. In the last days I recognized a higher rate of “wrong” login tries. – Somone tries to break into email accounts.
Since I don’t want a hacked email account on my server which people can use to send spam, I deactivated all email accounts with an old password algorythm.
So if you can’t login to your email account, don’t worry. Your email account is still there, but it is inactive. To gain access again, please create a ticket and provide your email address, AND the address you originally requested your email with or anything else to prove you are the legit account owner.
For example a screenshot of the configured email account in your email client or phone.
