  • Just out of curiosity, is anyone with the list of passwords testing it against CPAN authors with the same or similar username or registered email address to make sure the passwords get changed? It seems like it'd be a good idea to regenerate the passwords or lock the accounts of people who don't change their password and have it published. Or, maybe someone should track their updates until they do.
    • I believe that they are emailing CPAN authors

      (Luckly for me the last time I used PerlMonks I had forgotten my password so my password was set to the default forgotten password email's, but I still think I will go and change many of my passwords)

    • I tested the first few passwords that had @cpan.org email addresses. All of the people at the beginning of the list used their perlmonks password as their PAUSE password. After about three of these, I got depressed and stopped.
    • "the same or similar" is a hard test. Work is being done to try to identify any reused passwords (not limited to the published ones).
