Hi
FYI
On version 7.5.5
One of my moderators reported below, I have personally seen once before a few years ago that I had a password same as him 123456789123456789
Don't know where it came from but I changed it. ruffly same story.
see the members feedback below it was today or yesterday

Quote
I had entered the preferences page to update some
Of my other options, in the password section was a series of dots, I just ignored them. When I saved the changes I made
My phone asked if I wanted to update the password, so I clicked yes. When I tried to login on my laptop with my normal password it wouldn’t do so. So I looked on my phone for the new saved password which had changed to 123456789123456789, logged in and then updated
My password with one I would want to use.

I’ve updated my preferences a few times and this has never happened before.

123456789123456789 is simply a placeholder on the changebasic and editbasic pages for the password field so that it appears populated; the changebasic and editbasic script pages ignore the password field when this value is present.

Code
	if ($ChosenPassword != "123456789123456789") {
		$changepassword = 1;
		$ChosenPassword = md5($ChosenPassword);
	}

It is odd that the system allowed the page to process the password change to this value as it's specifically coded to ignore that value.

This sounds like the password manager in your device/browser is asking if you wanted to update your stored password with the default pseudo password used in the form.

You had not changed the password form entry field, but you choose to allow your password manager to update.

Your password manager was not intelligent enough to notice that the form was pre-populated with a pseudo value. Your password manager only looked at what it had stored, and what the page was displaying, rather than looking to see if you actually changed values within the field.

By blindly clicking through your password manager's prompt and choosing "Yes. Please update the stored password.", it did exactly that. Your password manager updated the stored password, even though you never updated it with UBB.threads.
