For several days in early December 2004, all Mission.net mission alumni web sites (including the RRM site) were unavailable while the Mission.net team made necessary repairs and upgrades to the system. We discovered security-related issues when unauthorized individuals recently attempted to access some administrative functions of Mission.net.
Because usernames and passwords may have been stolen, and to improve our ability to maintain the security of personal information, the Mission.net team has upgraded a number of the "behind-the-scenes" functions of the system. This is so that future attempts by unauthorized persons to access administrative areas will be unsuccessful.
Because of this upgrade, the next time you log in to your mission's alumni site, you will need to reset your password. It is very simple to do this:
Go to your profile at our alumni site:
a) Click on "Alumni" in the navigation list on the left.
b) Find your profile and open it.
Click "Edit Profile", then click the "Request Password" link on the login form. The system will generate a temporary password and send it to you via e-mail. Every time you click the link a new password will be generated so, please only click the link once. It may take up to an hour for the password to be delivered to your email box (but that time generally will be much shorter).
NOTE: If your email address has been removed from the system (because the system deemed it invalid because of bounced messages), a form will appear. Fill out the form, INCLUDING YOUR NEW VALID EMAIL ADDRESS, and I will have the system send your new password to your listed e-mail address as soon as possible.
- Once you receive the email containing your temporary password, please log into your profile immediately and change the password to something you will be able to remember. For security reasons, our system now requires passwords to have at least 6 characters, and must contain at least one alphabetical character and one numerical character or one or more of these non-traditional characters: ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ).
If you have questions or problems, please let me know.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Security threats are always changing. Our team of dedicated volunteers is doing its best to stay ahead of them. To help Mission.net provide quality services, please consider donating or volunteering:
