Password reset by administrator?

I just received an email saying that my password was reset by an administrator, both for this forum and for HKPro.com.

Is it legit? If so, what is the purpose?

Maybe a database leak and they are doing it as a security precaution?

EDIT:

Same thing happened to me. Was kinda wondering what was going on. I ended up using the new pw and then changing it to a new PW that I made up. Did everyone have their PW changed by the Adm?

I wish that the Adm would tell us if this is legit or if there is a problem with the data base.

I just hope that I can log back into the site after I log out tonight.

I've been asked twice now to present a new password. At least one longtime member had his name changed, in addition to his password. Something doesn't seem right, or at least it's not going well. PM has been sent to the new guys for an explanation. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, we've been talking about this here:
