in thread Requiring old password in order to change your password

Thanks, that's one step in the right direction. Additionally, it would be great to consider (optionally) allowing https for all communications (not just logins) in your on-going security review of the site. Some claim SSL/TLS is not computationally expensive any more but that is of course subject to debate.

Https everywhere is getting a lot of traction and the number of sites that supports https "all the way" is large and growing. It would be great to add perlmonks.org to the list:

    Yes, allowing https always is on the list after web server performance mitigation is sustained.
