Subject: Important information about your UKreg account
We are writing to inform you that we have recently discovered evidence of a network intrusion involving a Fasthosts server. We have reason to believe that the intruder has gained access to our internal systems, and that this may have in turn given them access to your username and some service passwords.

We have since closed the vulnerability through which access was gained, and have taken steps to ensure that this cannot happen again.
We therefore recommend, as a precaution, that you now change the control panel login password on your account.

This can be changed within your control panel and further details on how to change your password can also be found in the support section of our website.

We strongly recommend that you choose a secure password so that it cannot easily be guessed. The password should include the following:

  • It should be a minimum of 8 characters long
  • It should contain an upper case and a lower case letter
  • It should also contain at least one number (numeric)

We recognise that this may cause some inconvenience and concern, and for that we sincerely apologise. Please be assured that your account security is extremely important to us, and we have taken every step possible to secure your information against any future intrusion attempts.
