We love that you're up on security and checking on an email you received asking you to change your password immediately. We stay up on security as well, which is why we alert individuals whose account may be at risk. As long as the message is coming from Support@acloud.guru, it is a legitimate message for your protection!
1. Stay calm, your A Cloud Guru account is fine!
Your A Cloud Guru account is not compromised. However, we're working to keep it that way! We were alerted that your login information on our site was also used on another site that was in fact compromised. We work to get ahead of potential issues and alert you to change your password to ensure it's secure.
2. Change your password.
You can change your password through the email or directly on our site by following this article.
Remember to make the new password a strong one and try to reduce reusing passwords multiple times from other sites.
3. There are steps to reduce issues in the future.
Our 3rd party detection service, Auth0, has some wonderful tips and tricks here.
Thank you again for staying so on top of your accounts and security by doing your due diligence in verifying the email. Very cool, Guru! Your account will stay secure this way.
