    I'm having a problem here. For many times, I've been receiving instruction/confirmation of resetting password which I don't remember doing. Can anybody who knows the login name just do a quick visit to cpanel login and simply key in the login name and reset password?

    This is the scenario :

    When somebody visit "http://(myaccount)/cpanel" - a box will appear prompting to enter login name and password. If this somebody just click 'Cancel' - it will go to : "http://(myaccount)/cpanel:2082" - when this happened, if this somebody click on the bottom message that says "If you have lost your password, you can reset it by Clicking Here" - will the password be resetted?

    I'm really annoyed to have to change password over and over again. Is there a way, I can trace the IP address/server name (ban them or report to the authorities) from where the request have been made from or perhaps cpanel might have a way that - only during the administrator login in - the request to reset the password can be made.

    Please help. I'm a newbie! :mad:
