    I don't see how that link can do that - it's for confirming your email is valid. It doesn't touch passwords at all.

    Additionally, the link can only work once, and only for the user ID specified in the URL.

    Mike's right, the link simply does not and can not do what you describe.

    Thanks, being an admin, I didn't dare click on it.. but the user base was going nuts.

    Appreciate it and all the work you both do.

    Can't control those who assume incorrectly :)
    If they follow the link and the "hacker" gets the password, something else is going on that has nothing to do with xenforo's core product.

    Are you sure that's the link and not just a masquerade?

    www.microsoft.com <- google
