Change Multiple Account Passwords

One of our dedicated servers was hacked after cPanel's support server was compromised:


"As mentioned in our email sent to cPanel Server

Administrators who’ve opened a ticket with us in the past 6 months, on February

21 we discovered that one of the proxy servers we utilize in the technical

support department had been compromised. The cPanel Security Team’s

investigation into this matter is ongoing."


Now we need to change the password of all 600 account on the server and a function that allows you to change all at one time would be really helpful...

The "Force Password Change" function in WHM allows you to force a user to change their password upon logging in. While this doesn't change all the passwords at once for you this does force your users to change them themselves, saving the need to provide them their new passwords via a potentially insecure method, and may be useful in the interim. You can read more about this function at http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/WHMDocs/ForcePasswordChange
