Spurious WordPress user password reset emails

Gerald Thulbourn, WebSanity Internet Marketing, HuntingdonHave you received an unexpected “your password has been reset” email from WordPress recently? It isn’t just you…

Seems to be an issue with WordPress 4.3. Hopefully it might be fixed in the latest 4.3.1 update but there were claims that this was an issue with plugins misinterpreting something that WP has changed.

Either way – don’t be too worried that somebody is trying to hack your site, but do ensure that you update WordPress and all plugins if you get this problem (and keep on top of that for a while just in case plugin authors are slow to fix their plugins)
