Default Did this website reset all passwords?

I received an email from this website letting me know that an admin has reset my password even though I didn't request a password reset. Was this a universal change or did someone target my account specifically?

I think I found the possible reason why we need to update our passwords.. http://thenextweb.com/insider/2016/0...e-data-breach/

Yep,

Over the 2 weeks they will be implementing some changes to our forum password strength and password expiration policies. The admins have recently become aware of a potential risk to some accounts coming from outside of this community. Just to be safe, they are implementing changes to improve security such as resetting passwords with more complex ones and 365 expirations to reduce compromise.

I believe many other forums are testing and rolling out the changes slowly to ensure that they do not cause unforeseen issues with current plug-ins and products on the site.

Just for our knowledge, has our data been breached already or is this a proactive measure?

anyone else having issues resetting their password? I'm not receiving the email with the new password after reset, and can't log in under my normal ID. Any help is appreciated, I sent an email to mods but have not heard anything.
