CM/ECF Upgrade Complete -- Changes
The CM/ECF upgrade is complete. PLEASE NOTE: When you first login to the upgraded CM/ECF you will be prompted to change your password. Below are the guidelines to create a secure password and information on what will happen if you enter an incorrect password multiple times.
"To help protect against brute force attacks, CM/ECF requires users to create secure passwords. Passwords must be at least eight characters long and include both upper case and lower case alphabetic characters and at least one digit or special character (for example, 0 - 9, @, #, $, %, &, *, +).
After five invalid login attempts, the user’s account will be “locked” for five minutes and the following error message will appear:
Your account is temporarily disabled because an incorrect password was given 5 times. If you do not know who entered the incorrect passwords, or if you need to have your password changed, please contact the System Administrator. Otherwise, please try again in approximately 5 minutes.
After the initial five minute time out period has expired, the next failed login attempt will increase the time out period to six minutes in the future. After the new six minute time out period has expired, the next failed attempt will increase the time out period to seven minutes in the future, and so on. "
