"I changed my password 3 hours ago..."

 

Smart move. As of now, as far as I'm concerned everything in my Upwork account is compromised until the results of a proper security incident audit are released.

I hope that is an external security audit.

 

Not too sure I would have much confidence in an internal security audit.

Me neither.

"we've resolved the root cause of what was resulting in some users seeing another's profile picture upon login"
 

No, you haven't. People are still reporting logging in and finding themselves in someone else's account. Please take the site down until the extent of the security failure has been identified, those affected have been notified and the fault has been properly fixed. All our personal data is potentially wide open here.

 With all due respect, Garnor... "some users" weren't just seeing "another's profile picture"

 

That's lame.

I saw posts about this on our local FB Upwork freelancing group page... so I went here to see wazzup.  Apparently, people are not only seeing a different profile picture... but another person's Upwork profile complete with all the information of that other person.  

 

Just changed my password too for added security.  I have to agree with the OP -- this is something major, one you can't simply hush.. or ignore.

I hope this isn't related to my account on Ashley Madison.

It's a great time to be a divorce lawyer right now. Always think of the positive, Bill.

Garnor, no offense, but your information policy is making matters significantly worse and not better. It's adding insult to injury. When can we expect an honest answer? And not one that is trying to tell us that what happened today wasn't all that bad after all. I would like to know who exactly had access to my data.
