Description

I checked settings and the "Anyone can register" is unchecked.

I was able to regenerate a password and delete the user registration.

I received several emails over the weekend regarding this activity. My password was 15 characters long, so I am not sure how anyone could have figured out my password. I am concerned and wanted to let someone know of this security vulnerability.
