All passwds have been reset due to a security breach that they don't think 
leaked a thing but this precautionary because the attacker used a good 
passwd to get it, but never got root.  If you are not a member of the 
group, I suspect you will need to go back to the original login syntax so 
that your credentials are refreshed.  Or maybe even do a passwd update. I 
had to do mine a couple of days ago after they sent me an email.
