[Noisebridge-discuss] Your Noisebridge door code will soon be deactivated

I received a bcc'ed email claiming to be to be the response of a key code
audit warning that my current door code is too short, and I should reply
with my current code and a 10 digit code else my code may be deleted.

Is this legit?  Seems like a possible phishing attempt -- an unprompted
message asking me for security credentials over email?

If it is legit -- I appreciate the notice and chance to update... maybe
there's another mechanism though?  again, seems like phishing -- if you're
sending the email you know which is my code obviously..

As a second piece of unsolicited feedback, asking a human to memorize a 10
digit pin code -- seems excessive for codes that need to be manually typed
by someone in a specific physical location?....

Anyway, just some thoughts... The doorcode mechanism is great, thanks
everyone for all the work involved in keeping it running effectively, and I
do appreciate the pro-active messaging.

Apologies if this was already mentioned somewhere...
