No, login seems normal.

Dont click any link in an email. Go to the site and see if it asks you for a new password. Sounds like a phishing scam.

I received a similar email purporting to be from Getty - it has my name correct too.

But I can still log in normally so I'm ignoring it.  As Cathy says, don't click on email links, although it does seem to go to the valid forgot password page as far as I can tell.

I got the email, went to the site and could not log-in. Clicked link in the email and changed password, returned to the site and could log-in.

There seems to be a delay posting the 1st July 2020 earnings statement.

No, the earnings reports are posted - at least, mine is.

Correction - I tried to login today and it won't let me.  So I went to "Forgot Password" and made a new one.  OK now.

So I'm thinking the email was genuine...

Genuine or not, I would go to the site directly and do it. Next time it might not be genuine.

Which is also the official advice on the iS forums.
