The UserController class within the core API has a ChangePasword method that you can use to change the password for a given user account.

This works for me. (DNN 07.04.02)
This is easy way to change password programmatically.

UserInfo userInfo = UserController.GetUserByName(int.Parse(Properties.Resources.PortalId), "testuser");
UserController.ChangePassword(userInfo, UserController.ResetPassword(userInfo, "").ToString(), "newpassword");

DotNetNuke modules required an option to reset/change a users password. I set of trying all sorts of things as the ChangePassword function on the UserController required me to pass the old password which I did not know how to get.

After some more looking around I found that you can get the old password by using the UserController.GetPassword, I finished off my ChangePassword function and here it is below.

public enum PwdAction
{
    ChangePassword,
    ChangePasswordForceChange
}
 
public bool ChangePassword(int portalID, string Username, string newPassword, PwdAction action)
{
    string sOldPassword;
    bool bChangePassword;
    UserInfo oUserInfo = UserController.GetUserByName(portalId, UserName);
    //Get the older password. This is required to change the password
    sOldPassword = UserController.GetPassword(ref oUserInfo, "");
    if (oUserInfo != null)
    {
        switch (action)
        {
            case Utilities.PwdAction.ChangePassword:
                bChangePassword = UserController.ChangePassword(oUserInfo, sOldPassword, newPassword);
                break;
            case Utilities.PwdAction.ChangePasswordForceChange:
                bChangePassword = UserController.ChangePassword(oUserInfo, sOldPassword, newPassword);
                if (bChangePassword)
                {
                    // After changing the password, make sure user is forced to change the password to a new password
                    oUserInfo.Membership.UpdatePassword = true;
                    UserController.UpdateUser(oUserInfo.PortalID, oUserInfo);
                }
                break;
            default:
                Exception exc = new Exception(String.Format("Unknown action '{0}'", PwdAction.ToString()));
                Exceptions.LogException(exc);
                break;
        }
    }
    return bChangePassword;
}
