Urgent Request: Account Ownership Change not updating Opportunity owners

Just realized that opportunity owners are not being updated when the account owner changes.  Our system of record is an external system, so all ownership changes are done through the ASI.  I found an old post indicating this has been happening since 2009.  Does anyone have an automated example of how to do this?  I can add all these changes to a trigger, but I thought salesforce automatically handled this for active opportunities.

You are right. You need to create a Trigger on Account update to change the owner of all the active Opportunities. This doesn't happens automatically becuase there can be multiple Sales Reps working on the same Account add through Account Team.
