    I got an email....

    Said something about someone tried to use my account and entered the wrong password. Said they would be blocked for 15 minutes. I hope this is something you can check into and see if/when this happened.

    Thanks

    I'll look into it, thanks for letting me know.

    Before I get in to deep, answer me this:

    Are you sure that you didn't recently attempt to log in from South Africa? Because that would make this easier to figure out

    Here's the deal-

    It looks like this is a newer way that Spambots are trying to access Vbulletin boards. We currently have the board set up to not allow more than 5 login attempts, so as long as you have a secure password you'll be ok. If anyone receives this notice, copy the message body to me via PM and I'll ban the IP of the spammer.

    If I can Sherlock for a minute here: you'll notice that all the members in this thread reporting a problem have a number as the first part of their username. This means that these bots are going alphabetically. It doesn't mean that these users are any less/more secure (that requires a strong password). If you think you might have a weak password, change it. There's no big security risk with these attempted logins, so just keep a good password and let me know when you receive these emails. Everything is safe, we've always been at war with Eastasia.

    Thanks!
