    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Trying 15 "common" passwords first is a type of brute forcing using just your web browser pipboy. Your just not using a "brute forcing" program like accessdiver or hydra..etc...

    Just some info for everyone that has had these attacks.

    Please report them it is impotant

    send an email to

    stating that it was a hacking attempt on your account.

    they need to know

    Source IP or whatever it was in you case (this will be in the email you received)

    Destination IP

    Time relative to GMT (what the time was in GMT)

    They need this info to be able to fully investigate the complaint, and take the appropriate action.
    The more people that complain the better the chances are of this scumbag getting what they deserve.

    It is also a good idea to change your password (make sure to use a good strong password) this can be done from the user control panel, where you will find "edit email & password"

    Thank you, it is important that you take action

    The IP has been put in the forum's ban list, so all they can do is attempt to load the login php directly passing it details, but they will not be able to do much more from there onwards. I've actually banned the class C range.

    I seem to remember vaguely we had some automated activity from a similar IP not long ago.


    In God we trust, all others we monitor

    I didn't mention it, but we've done that before as well and will continue to.
