Recent Bot Attack
Posted 22 March 2011 - 09:19 AM
We have recently been hit by a new type of attack. It is a bot (computer generated) attack, that tries to break in through member accounts. It has not succeeded, but several accounts were locked out automatically--a safety feature.
It has primarily hit those people who have allowed their email addresses to become public.
If you experience trouble logging on, or get a notice that your account has been locked, rest assured we will fix it asap, and you should then notify the Admins, as I want to know what you experience.
Please use the PM system to exchange private information, such as, email addresses, and phone numbers.

If anyone wishes information on this bot, write the admins. Happy to disclose what we have learned. Always good to share info that stops these creeps.

Again, it has been primarily people attached to an email group.
