    Yeah....some bonehead is randomly attempting to log in to the site via various members accounts.
    They are purely fishing. This bonehead/s has unsuccessfully attempted to log onto about Six (6) other members accounts as of current. Basically over the past Two (2) days.

    As mentioned above we have confirmed that all these attempts have been made from Russian IP address.

    Unfortunately there isn't much that can be done on our end as the system doesn't know who is actually trying to log in (the real you, opposed to someone else). You don't have to do anything different as a result, just keep your password info private. Experts suggest that you change your password, in general (not just here on SmokinStangs), on a regular basis.



    We are keeping a close eye on the site as a result. Additionally we,have submitted related IP info and detailed accounts of these recent happenings (along with the site being recently hacked) to the various reporting agencies here in the US http://itsecurity.vermont.gov/Report_Crime.

    Same here, same IP address, on more than one forum (also got an email from YuppieRacing.net, IP address 188.143.232.144). Beware if your password is one of the most common P@$$word$.

    Wouldn't you want to ban that IP address to prevent them from attempting further tries?

    I am still getting emails from attempted log ons, block that IP ;)
