This happens periodically. They're looking for common passwords, so as long as you have a strong password you don't have to worry.

I got hit too.
Surely there are spam prevention mods that would help prevent us from getting those emails?
Maybe a "log in under x seconds" mod?

You don't want to be told that someone tried to brute force their way into your account? I like to be told. I throw them away, but I do like to know.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

Online vBulletin Manual
If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Me too, just got 4 attempts on my account.

--------------- Added 09 Jun 2013 at 20:16 ---------------

Add another 19 attempts to that. All from separate IP's. Quite the extensive attack on vBulletin.ORG right now.
