What to do if someone is trying to distributed brute force my account?

I recieved three e-mails within a minute of three different IPs being locked out for trying the wrong password on this forum...

I noticed the same thing on my account. I had to create this new account so i can post about it since i am unable to log in. The 3 emails i received are from IPs 78.x,200.x, and 219.x. When i do an IP lookup, these IPs is from Indoneisa, Argentina, and Czech Republic

I had the same 2 times. But I don't see any reason to mask the ip adresses of the abusive users:
94.228.204.2
and
178.213.33.129

But I'm not locked out which the mail says, because I'm always logged in.

However it's no good news when it seems people are trying to bruteforce accounts. Maybe somebody can do a good thing and put up some ip bans if they are not dynamic ip's.

A malicious attempt on my vb.org account

A few minutes ago I received this notice in my email:
Dear cbiweb,

Your account on vBulletin.org Forum has been locked because someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5 times. You will be able to attempt to log in again in another 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 200.94.71.73

Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Use the link below:

All the best,

I'm glad the intruder didn't get in, because my password wasn't all that strong, but evidently strong enough... this time.

I have changed my password to something very strong now, and I'm only posting this as a heads up for anyone who either doesn't have a strong password, or thinks it's strong enough, or hasn't changed it in a while. It's time to check it out.

I got one too from another IP. The IP resolves to Bangkok, Thailand. Looks like a bot might have been at work.
