218.28.111.46 which resolves to pc0.zz.ha.cn just locked out my account here.

A forum that I regularly visit was hacked last night and has been taken down, but strangely, my username is slightly different there, and the password is completely different.

Account on vBulletin.org Forum locked out

Not sure if I need to report this or not, but my account was locked out as some one was trying to guess/hack my password. I have updated it to something a little bit more secure just to be safe. The IP reported in the email was 122.225.100.5 which traces back to china.

I realize this isnt relevant to this forum btw, but no where else an unlicensed member can post that I know of.

Got the same emails.

You can't do anything. vB.org admins should disable the "Member list" feature:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/memberlist.php

Bots are taking usernames from that list and using brute force attack on this site.

I sent a PM to the admins about this.

Ditto, 3 tries in the same minute from Bulgaria, Italy, and Brazil based upon the IPs. Password was already pretty secure, but just to be safe I changed it to a REALLY long (randomly generated) password.

KeePass FTW

Yup, same thing about an hour ago.


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: 60.28.212.184

Ip shows China.

Strange, someone tried to access my account 3 times - each time failing. About 45 minutes ago.

I.P's used were:
78.41.17.230
222.124.5.82
200.117.239.246

Well, they can carry on trying - since I use alpha-numerics with symbols.

I just checked my password on http://passwordchecker.co.uk/ its states 100% strong!
