  • Someone attempting to hack into my account

    Just got this email.....

    -------

    Dear DarkSideofOZ,

    Someone has tried to log into your account on MyUnreal BBS with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 188.143.232.144

    All the best,
    MyUnreal BBS


    -------

    Any idea who that might be and why they might want access to my account?

    I got one too. Realized that I had an easy password on here so I logged in and beefed it up. Same IP address 188.143.232.144.

    Seemed to come from Russia.

      So someone ran a script to scan the forum for user names, then attempted to use a brute force pass hack to make a grab at the users passwords... but on this site? why?

              I'm overseas in Lausanne. Difficult to do a lot from my side. I did find a new user that was a spammer, they could be the source of pulling the members list. They're banned now.

              But, generally, it would seem as if someone is bruteforcing the server to try and gain access to some accounts. Some forum settings may need to be tweaked but it's going way too damn slow for me to adjust them right now.

                How do we know anyone is real now? Lausanne? Really?!?!? Sounds like a place a hacker would make up!

                  They probably don't know there are so many more fun things to hack!

                    If you knew where I worked, you'd understand why I was in Lausanne, CH!

                        Yes, Muscat. I sometimes am there, because my business is headquartered in Cheseaux. Are you familiar with Lausanne?

                          Dude, I can totally drive over if you are in Lausanne. I'm about 3 hours away from Switzerland.

                              BTW, did you get that package I sent? I totally forgot to send the customs/tracking info. If you didn't, I need to go dig that up.
