Login Attempts Maxed Out [Resolved]

Post by Omnidon » Sun Jan 16, 2011 2:55 am

The forum appears to be undergoing some sort of attack involving automated login attempts targeted at some of the BRPG regulars.

This attack is causing the brute force security precautions to prevent further logins, even to legitimate users.

While I cannot remove those precautions entirely or risk a true brute force attack, I will be taking steps to mitigate the disruption to forum use.

In the meantime, please ensure that your password is a strong one.

Note that I can manually lift the login limitations on a case-by-case basis if you find yourself unable to login for too long.

Just email me at:

if you have any questions or need help logging in.

My initial countermeasures seem to be working. ;-)

I'm demoting this to a normal thread since the issue seems to be resolved.

Note that if anyone is still having issues with this, email me or post here and let me know!
