Spamming Problem

Recommended Posts

Apparently whoever is doing this is reading the forum, because my latest mail (the fourth one, for the record) is now claiming to be from Washington, District of Columbia, 20005, United States.

my 5th email also states that. Ir's probable though, that whoever is doing this has a network of zombie PCs around the world. I wouldn't immediately assume that the person is actually reading us just yet.
 

Edit: It's more likely that this second IP is designed to partially circumvent the ip ban so that more brute force can be applied to the password guessing.

Yea with this increase in hacking rate its probably best BCS inform the police /FBI / sheriff office about the ongoing cyber-criminality and listen to what they say they should do. (Especial because the forum users already be informed trough the automatic mails and so there is no point to keep it secret)

Alright folks, we're going to upgrade the forum again.

As with last time, bear with us as the dust settles- but after some discussion with the boards, this seems to offer the most options to cure the problem.

Well, I don't like it, but it's better than being hacked. Fingers crossed it does the job.

I object to changes made for the sake of it, or for shoving more ads and/or social media BS into my face. When there's a clear (and actual) benefit I'll be far less annoyed by it.

If you have a bleach fetish, maybe. Like, I called the previous update a series of bleached post-it notes, but this is above and beyond the call of monotone.

Oh, the spamming thing? Don't know, at least I managed to sign in just fine.

Alright. So about 4 hours ago, someone tried to log into my account 5 times from D.C. Lets hope this solution should alleviate our current problem.

Well, this upgrade is not too bad and so far nothing. The change to the login forum probably threw off their hacking software. I think that did it for now, but let's wait and see what happens in a few days.

I got 5 Messages in total about the hacking from the forum the last from 09/11/2018 09:10 PM. With the e-mail as login they hopeful can't continue with their hacking because they first have to guess a correct e-mail before they can try to hack.

Had to blow up the forum to 140% size but it finally utilizes most of my (non-mobile <_<) monitor space. Checking my mail it seems that I got one about a hacking attempt every three hours (didn't Free mention that ban lasted six?), but the last one is dated over twelve hours ago. Seems like it worked so far?

Incidentally, what's up with the list of...emojis? There are suddenly...a lot of them.
