    Hi

    Just woke up to find this message in my in box

    Dear STD305M,

    Someone has tried to log into your account on The Art of Sound Forum 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: 185.93.228.4

    All the best,
    The Art of Sound Forum

    Looks like the changes haven't quite kicked in yet ? New Forum Firewall is misbehaving lol.

    Looking at the logs I think this predated the change I made to resolve the issue (you will have been sent an email at 21:01 last night.
    I can't see any 'suspicious' failed login attempts since 22:15 last night.

    This is a regular occurrence for me on DIYAudio. It is caused by an incorrect handshake on Tapatalk. If you use that then suspect the app first, not hackers. Remember it updates from forums quietly in the background.

    Default Hacking attempt

    Someone tried to log on to my account, unsuccessfully, yesterday from this IP address 208.109.0.4. Very annoying. Sorted now. Maybe a time to update passwords. Why don't these sad bastards get a f'ing life?
