What if some tried to login to your 6GA account?

I got this email from 6GA saying that someone tried to log into my account for at least 5 times. The email includes the attacker's IP address but, what am I supposed to do w/ this? Don't know what else to do besides changing my passwords here. Any suggestions, y'all? Anything I should be doing to / with this IP address?

Re: What if some tried to login to your 6GA account?

nothing. it is what it is. if they tried and failed 5 times then your password clearly works. i wouldn't change a thing.

a similar thing happened to me last year on a frs forum i'm on, i didn't change a thing and everything is fine. it's just a spammer trying to get a used account so they can post a crapload of spam don't worry about it.



thinking about it...they're probably upset that i've been keeping up with banning them as soon as they join which would be more reason to try and hijack someones account.

Andy, the hero 6GA deserves, but not the one it needs right now. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.
