This is the number of 5 attempts emails I am receiving.
I don’t know if there is something on the forum that shows logon attempts, if there is I haven’t found it yet.

69 emails Sunday, 47 Monday, 5 Tuesday, 8 yesterday and 16 so far today. She seems to like me.
Strange. Thought I would have pi$$ed her off more than you.

Re: Another hacking attempt

FFS.


a) Add a "I'm not a bot captcha" for wrong password attempts. Slow people to a crawl .
b) Restrict the attacked users to an IP range so that 99.9% of vpns get kicked out for now. (sosorry if you do use a vpn for EF. but wtf. get a TOR specific exit node if you do for your EF fix)


¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Re: Another hacking attempt

Question. Why are captcha photos mostly out of focus?

To make it harder for AI to recognize all pictures with a car in it... not just out of focus, but also usually showing only a part of whatever it is you should mark for the same reason.


P.S: I got a couple of attempts on my User ID in the past weeks as well...

Looks like it’s coming from Romania from tracing back the IP address.
Dunno about you, but I’m above to log-out and have activated my VPN

In this case, to annoy the crap out of our members with system-generated e-mails - not to actually gain access to anyone's account.

Maybe because we moved to Switzerland and so are (unfortunately in most / many cases) considered as having fat bank accounts? (Ha,ha)
