I've heard from several board members today - users, mods and admins alike - that when they try to log in they are advised that they have exceeded their maximum number of login attempts. This means that some nefarious shit munching hackers have been busy trying to find an account with lax password complexity. There are a few things we can do to try to combat this, but perhaps the first thing we should each do is make sure that the passwords we use are sufficiently complex. Mine has lower case, upper case, numbers and other characters in it. Does yours?
Now, that being said, lets not all charge out and change our passwords if they are sufficiently complex. Freak and I have to reapprove anyone who does change their password. So please don't do it if it's secure enough.
Thanks all. Let's all be careful out there.
