Failed login attempts to my account

Post by Rowenfuul » March 26th, 2024, 11:47 am

Question for the forum moderators, or any other forum members that have run into this:

Lately when logging into the C2 forums I often receive a notification at the top of the login page about numerous failed login attempts into my forum account, and I then have to use captcha to verify I’m not a bot. When I do login, my attempts are always successful… so I’m assuming the failed attempts are due to a hacker hitting my account and possibly others here.

Has anyone else run into this, especially lately? Moderators- Can I get a record of all of the login attempts to my account over the last few days? Thanks in advance for your feedback and help!

It's been a while, but I went through a patch of this happening quite a lot. I didn't really give it much thought tbh.

Me too. Sometimes it happens more often, then several days no problem. No idea about the root cause.
