Someone trying to hack into my OF sneek peek account
 
I just received a message from the OG's stating that someone has tried to log into my account 5 times unsuccessfully. They did provide the IP address of the person trying to get in, using IP lookup I was able to track them down. (I will be calling their abuse hotline)

Has anyne else received messages like this?

Yeah, me too from 74.53.243.34 (Chicago). Perhaps there is a 'bot that scans the group looking for login's and then trying simple passwords? I can't imagine why anyone else would want to hack into a forum!

Very strange.

Not to be a "me too," but me too. Same IP address

Same IP for me. I was under the impression that they were trying to hack into our Sneaky Peek accounts so they could get their grimey paws on an unauthorized version of OF... BASTARDS! ;P

same here in NH
 
I had the same notice of someone with the same IP address trying to access my account as well.

Anything we should do besides report it here?

I've banned that IP address from our forums.
