  • Someone tried Logging into my account and Failed.

    I just got an Email from saying someone tried to login to my account and failed 5 times and its now Banned from logging in for 15mins. And it has the IP that tried to login listed in the Email.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address:

    That is NOT my IP Address, I am in the USA and the IP is from somewhere in China. And I never use any VPN or Proxy when im logging into

    What should I do about this?

    EDIT: I have changed my password for, and I changed my Email Password, and I also setup a 2 Step Signin Process on my email. So to even get into my email to use the Forgot Password features on sites, the hacker needs physical access to my Cell Phone, to get the Security Code to login to my email.

    I know, I am paranoid. But the vBulletin Forum Software is a few hundred dollars, I really dont want to loose that kind of money to a hacker. OR some kiddie playing with Brute Force Software.

    This happens all the time. The software is doing its job by blocking it. Just ignore it.
