                They trying to brute force your board? Or your thingy here . My board is behind a htaccess that simply can't be bruteforced since it has no user/password assigned to it

                        that's most likely the case, 10+ people know my password anyway

                          Basically if they dont get it after 5 you get email. They continue to brute force you get it every 5 emails even though its not even checking the login cause they are locked out after the first 5.

                          Did that make sense?

                            So, they only have 5 goes anyhow before it locks them out. You still keep getting emails it doesn't actually let them in?

                              yeah its to let you know how hard there trying to brute force.

                              Basically 10 emails = 50 attempts, though this is only as of Monday.

                              On sunday during the first attempt you got 1 email for every attempt over 5.
