  • [Forum] Failed login's

    As you know this is set to 5 failed login attempts before it blocks you for 15 mins

    Is it possible to change the default 5? i.e to 2 or 3 maybe?

    5 is hard-coded in the function verify_strike_status(), which is in includes/functions_login.php. So you'd need to change the code to change the allowed strikes. It might also be possible to create a plugin that logged more than one strike at a time, and change the behavior that way. But code changes and plugins aren't supported on this site, so if you wanted help with that you'd need to ask at vbulletin.org.

        If bots are trying to log into actual user accounts, they must be getting usernames from somewhere, probably /memberlist.php Try blocking access to memberlist for guests.
