                so far I've got none either ^_^

                Which is a good thing, as far as I'm concerned, cos I don't feel like having tons of emails to delete...

                    FYI, I've banned a bunch of IPs associated with these attacks.

                      I'd just like to say I didn't get any emails either and I'm feeling very unloved and emotionally bruised right now. My therapist says I should get these feelings out in the open. Thankyou for listening. :|

                          Thats because everybody knows your password, no need to brute force it at all

                            Well, I didn't fall victem to the attack, fortunately. But I'm hardly worried. 10 random character passswords are hard to brute force . According to my calculations, that's 36^10 attempts to try every possible combination or only about 3.6 quadrillion .
