tv fool sent me a message that someone tried 5 times to log into my account.
The IP address provided is Beijing :mad: Just wanted to see if anyone had a similar issue. Thanks

I rec'd that same message a week, or so ago.
I figured if were that important, something would show up in my PM and not my email..

Same thing. "The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 202.102.22.182".

I got the same email today:

Someone has tried to log into your account on TV Fool with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 39.191.59.6

All the best,

Ditto the attempts on my acct on 3/14/15. Seems the dimwit is now trying to access accts that don't post often.

"Someone has tried to log into your account on TV Fool with an incorrect password at least 5 times. The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 177.203.124.229"

I Googled the address and it says: "is an IP address range owned by Brasil Telecom S/A - Filial Distrito Federal and located in Brazil"

I'll further increase the p/w strength, that should make life impossible for the dimwit ;) But what can they gain by hacking a forum like this? Spammer wanting to post spam?
