    Default Someone tried to use my account!

    not here!

    on another forum
    hitmonlee,

    Your account on has been locked because someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5
    times. You will be able to attempt to log in again in another 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 213.115.111.135
    no other users on the forum have ever used that ip.

    is there any way to find out what country they are from or what isp they use?

    You should change the password to that forum to a tougher to guess just in case.

    That was the question I was going to ask. Since you are a moderator there it could be a user you banned or moderated using a proxy or somebody that does not like you trying to make you look bad by using your account.

    i'm a mod/admin, if i change my name they'll use my new name or switch to targetting another admin.

    lefteris: yeah it might be, but not really any way to tell who.

    as long as they can't get in its all good.

    This is what I suggest:
    • Keep the webmaster informed about security updates(forum software) if he cannot do that on his own.
    • Change your password often and if possible force the other moderators to do that as well.
    • Make an addition to the rules if you don't have one that breaking into a user account of an admin or moderator will lead to a permanent ban. Though this is not nessesary it should be good for those idiots to know what they have to look forward to.
    • Keep a log of the people you or the other mods ban and the reason. I require from all moderators to post at a specific thread who they banned, why and for how long. It also helps when a moderator is asked about a ban he did not place himself.


    I'll send you the bill for this lesson later
