Looks like some third party software is trying to compromise accounts...

Just an fyi to members and the site admins. I received this e-mail this morning.

Dear picus,

Someone has tried to log into your account on M3 Forum 2008 BMW M3 2007 BMW M3 BMW E90 M3 E92 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:

All the best,
M3 Forum 2008 BMW M3 2007 BMW M3 BMW E90 M3 E92

A google search reveals:

The same IP trying to get into accounts on other forums.

Anyway, not a big deal but maybe ban that IP (although it may effect some members?)

Yea, these spammers are truly evil..

What they do is try to fish out accounts that use the same username and password. So make sure your password is always different from your username!
