    Possible Spammer Trying to use my username?

    Didn't really know where to post this.... Just got an email about an hour ago from admin@vintagejetboats.com telling me that someone has tried to log into my account under my username but failed to get my password. Anything that I can do to help protect myself? I've been a member for a while, just not a huge contributor... I'm a transplant from over at the sidewinder site. Also an egg beater owner, so go easy on me! :)

    This has happened to most of the moderaters after new spamware was installed. That was a couple months ago. In the last week it seems some hacker is trying to match passwords and user names again. The software is solid and they are losing! Thanks for the heads up!!!!!!!!!!! We are keeping our users as safe as possible! Always report any problems so we can fix them poste haste. Jason

    Good deal. I felt comfortable with the system notifying me that someone was unable to access my account. Thanks for the tight ship! No pun intended!

    Thanks again cturboaddict! We have quite a few safeguards in place, we are as concerned, about our members security, as we are about our own. The E-Mail notifier after 5 failed attempts to log in, Helps us find the culprits IP, or range of IP's so we can ban it permanently. If you ever have any other issues, let us know! BTW, I hear they make a little Jet that will bolt right on the bottom of that whacker!

    I do have the IP in the email if you need it. Just let me know where to send it.

    Well, I take that back. Looks like I deleted it from my emails. It originally went to my spam box for some reason, and when I deleted it from there it erased it for good. Woops.
