How to counter hacking attempts? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

i have been getting this "error message" when trying to log into forum on numerous occasions since last year



i'm not worried about being hacked partly because my password are more than just simple words and partly because my game account is different from my forum account

but its annoying not being able to post at forum just because some hacker-wannabe failed to guess my password 5 times on that day

let this be a cautionary post to players who are:
1. using same game account and forum account;
2. uses random word as password

Nobody is trying to hack you.

The forums are just broken and have been doing that for a while.

It's what happens when the game is run by old ladies with no technical skills, driven by the puppet master which is Daniel James.

FYI, as far as I know, NONE of the software developers are ladies, old or young. Perhaps if they were the forums would work better!

I just had this issue - it is called a "denial of service" - and I found that, on the error page, pressing Refresh (F5 or ctrl-R) logged me in.
