  • Failed Login Attempts From China

    Just got an email from the website, noting that someone from an IP address not my own tried at least five times to login to my account here on the forums.

    The IP Address: 223.86.66.56

    In case anyone else gets a similar email from a similar IP. According to a geolocation website it's located in Beijing, China. China Mobile Communications Corporation or Guangdong Mobile are the ISPs.

      Back on the old forums, it was Russia for me one day. Just emphasizes that you want strong passwords, and to try to have different passwords on your forum accounts and your bank account.

        More than that its an often used IP address for scamming, associated with dozens of scam e-mail accounts.

            Since the beginning of the year SassyRonin has been having to counter brute force attacks against Green Ronin. I believe he did say they were from China, but we have also had trouble with Russian IP addresses in the past. Definitely keep your passwords strong, people.

              This happened to me a few days ago, but the offending IP was registered in the UK.

                      Hey everybody,

                      It is always a good idea to change your password periodically, and please make sure that your passwords are unique for each site. Easier said than done, I know. Password manager applications are your friend.

                      I'm not willing to block all of China or Russia by IP address, when anybody can spoof their location if they want to.

                      Do feel free to let me know if you get inundated with these "somebody tried to log in as you" messages. If you can't log in to RoninArmy.com after such an incident, you can always email me at webmaster [at] greenronin [dot] com.

                      Thanks!

                          I just got hit today as well. Since this is an old account I haven't used in a while, can somebody tell me how to shut it down, please?

                            Likewise, I'd like to have this account deleted if possible.
