Thread: Bogus login attempt

  1. #1

    failed logins

    I got the following email this morning:

    Dear radi0chik,

    Someone has tried to log into your account on Radio Discussions 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: 183.207.224.50

    All the best,
    Radio Discussions

    ++++++++++++

    a quick check of the IP:

    inetnum: 183.192.0.0 - 183.255.255.255
    netname: CMNET
    descr: China Mobile Communications Corporation

    descr: Internet Service Provider in China
    country: CN

    tech-c: HL1318-AP
    remarks: service provider

    Well, I followed the advice that came up when I first signed in. Hopefully that will prevent it. Hackers do not limit such reprehensible conduct to a radio board either.

    It usually takes me 2X to log in. This morning it took me 4X.

    After the first one, you just have to remember that you changed your password.

    FYI I got the same email, checked the IP address, and it too is from Beijing China.

    My sense is it's not a real person making these failed logins. Any other thoughts?

    I got the same e-mail yesterday as well, and it's another Chinese IP:

    IP: 111.10.206.160
    ISP: China Mobile
    Organization: Guangdong Mobile
    Services: None detected
    Type: Wireless Broadband
    Assignment: Static IP

    I'm wondering if it's a probe or a coordinated attack to get passwords.

    I'd suggest it might be a good idea that if someone attempts to log in with the incorrect password multiple times, that person should be blocked until they contact the moderator. Fifteen minutes isn't enough. I don't think there's anything any of us can do to prevent this from happening.
