I haven't been here in a long time, since I sold my e34 touring off a while ago. Yet I got two emails today of my account being locked out because 5 tries wasnt enough for someone (twice). I have the IP addresses but not sure what, why, or how to go from here. If theres a mod who all ready has access to those PLEASE have fun with them. If there's someone who knows how to proceed; how? I will check back for this. Has this been going on or should I take this personal??

Same here:


Dear WileECoyote,

Someone has tried to log into your account on BimmerNut.com Forums 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: 23.92.16.229

That address translates to This (http://whois.arin.net/rest/net/NET-23-92-16-0-1/pft), which is linode.com. I be someone hacked in there and was going for all the accounts here.
