    Well, for those that love it here is what's outside my house right now...you're welcome to come shovel it for me. :p -19°C currently.
    Forecast is calling for an increase to -1°C today followed by another dump of snow tonight.

    Rain 100%...I don't have to shovel it!  Plus it's a literal Blizzard outside right now, so I'm sure that "didn't" influence my choice at all.

    I checked a few sources and the email from the account does show up as having been breached from Zanga Gaming, so they likely used the same password here as on that site.
    Doesn't really matter now as we've blocked up the account.
     
    Thanks for reporting the links.

    Well, they're still at it, so that entire IP Block is now blocked at the firewall.  Hope it wasn't anyone too important at Huawei International Pte. Ltd.....

    I will be performing backend maintenance later today, so expect some downtime as I upgrade the server.

    ...There sure are alot of guests from Singapore visiting the site right now after the upgrade...maybe I should block that IP range.

    Alright, think I'm done fiddling with this.  We get an A on our HTTPS report now, so I'm happy.

    He keeps trying....I've banned a few of the IPs now from there...all DHCP so it's probably not going to help...I may have to ban the IP Range from that ISP completely.
     
    I'm going to add his IPs to the firewall on the server as well, as I think the login page still renders if I ban an IP.
     
    If you find your account locked out, you should be able to try again in 15 minutes as it will auto unlock (provided numbnutz doesn't keep hitting it).

    Has been banned, but it's a DHCP Address in Iowa, so it will likely return as a new IP at somepoint.  You weren't the only account it attempted to login as.
    Thankfully the forum software's lockout/autounlock does it's job in preventing a true brute force attack, as it maxes out at 3 attempts.

    I'm guessing someone got to it already as @Daddy_Jacoby seems to only be a member of the default member group right now.
     
    Oh yeah, there is a nice admin audit bar on the right now, it looks like Darkesia got it update for you last night.

    Vortex was halted as it actually broke the MySQL database (too much data was retained I guess), I might be into looking at redeveloping that a somepoint, but do have to admit that when I get home from work, I'm less motivated to work on Web projects like that than I used to be. 
    That said....now that you bring this up, I wonder if Vortex would be a good candidate to use SQLite instead of a full fledged database...I have had an itch to try building something using that.
     
    As for a tip jar, I'll look at setting something up so we can use paypal...it seems like the least amount of work overall.

    I don't see why not....course, I reserve final judgement before uploading, but so long as they're not overtly offensive I don't see objecting to them.

    And we're back....gotta give the guys are Wholesale Internet a big shoutout.  Put a ticket in and they had me up and going on a KVM within 20 minutes of me borking the OS upgrade.
