Login attempts ?

Post by Jester-fr »

Hi everyone,

severals phpBB boards (in 3.0.8) have some troubles : Many members told they have an excessive login attempts on their profile (so they have to connect with Captcha).

Have you noticed it on the last past days ?

Yes it's been mentioned many times in other topics.
There seems to be a current wave of brute force attacks going on with many boards, and probably many board softwares too.

The phpBB software is doing its job by switching over to a captcha confirmation too. As long as you have a good password you're fine. If you stay logged in (ie don't click the logout link) you won't even see that page.
