Hacking attempt ?

I got the following message (automated, i presume)
"Someone has tried to log into your account on THE NIGHTMARE NETWORK 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: 188.143.232.144

I looked up the IP range and got the information it must be Near: Russian Federation.


I don't see how anyone could benefit from hacking my account here, since there is no Money/Credit Cards whatsoever involved here.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know.

Hope is a lack of information.

Re: Hacking attempt ?

Another member emailed me the same warning which also originated from Russia. It is likely a scavenger bot crawling through various forum sites trying to mine user data. I do not see an immediate cause for alarm but I will keep my eyes open. Please let me know if there are additional warnings.
