    Someone keeps trying to log in.

    If someone fails to enter there password correctly soo many times I get an email. Currently its set to 5 times. At present I am getting many emails because of one particular username, not had any from any other usernames recently. Below is a log of the last 185 attempts (there are more)

    The odd thing is that this username does not exist anyway. Also going by the times and frequency its probably a computer program trying to post rubbish, is so perhaps their automated sign up was refused as we have a bit of validation in that area.

    I can block an IP address, usually a user may show up as a few different ip addresses, like work or home networks, although mobile networks can give out a few. Checking the IP trace on a few some come from Texas, another from Washington.

    I also checked to see if this user was registered on other websites/forums. Its an unusual name so quite possibly the same person perhaps? well the username is on a few other forums, but without being a member of them forums myself I haven't been able to check. There doesn't appear to be posts from this user on other forums, but I can see the users profile, which looks quite normal.

    Found the same username posting blogs, link from their profile here:- View Profile: aminahsx - Forums dosn't looks like they are posting stuff safe for work.

    I will keep an eye on this. Another login attempt was made in the time I'm writing this.
