Someone trying to hack my EEVblog account

(1/1)

jpb:
I had multiple emails from EEVblog today - the first saying someone (not me) had instigated a forgotten password request.
Then there was about 5 or 6 for failed log-in attempts.

Slightly worrying - presumably someone wants an established account to perhaps do some scamming on for sale or for some other nefarious reason.

Has anyone else had their account attacked?

JohnnyMalaria:
It could be they had the username wrong. There are a lot of j** members.

jpb:
Thanks. Hopefully you're right, I'm perhaps a little paranoid/cautious. I upgraded my password from the previously rather simple but memorable one just in case.

AntiProtonBoy:
you'll be fine, just ignore the request

S. Petrukhin:
jpb, are you married?  :)
