    Default Failed login notification email

    Someone has tried to log in as me.

    They obviously didn't get in, so......

    is there anything I can/should do? It's probably a bot, but I figured i'd ask

    Only thing you could do is change your password to make it a little stronger.

    Getting the exact same notification in my email.

    This is the I.P. address. JohnnyGURU staff may want to ban this I.P. address from Registration and or Log-in. Sounds like a Chinese Spam Bot's I.P.

    Yeah. I'm seeing this at a lot of vBulletin sites. Apparently, someone is trying a new exploit, though it seems more like brute force.
