    Failed hacker log in attempt

    signed up for nevada shooters a while back but don't post over there. today got email someone tried to log in but was kicked out after 5 failed tries. Gave an isp #. looked it up and points to ukraine. So what is the deal? even if successful, what value to a hacker. the site has no personal info...

    I have ran a few forum type web sites and that's exactly what they do.

    On NevadaShooters we've been getting complaints for the past couple months about user names subject to attempted hacks. All we can tell the members is to make sure their passwords are strong and don't link to anything important. Most of the attacks started with Chinese IP's but now seem to be bouncing all around as if behind a proxy instead. No idea why we've peaked someone's interest but we have.

    Most likely a bot..
    A program/script designed to work with Forums built using some standard software such this site using "Powered by vBulletin® Version 4.2.2
    Copyright © 2015 vBulletin Solutions, Inc. All rights reserved.". It could work on any site built with that software.

    Script queries the server for a list of usernames, then it tries each username with common (and stupid) passwords such as "password" "123456". If that doesnt it moves on to the next username and tries the same passwords.


    After a successful login it Posts spam from the account...

    I had the same thing happen on AKfiles.com about a week ago. Got an email from the admin saying someone tried 5 times unsuccessfully, to access my account. I did a search on the IP address and supposedly it came from Romania. I have no idea what the purpose would be since there are no credit card numbers on message boards.

    According to our site Admin we get around 200+ hackers mostly from China each month trying to hack our Club website. Again no personal info available on it. Go figure.

    Using your account to spam malicious URL's, click farming and the like. Most forums these days have fairly good protection for the registration process, so the next thing to do is to try and break into accounts and use those and in general its trivial because people don't care to protect forum accounts with strong passwords.
