Problems Logging Into CMX - Captcha Required

Postby moongirl » Thu Mar 17, 2011 2:18 am

Battye, recently I've joined the ranks of the "Bot Brigade"...having to enter Captcha Code to login.
My login try quota appears to have been hijacked. Time to change passwords? :shock:

It happened to me as well:


It shouldn't be a problem, I'm under the impression these brute force attempts by bots are only trying "common" passwords like qwerty, password, 123456, etc. So as long as you don't fall into that category I don't think there's anything to worry about :) home of bat's, rat's and other farmyard animals...
