Would everryone please make sure that you have a complex password, so that hackers will not randomly stumble across it when they try to hack your accounts? We've had somebody trying to do that lately. Thanks.

Should we be suspicious at all that this is happening both at Jacurutu and here? :?

Has Ragabash had a look at the access logs to see where they're coming from (or pretending to come from)?

I'm going to change mine, both here and on Jacurutu. Haven't been asked to identify any kittens.

just for the sake of reporting the issue : it happened again today ! i had to click on kittens pictures to tell that i was really the owner of the account, meaning that someone or something was still trying to force accounts with guessed pwd.
