212.143.129.221? Or something close to it? It doesn't belong to any user, but resolves to a subdomain of 'musicat.com'

Got the same e-mail, as did Atomic and probably damn near everyone else.

I did a little digging in the mod panel and some googling and found out that we're not the only ones with this problem from that domain - this thread got posted on another forum around the same time - http://board.uscho.com/showthread.php?t=78692, and that's the limit of what my liberal-arts educated brain can focus on.

So apparently this is a widespread botnet/user scraping thing. Whether it's due to some vBulletin vulnerability or whathaveyou I'd have absolutely no idea, that being the province of our glorious and largely mythological admin.

Me, I'm just going to change my password to a hex string and call it a day.

And here I initially thought it was some wacky Drani/Faulkner plot to pull back old members.

Edit: Also here - http://agw.bombs-away.net/showthread.php?p=1016505 and google turned up something similar on "Portland Bike Forums" of all places, but their sites been pulled down.

A dead shell of an anime forum, and a bunch of pushbikers. Can world domination be far behind?

I too just got that message.

Stating:

"Account on Animeboards.com Forums locked out",

and stating:

"The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 212.143.129.220"

What gives?

The hell do I care about old members? I hated all of them, although granted not as much as the remaining members. And who the hell is Faulkner?

On second though Eva2k, you should let the bot keep doing its work. Look at all the older members it brought back because of the failed e-mail log ins.

Might as well have the damn thing work to our advantage.

Same thing happened to me. And then today I got some PM from some guy I've never heard of and all that was in it was a link...that I did not open.

I think it was a ploy by George to get everyone back here again.

I also got that PM. I didn't trust that link. I wonder why?
