Password requests


I keep getting emails saying that I've requested my password. I changed it then it stopped for a few days now it's starting again. Could it be an attempt to hack my account?

Re: Password requests


It could be an attempt to hack into your account, or it could just be someone trying to scare or annoy you.

If I'm not mistaken, those emails should say what IP the requests are coming from. If you have any suspects who post at your board, you could try comparing that IP with their IP as it shows on your board.

If you think it could be a genuine hacking attempt, make sure your email password and secret question/answer are something that nobody can guess. Better yet, use an email account that nobody is aware of, because they certainly can't get your Runboard password through your email account if they don't even know which email account to hack.

That's the latest one, are you able to check that on the Runboard member directory?

I don't have a function to lookup members by IP, but as I said, you can check it against any suspects you may have at your board.

Re:


I just checked the banned users by IP list using my browsers search function and got no matches so it isn't one of Runboards known trouble makers...

What banned users by IP list? The only such lists I'm aware of are board-specific.

Re:


True but the RSF list is a little larger than that of most boards since it deals with those who just want to cause trouble for RB as a whole. At least that weeds out most of those who have made a effort to mess with Runboard specifically...

Re: Password requests


I hadn't scrolled down to see that list in quite a while, and am surprised it's as long as it is. I very rarely ban by IP, because it's usually ineffective when you do an exact match, and risks banning a lot of innocent people when you do a partial match.
