          Looks like here's another one: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/p...e=display&id=4 Sysadmins should check the log to see if a password guesser is at work.

              We are aware of the problem and this is one that Joe(forum owner) will have to solve.

              So if you don't know the poster I recommend that you do not open the thread.

                I just got home and am in the process of deleting all those errant threads.

                In the mean time, don't click on anything in them.

                  This attack is made possible by the rather old forum software....

                  Password guessers shouldn't work at all.

                      A locked one.

                      Just so everyone knows, we're not approving these new members.

                      Joe is busy at an appointment this morning.

                      As soon as he get to the office he'll take care of the problem.

                      In the mean time the admins and mods are keeping an eye on things and deleting unwanted threads and locking unwanted members as soon as they pop up.

                      Keep enjoying the forum as you usually would.

                      There is no harm in doing so.

                          Dave,

                          I locked his account and also the thread where he posted.

                          Joe is working on the problem.

                          Hopefully he will be successful and find the problem.

                            If it is a password guesser, I hope all of you have passwords other than password, 12345, abcdef or anything else on this list: http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_te...about_you.html

                            If your password is something along those lines, please change it now to something more challenging.
