    I really don't understand what the point is in hacking my account. It won't get them any money. It won't get them fame. Heck, they would probably have better posts than me. Hack away. Why don't they just get an account, it is easier.

    Good catch - fixed. I have blocked all IP ranges from China that I could listed online. Hopefully this will at least cut down on the problem some.

    I forgot I even had an account here until I got an email about a failed (repeated) login attempt. I'll be closing my account but here's the IP address 124.88.67.8 to add to the ban list.

    Got one today.

    IP address was from a telecom company in Germany.

    Dear ryanjboutin,

    Someone has tried to log into your account on XR-Underground with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 79.210.176.189

    All the best,
    XR-Underground

    After blocking IP ranges for days with what seems like little success, I spent some time tonight hacking into the VB3 files and adding in a ReCaptcha 2.0 from Google. Hopefully this will stop all the spam bots from trying to hack accounts.

    Now... to get it added to the signup form!

    @JDUB916 I can delete your account.

    I will be adding more protection to the login script this week and that should take care of these problems.

    How do I go about deleting my Profile/Account? I no longer have my X-Runner. I received the email about the failed attempt to access my account, which reminded me of the site. I've been looking all through the account/profile menus, and don't see an option to delete it...and the "Support" and "Contact" links say it has been disabled.
