This also happened to me on 2/27/15


FROM HPJ by email
Dear fordjunky,

Someone has tried to log into your account on HorsepowerJunkies.com Forums 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: 220.129.74.253








I searched the address & it was in Taiwan, Province of China.

I changed my password HPJ & my email passwords right after I received the email.
The next day my paypal ($ was taken & sent over seas), photobucket & a parts company account was all hacked also.

I started changing all my passwords


I seem to recall Microsoft was hacked a week or 2 ago.
The past day or 2 Microsoft has had me change & confirm my passwords.

Microsoft is tied into everything like Google is LoL

I use a relatively easy password for forum accounts. For my email and financial accounts I use randomly generated password and a password manager. It's a pain in the butt, but in this day it's just a matter of time before some hacker comes after your money.

I use different passwords for everything. So I'm not too worried about that.

This happened to me over on efigearheads forum. I think it was in January. Same thing, searched the IP and it came up China.

Its probably Kim Jon Jung.

As long as your password isn't something retarded like "password" or "12345" you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

If you do, go change it before your screen name starts making threads all over the place trying to sell cheap furniture and $1 underwear.

Thanks a lot asshole, now I've got to try and come up with a new password.

Unfortunately there isn't yet an easy fix for this. If anyone's account is accessed, we will likely first see it by that account sending out a spam pm. Please post up if you receive such a pm. Luckily as mentioned, unless your password is something very common and easy to guess, they likely won't get in.
