Chinese hack attempt?

Someone tried to log into my account @ Maxbimmer from the following IP:

They made 5 attempts - anyone else have this happen?

I change my passwords very frequently so I am not overly worried however I'm wondering if this is an isolated issue (my account), or if the forum is being scoped out for an attack.

I wouldn't worry about it, but it is important to have a strong password. It isn't an isolated issue, but unfortunately it does happen quite frequently on just about anything on the net with a password and username. The only difference is that you receive a notification from us. I also want to add that it's very unlikely that they will be successful if you have a strong password in place.

In any case, if you notice that there is an issue with your account, i encourage you to contact us, and we'll be happy to look into it for you.

Providing me the IP address that it gives you, helps as well Thanks.
