    Default The forum is under attack

    Bruteforce attack specifically.
    I don't know how they managed to bypass vBulletin's login limit, but I've got 34 emails about that...
    Oh and, many others are getting emails about that too...
    It's about time Ubisoft does something about it.

    Update: looks like a distributed denial of service. The attacker is using alot of IP addresses.

    It appears that only those who are "attacked" at first will be affected in the future by the amount of emails.
    So i'm fine

    In the meantime you should block growtopia forums in gmail, it seems that it will not be able to log you in to your account, but just spam your gmail.

    Hope they'll fix it soon

    Yes, this is a thing. It did not happen to me but in discord, everyone's panicking.

    Luckily, the hacker thinks I am a noob or something.. This is even worse than he trying to access my account! I AM NOT A NOOOOOOOB!!!!
    This is like a slap in the face. A HACKER THINKS I AM A NOOOB!!!!


    thanks, mr. hacker. I am not a noob though.

    Nothing to worry, somebody seems like learned to bruteforce and trying to get attention. Better to ignore it.
