Då kan det bero på att du på kort tid gjort flera felaktiga försök att logga in, eller att någon annan gjort flera felaktiga försök att logga in med ditt konto. Vi har ett system som skyddar oss mot den här typen av hackning. Hur det fungerar beskrivs nedan. Har du problem att logga in, hör av dig till oss så fixar vi det.
Brute Force IP/Login Restrictions ( prevents username/password guessing )
As with any Membership system, it is possible for someone to try and guess Username/Password combinations by attempting a Brute Force Attack; whereby multiple/repeated logins are strategically attempted with various Username/Password combinations until a correct guess is made. It is NOT likely that you’ll be attacked in this way, but it’s still a good idea to protect your system; just in case somebody tries this. s2Member thwarts this behavior by monitoring failed login attempts that occur within a short period of time. Whenever s2Member detects an IP address ( i.e. a remote user ) that is consistently failing to enter a valid Username/Password, a temporary ban is created; preventing additional attempts from taking place for 30 minutes. This temporary ban, will ONLY affect the offending IP address.
*Note* an empty IP address ( associated with someone browsing anonymously ), is also considered a unique IP address, so it cannot circumvent s2Member’s security.
