Topic starter  

Due to a sustained spam-bot attack on Diasboro during the last couple of days where 250 fake registered members tried to do what's known as a 'Brute Force' attack to try and hack into the administrator account, I've made a slight but effective change to the login page.

These attacks tend to target the default 'login' page of Wordpress sites so I've both installed a few extra security plugins, including one that hides the login page and blocks access to the wp-admin page - plus I've also given the forum login page a longer name that's harder to guess by automated hackers.

Hopefully that will work for now but I've still temporarily suspended new registrations until I'm satisfied the new systems are more secure.

Anyway, you can still login by simply clicking on the 'LOG-IN' option of either the Main or the Forum menu - which now takes you to the same page but with a different url.
