Over the past month I've been seeing a lot of Brute Force like attacks going on against the site. We aren't alone it seems that this has been happening with a lot of sites lately.

Almost all of you have tried to access the Administration Control Panel of the site at least once, but usually multiple times, over the past month or so. Now I understand it's not you doing it. Also no breach has ever happened. A Brute Force attack on this site just simply will not work. That said I would suggest you make sure of a couple things.

* Passwords should include letters & numbers
* Passwords should use a mix of upper and lower case
* For extra security Passwords should contain special characters ( ! @ # $ % & )
* Make sure to not use the same password here and on other sites. Or within WoW itself.
* Do not make the password easy to guess. ie: 1234abcd
* Do not use repeating characters ie: xxx999xxx
* Verify your email address has not been changed within your User Control Panel


Thank You
Your friendly neighborhood web master
