It is possible that the same attackers are now trying the same on our (and other people's) PHPBB forum!

I don't want to create antagonism or a panic, but the way our forum "un-behaves" lately is a royal PITA.
Error messages with: "User xxx already has more than 'max_user_connections' active connections "
are unfortunately happening all too often for everybody's liking.

For now, members may notice an additional CAPTCHA challenge when logging in. The usual advice concerning login credentials applies: don't re-use your passwords across multiple sites, use a fairly complex password, don't use a dictionary word. I've not seen any evidence yet that a member's account has been taken over but we are monitoring the situation.

I agree. I wonder just who these [insert noun] are? I often see the results of their work and even if I watched American football (their links sometimes indicate televised games to watch) I would not click on their links. Even if I needed new kitchen tiles I would rather locate my own source for tiles.
