Fred Barclay username warning.

Post by Fred Barclay »

Something strange is happening with my login at Kali Linux forums--every time I try to login, I'm told that I've exceeded the login attempts and I need to try back in 15 minutes. So I'm thinking that either there's a problem with the Kali forums server, or someone has gotten my username and is trying to guess my password.
With that said, I'm changing my password here, but just in case, please be aware that it is possible that someone might try to do the same here; so if you see any strange activity under my account, it's not me! ;)
I have been using an unsecured wifi network (due to location, it's not mine!), and I know of others who have had strange activity at this location as well. So hopefully this is nothing, but I wanted to warn you guys in advance.

No no no, my brother is the Royal Prince. I'm his chief agent. I collect the processing fees for the monetary transfers.

UPDATE: if it was a "whoever", they've apparently given up. I can login now with no warnings.
If it was a "whatever", it's apparently given up too. :)
Not to call off the warning, though, since I still don't know what's happened.
