Those of you for whom I have changed your log-in username, can you tell me if the log-out problem is now solved?


cheers

Yep so it seems. But the spambots doesn't try every day, so it will be some time until I can say for sure.

.....but not for me.

adsI use the 'go to unread topics' option and while I can read all threads on page one, when I click on page two I get asked for my logon and password and then get nothing on page two. Is it possible to resolve this? It's annoying  me to the point where I just want to walk away from the forum.


Hi Holden


Did you read the first post in this thread? Especially the last paragraph re changing your username.


Let me know if you want it changed.


cheers

Oddly enough, I now have the problem, when I didn't have it previously. I have to re-log in 3 or 4 times a day now. :)

Hi Gurn


I was referring to those members who requested I change their actual Username (not their Displayed Name).


Even if you change your Display name, the bits already have your Username, and will keep trying to guess the password. The only solution for existing members is for me to change their Username (only and Admin can do it). Send me a PM if your want your Username changed.


cheers

It appears to have solved it for me.

What you can do in the meantime:
   
  • Make your Displayed Name different to your actual Username. You can do this in your Profile --> Account Settings. Your displayed name is shown on every post you make, but if that is not the same as your actual username (which is not displayed), the bots won't be able to try to log in with your real username. All members currently reporting problems have their displayed name the same as their username.

But many members got quoted by their actual usernames for almost four years, and these quotes remain displayed. Wouldn't that be a problem?
Just asking, I'm a digit dumbie. :-[

Oh, sorry, Rob. I went all cranio-rectal on myself there, hope I didn't get any on you. Yes, well I will conjure up a brilliant UN and give you a note shortly. Thanks!

Well, even with a screen name change, a user name change, and a password change I'm still getting logged out every hour.  No big deal and may be a good thing, as I often forget to log off and leave the window open for days!  :o

Addendum: Hmmm--this time it's kept me logged in for the past 3 hours.  Maybe the fix worked after all--thanks, Rob!

Changing my username has apparently worked. I haven't been logged out for more than 24 hours.

I haven't been logged out in three days or so since changing my username.

For those that are interested, this bot attack is affecting many forums across the internet, not just ours.
 
The good news is that the developers of SMF arwe working on a permanent fix - they are testing now and hopefully should be released in the next few days.
 
Stay tuned.

Update:
 
SMF has released a security patch to prevent bot hack attempts from loggin users out.
 
I have installed this patch, and there should be no further problems with people being logged out.
 
Please report any issues re logging in/out here.
 
cheers

Excellent! I really didn't want to change my user name after 10 years with it (8 here). Thanks, Rob. :)

Please report any issues re logging in/out here.
 

Maybe because I am at my work computer (though I've never had problems before) but I was logged out when I got here and can't log in again, as Luke or as my recently-changed-to-because-of-login-problems new name sul G (again). Hence the new account I've had to set up, hopefully temporarily. Would this be to do with your new patch, Rob?

Sorry to hold you up, Luke, I just got online and found your sad, sad plea for help... :'(

Ack!  Does this mean we've lost the ability to search and access all of Luke's old posts?  Drat!

I was referring to the affected account (display name: sul G (again)), which, I checked, has over one thousand posts.

He reported being unable to log in, so wouldn't have been able to delete his account even if he wanted to.   :)

Luke, did you try the "forget your password?" function on the login page?
