Those of you who like to browse the Internet via VPN’s, and especially those who use Tor, may notice that you now have to fill in a CAPTCHA form before you can access the blog.
Due to lots of ‘traffic’ *cough* from China, and the usual daily attempt at accessing my account using brute force attacks, we have now upped the security. We are now routed through Cloudflare, and have also lowered the failed login attempts from 20 to 5.
This won’t affect any of you, because only i have to login, it just stops people from using Dictionary’s and brute force attacks, as after the 5th wrong login, they get IP banned from the site 🙂
I have also added some extra security measures, that nobody only hackers will notice. The only way it will affect readers, are if you use Tor, and maybe some VPN’s. A pain in the ass i know, but it’s just something we have to do for now.
This made me lol, though. Every time somebody tries to guess the username and password for my account, the site emails me with all the details.
That reminded me of when Freestyleradio1 got his Facebook account hacked. I asked him how they got his password?
“I used freestyleradio for my password” he said
