Also virus scanners or anything that may interfere with HTTP POST (plugins, proxies)

I have not had the issue again but this is posted over at share the files -

Hello,

It has recently been brought to the attention of the team that there is a sudden increase of "login verification" codes having to be entered to be able to sign in to the forum.

After some investigation it appears this is occurring on many high profile/high traffic phpBB forum powered websites, so it is not unique to our forum.

The reason this is happening is that an automated script is being run on infected computers scanning for phpBB forums, and then attempting to log in to them by using brute force dictionary attacks. In other words, the scripts are scanning memberlists for usernames and trying to guess people's passwords by running through huge lists of common words to see which work.

Any accounts that do have such insecure passwords and could be successfully logged in to will be noted by the crackers, and probably used to spam the forum later.

We highly recommend changing, or even making your password more secure than before, to prevent anyone from accessing your account. Click here to change your password in your profile now.

Unfortunately we can't stop the forum from asking for verification codes to sign in, as this is the forum doing its job to try and combat the cracking attempt.

We'd also like to make it clear that no passwords or user data has been exposed by us, and that the only way any personal data could be accessed is if your account has an insecure password.

Here's some tips for your account passwords and what you should choose:

* Avoid single word passwords that use a word found in a dictionary. These are extremely easy to crack by these automated attempts.
* Avoid using common names or phrases, because they are easy for people visiting or some unscrupulous friend to guess.
* Do use a number, or even better, a number and a symbol in your password - e.g. bett#69.
* Try and mix the cAsE of your PaSswOrd to make it harder to guess - e.g. Dur@c3LL.
* Change your password regularly if you share or use multiple computers to sign in.

When I have to login twice, I never have to fill in a verification code.

Maybe not, but I think the point is, is that someone is trying to hack/spam the forums (not just here) and are using brute force tactics to hack peoples accounts, possibly an anti p2p group ?? I don't know but the fact that you (and I, and others) have had this issue suggests that something is going on, and perhaps we should all change our passwords for something less crackable, not that I can remember what my password is as I have Xmarks installed so don't need to enter a password to login as it does it automatically :?

okay I'm still having trouble reproducing, next time someone has the problem please note the exact time and I'll check the server logs.
@the password advice, makes sense; please use a combo of mixed case letter, numbers and punctuation if you want a strong password :)

Just now, a few seconds ago.

I want to emphasize that I don't have to fill in any checks, but I just have to log in twice.
