I have no idea what is going on, but I'm thinking about hitting up someone in sig platoon for a set of codes so I can set a 25 trigram pass word that will pass muster.

Sorry all, yeah I had to adjust the settings this morning before heading out for the day. Yep Terrapin's got it in one - there's been a mass brute-force attack on a bunch of accounts, resulting in some being automatically locked out. Until I work out the appropriate way to block these attacks without black-listing valid IPs, I've had to respond by enforcing a higher password complexity, and password aging (60 days) as well.

It's altogether possible that this will now result in a deluge of "I can't access my account" emails... We shall see.

AusMilitary.com is Australia's leading military discussion forum. Originally formed back in 2004 as AusSpecialForces.com as a forum for, by, and about the Australian Special Forces, the forum has since widened it's scope to include all members and branches of the ADF as well as our honoured guests and allies from overseas. Despite some sections being open to the public, the forum still enjoys the membership and advice of respected members of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces both local and international, as well as those from elite specialities in the conventional forces. From recruit training right up to SF selection tips - if it's frank and honest advice you're after, you'll find it here.
