    Same happened to me. This was in my inbox sent from APS

    Dear carterd,

    Someone has tried to log into your account on Aussie Pythons & Snakes with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 108.162.225.58

    Thanks,
    The APS Team

    this is the IP address thats been causing trouble. we have had countless registrations from this address.
    Im going to ban anyone using the IP address because Im sick of these constant registrations.

    yeah Im well aware of this and when I blocked some registrations last week I had these "new members" screaming in the support centre.. why are they using this IP that originates overseas?? either they are banned members or its a bogus registration I think.

    but theres something definitely wrong with this IP address and "when in doubt" ban them :lol:
    We're getting 5-10 new registrations a day from this IP address and I think most are bogus.

    if your having trouble with tapatalk on your phones try clearing the tapatalk cache and see if that helps

    The IP address 108.162.225.58 is owned by a company called CloudFlare. I assume it belongs to a range of addresses they lease out, I don't really know.

    The parent nameserver for aussiepythons.com is a nameserver run by CloudFlare. ( lady.ns.cloudflare.com / sam.ns.cloudflare.com )


    Coincidence? Probably. Somebody smart figure it out please :p

    "Hacker's" IP 108.162.225.58 ISP is CloudFlare in the US.
    AussiePythons IP 199.27.134.131 ISP is CloudFlare in the US.

    As you said ZsaZsaGaboa, coincidence? possibly but I doubt it.
