Default Heads-up, someone's trying to hack into accounts

I just got a notification email that someone was trying to hack into my account using the wrong password more than 5 times and got locked out. Certainly wasn't me so we've got someone/bot trying to hack accounts that have recently posted.

Not sure if the admins need to know about this, but certainly anyone with a simple password that a bot could guess might want to update their info.

Hey guys a friend of mine told me that a good advice on passwords is putting an @ into your own password, if you add to that numbers and a long word it would be unbreakable.....
