I've gotten notice from a couple other forums that some botnet is swooping around trying common passwords on known-usernames for forums... It was probably one of these bots trying to access your account that caused the issue. If you do not have a strong password, it may be time to change what you have been using...

So, you're saying having "Password" or "1234" as your password might not be the best idea? :lol:
