I'm puzzled why they bother spamming these forums.

I got an email from the Corsair forums a few minutes ago telling me someone tried to login with my username but got the password wrong 5 times and their IP address will be blocked for 15 minutes.

 

Good feature but why the hell would someone try and get into my account ?

*EDIT*

 

Apparently it's a well used IP address that is only involved in spam and cons

This IP is a TOR Exit Router. What's going on @Corsair?

They're just bots using proxies attempting to gain access to people's accounts to spam the forum. Nothing new.

 

What's Corsair got to do with bots hitting the site (and failing) ?

What's Corsair got to do with bots hitting the site (and failing) ?

 

I think it would be wise for Corsair not to make people paranoid with automatic messages about unsuccessful log-in attempts if they are certain that their accounts are not compromised in any way, shape, or form. What's the point of sending these messages if Corsair truly believes that these bots 'fail' after filling the password field unsuccessfully with just random characters?

 

So what is it? Do we need to take these messages with a grain of salt because they report 'failed attempts', or do we need to change our password every time we receive this message because there really are some valid security concerns regarding our accounts? Because I don't see the point of Corsair sending these messages if they don't think it's necessary that we need to change our security settings after we receive these messages.

I've gotten these emails repeatedly for several days. I no longer have any corsair products and would be fine with removing my account, but I can't seem to find anything that would let me do that. Anybody know how to remove your own account?
