Hack Attempts on BolehVPN Forum

Someone has been attempting to brute-force our Support forum accounts. This means they’ve been trying all types of password combinations in an attempt to “guess” the password. This is NOT a security vulnerability. However, for safety, we have disabled our forum temporarily.

For your information, every single day our Customer Portal system is subject to bruteforce attacks but with our security systems, these attacks are mitigated. This is the first time our support forums have been targeted at this scale.

Some important tidbits:

  1. Our Support Forums exist independently from our Portal. However your account may have been compromised if your password was weak.
  2. Your BolehVPN account is only potentially vulnerable if your forum account shares the same username and password. We however recommend for you to change your password to something suitably complex/long.
  3. When our Support Forums come back online, please also change your forum password.

We will install additional login security to prevent this.

    I also received 2 failed login attempt notifications via Email from what seems to be from Brazil (IP: 189.108.*.*)
    Not sure if it’s failed login attempt from the client portal or forum but I have confident with my password. 😉
