The Bannings Will Continue Until Morale Improves!

Some may have seen ConCen suddenly drop off the internet for 24 hours. In reality their IP address has been automatically banned for one of various reasons, like failing a login 4 times.

Normally I never mention the various ways ConCen defends against the constant attacks that every internet facing server experiences. Doing so only invites more attacks. However, I feel I owe an explanation to the people who get banned for legitimately trying to log in. Because there has been a recent rash of failed attempts to log into ConCen accounts, I had to implement an automatic IP address ban system.

My advice: if you forget your password, don't keep trying to log in; use the password reset link, or just don't log in - torrents are still searchable and downloadable. If your IP is banned, wait a day - it will unban automatically in 24 hours.

I had to use a proxy to get in again. The IP is being redirected to a page which shows a parse error.

Could you describe this page, or better yet, take a screen shot of it? The URL would be good too. When did this happen exactly?

Over the many years Y considered you like a brother. Y thank you for existing.
