Someone tried to hack my account?

I just recieved a CPA e-mail that read as follows:

CPA Server Thingy said:
Dear User Name,

Someone has tried to log into your account on CPA Message Boards with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 93.174.93.54

All the best,
CPA Message Boards

After running a quick search of the IP address, it appears to be a spam spider from the Netherlands that posts links on different servers. It also appears that there are several spamming accounts from 93.174.93.XX addresses, so it may be a Netherlands spamming business (?). Can we block this IP address? Anyone else get a notification?

That sucks... I'll make sure no one else is using that IP and block it.

It has for a long time...

That IP address didn't match anyone here, so not sure how they got your info...

Eh, I'm not too worried about it anymore, so long as the IP address was blocked. Personally, I think Modus Pwnens hired fifteen of his friends in the Netherlands to hack my account and replace my signature line with links to bad youtube videos. Fortunately, they were foiled by the "Guess my password wrong 5 times" limit and retreated to their enemy fortress.
