Apparently, as I provided a way for members of our 1001skins...a way to register and use uploads, forums, posts and etc; hackers have been attempting to grab credentials for logging into the backend of the site.

On average I receive hundreds every minute on the server. While my host has done much to reduce the attempts to brute force reg/login from thousands to hundreds...I have decided, that I am over dealing with the constant threats made against my little free website.


1001Skins.com | Will finally be shutting down at the end of the month. I just don't have the time to commit to keeping everything good when the site usage keeps falling month over month, no one uploads anymore and it is being brute forced to death.

I will likely keep the domain for a few years; in case I change my mind...but, I doubt this will occur.

Peace.
