Security checks?
« on: June 21, 2017, 11:37:16 AM »

I have been seeing Captcha screens when connecting to Melnet from work, and have now been reportedly blocked due to "suspicious activity"until I complete some security checks.
Before I do this, not having seen it before, I'd like to check it's genuine.
Can anyone advise?

I'm not aware of any captcha screens that are part of melodeon.net.

Attached is the lockout screen. After confirming this, there was a grid with car pictures to select squares containing a car, and then another screen at which I decided to abort the process until I knew a bit more.

I was connecting from a major corporate network (details by IM if required).

It's a new one to me.  I believe imunify is something that can be installed on a server.  I will enquire.

It is genuine security check Malcolm, from the server firewall. 

What is the IP address you were using?  I can get it checked to see what triggered the check.

Thanks Theo,

I guess the lock out was timed, and I have been allowed back in from this site, but after a few accesses I see a Captcha screen which progressively delays access.
I don't know the IP because it's corporate, but will post again if I get locked out again.

If you let me know next time you are logged in from work I can get your IP address from the forum.
