    Hi guys,

    Not sure what section to put this in but hopefully someone may have seen this before.

    We currently have an IP from Google (apparently) trying to log in to our secure members area on one of our sites. There have been 225 attempts so far.

    The login method is via a single PIN, so not the usual username and password.

    I am thinking either this is some kind of strange manual review of the site, including some kind of security check (although never heard of anything like this before and we are not in the process of being pen tested), or it's some kind of proxy/google fibre although I'm not sure why that would come back as originating from Mountain View.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
