    I got an email today advising me that someone had tried to log into my account unsuccessfully 5 times.
    Anyone else have the problem? Not sure if I should be changing my password now just in case?

    Yes, there were a few people earlier today who had the same thing.

    I think the IP was posted and tracked to a user who is now banned.

    Nope, I didn't. But someone must have actually tried to access your account by using different passwords so you might need to change your password to something even better which couldn't be guessed in case if the current one is simple to decrease the chances of allowing the person to get access.

    This is advice that should be observed for any site or account from an email or for that matter, skype or any other IM convo you have.

    If i get an email telling me something, even if I know the site the email has come from, I always open my browser, use my bookmark and log into my account as normal and find my way to whatever feature is advertised.
