    Default Bombed by Millions of Security Alerts

    The RED ZA Security Alert dialog box came up and is being pounded by literally millions of requests by: SMceMan Module. I learned by experience today that the ZA Security Alert will accept 500 attempts before it filps over to a new dialog box. The dialog boxes would fill up and change to a new one in a heartbeat. It was the same program again and again. SMceMan Module.

    One thing that I noticed was that when it was tired of attempting to get into one program it would go to another and begin pounding on the new one. Within a period of ten minutes or so there were literally millions of attempts to use dozens different programs.

    I have heard the expression "Brute Force Attack" and it makes me wonder if this may have been what was happening?
