    my mate tries to login today and did something so he had to enter his password twice. but when he tries to login he gets this error:

    bruteforce detected. wait 3600 seconds or enter captcha.

    when he does fill in that captcha nothing works. how can we fix this? or is it a serverside error

    hello there.

    brute force (also known as brute force cracking) is a trial and error method used by application programs to decode encrypted data such as passwords or data encryption standard (des) keys, through exhaustive effort (using brute force) rather than employing intellectual strategies. just as a criminal might break into, or "crack" a safe by trying many possible combinations, a brute force cracking application proceeds through all possible combinations of legal characters in sequence. brute force is considered to be an infallible, although time-consuming, approach.

    your friend need to check if keyboard language setup didn't change, or maybe he have capslock.
