32,000 logins in 1 day...?

I was viewing the top lists section, and found bvgsoft_s
at the top of the page. Out of interest, I looked at his
profile, and it displayed [b]32,798[/b] logins.

This is okay, but looking at his/her profile...

This means this user was only active for one day.

Now for the question...[b]How can a user log in 32,000
times in a single day...?[/b] Is/Was this a bug of sorts..?
It doesnt seem possible within only 24 hrs..

This question is only being asked out of curiosity.

Anyone have ideas?

Thanks,

    Oh, sure it is...you just hack up some script that calls our login page 32,000 times in quick succession. I can write you one in just a couple of minutes. Spread over 24 hours, 32,000 hits is only one request every 3 seconds or so, which wouldn't DoS the server.

    If that's what was done though...well...what a loser. I'll leave it to Tore to poke further, but it was so long back I'm not certain we'd have the server logs any more...

    Wierd!, but be some bug somewhere :-)

    I have changed his viewcounter back to 1 to make it more realistic.

    Thanks for reporting!

    PS, the toplist will not be updated until tomorrow. Its regenerated once a day).

    Also, guess I have to include some abuse stopper in the login system.
