Default Someone hacking my account

I keep getting this email

"Dear viperbabe35,

Someone has tried to log into your account on Jeep Cherokee Forum with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 107.4.228.244

All the best,
Jeep Cherokee Forum"

sometimes with different IP addresses, does this mean someone is trying to hack my account? if so what do i do about it?

It looks like someone is trying to hack it, have you told mods?

It could simply be that someone has forgotten their username. A hacker prolly would know what he/she was doing and not have to try for 3 days ...
