New Feature Added: Account Lockout Timer

This feature prevents brute force type guessing against BFG accounts. Passwords stored in the database are secure, and now this ensures your account (as well as your password hash) is better secured against intrusion or compromise of sensitive data.

Here's how it works:

4 invalid login attempts within a 60 second period will lockout your account for 1 minute. Additional failed attempts during this time will reset the 1 minute counter, meaning your account will be inaccessible for an entire 60 seconds following your latest failed login attempt.
