Epic introduced a login attempt limit to its authorization service.
- If it detects an abnormal number of successful logins (5 or more) from a single IP address and within a specific time period (60 seconds), it triggers an extra step to its authorization procedure.
- If it detects an abnormal number of failed login attempts (5 or more) from a single IP address and within a specific time period (60 seconds), it triggers a Captcha request on all future login attempts.
The captcha request is lifted automatically after a few minutes.
The newest gizmo plugin now takes into account the above conditions.
- Condition A is automatically handled by Gizmo.
- Condition B requires user input to complete the login. Gizmo will now autofill username and pass. The user needs to click the login button and resolve the captcha.
Please note that this information could change at any time in the future.
