What happens if the hacker/bot tries to get into your account when you're already logged in?

I have started getting those "you have logged in with the wrong password too many times" messages again (after logging in just once), even though I changed to a new password which temporarily solved the problem.

It's still happening - the last 2-3 times I've logged in.

Yes, there was a pause ... and now the mechanism that provokes those messages has started again.

Btw: You should use good passwords, but changing a good one to another good one doesn't in itself help you against our common enemy out there. Each time you log into the forum the 'thing' can try a few new guesses, but thanks to the limit nothing that really amounts to much. The main purpose of the attack seems to be to make our access more cumbersome in the hope that we give up and become silent.

I only noticed this today. I had a long fight to log in. I hope this can be defeated soon.

Had to answer several captchas just now even though I answered correctly.
