Dr. John and MM's possibilities--script, or a person making attempts--leads me to wonder:

Are there ways ordinary people can tell which it is? [By "ordinary people," I mean people who do not hire computer security individuals to dodetective work.]

With some of the experienced people we have here, someone might know some signs.;)

iwym but teachers historically get targeted by pupils. In either scenario, I recommend the two step process.

Or it could just be a script that accesses page after page and hits your login as it works its way through things.
It's not usually a person deliberately trying to get at you, but an automated attack hitting thousands in the hope of one success.

Someone has been trying to hack into my accounts online. I know this because I have set up two step authentication for resetting passwords and I have received several e-mails and texts tonight. This is not the first time this has happened. So far the two-step authentication has worked. :(
