Every time a user logs in they are automatically blocked. When I enable them again they login once and it disables them again.

It's making it impossible for my staff to get any work done. It's occurring on multiple sites.

    That's not Joomla core behavior. What non-core extensions do you use? Do you use Akeeba Admin Tools or any other security related extension?

  • Yes Admin Tools.

With Admintools it keeps a history of banned IP's as well as the currently banned IP's. If you check the #__admintools_ipbanhistory table via phpMyadmin or whatever you use you will probably see the people or their IP's listed. I have found clearing this table of the entries has solved a similar issue that I have had in the past.
