Possible DoS attack? Cannot log in to account.

Over the past week, I see this message when trying to sign in to my Sbcglobal email or my AT&T account:

"Looks like you’ve tried to sign in unsuccessfully too many times. CARE CODE: 205.2 [LU003]"

However, the message appears after only one attempt, and I know I'm entering my password correctly.  It is a password that I've used for months -- one which I created when this happened a few months ago as well.  At that time, another user suggested that there was a Denial-of-Service attack - Could this be happening again?

It's not a DoS, as you've probably now seen through all of the other hundreds of posts in this forum.
