Why does this page mean GitHub is experiencing security issues?

I didn't know this page existed. Its pretty handy, though I don't like how it shows failed logins. 6 attempts in the past 24 hours unnerves me. Probably trying my email and my use-all password from vBulletin or one of the numerous other sites which have been broken into.

Check your previous history. You probably don't have many failed attempts before the past 24 hours. It seems to be some sort of botnet attack.
