Barbarians at the gate!

Post by Keeper Dan » Tue Jul 02, 2013 12:45 am

Ah, the fun of running a marginally popular web site...
There has been a hacker attack on the main web site since yesterday afternoon. They've been trying to brute-force past the login many thousands of times over the last 30 or so hours. :roll:
Thankfully, it seems that the security systems I already had in place are working just dandy, and I can even watch them in real time bash their heads against my walls. I wish people would get a more productive hobby.
I can tell this isn't even a person trying stuff to get in, it's an automated script that's just running in the background. Some people just can't take pride even in their destructive efforts. :angry9: :x :angry4: :angry1: :angry5:

Ah, good to see the script kiddies are still as pointless and skilless as ever.

Indeed.
I think I figured out a way to stymie them for a while. I deleted my Login page from the site and made a page with a name that isn't as intuitive for logins. Now the dope will have to guess what page to even go to for their login attempts. :D
