Security breach? slow/unable to log into web panel today


#1

I noticed some potential security concerns on my site. (Someone hitting my site 75 times from the Los Angeles area and going to every page and staying on only 0 seconds on each page.)

I wanted to let DH know. I am unable to log into the web panel. Is anyone else experiencing slow log-in?

Are you seeing this in your server logs?

That’s a pretty common thing though. Websites are public-facing doors to the world. It’s not uncommon for passers by to check the locks occasionally. On it’s own, it doesn’t indicate that a breech actually occurred.

Agreed, it sounds like an automated process or bot. Did you look up the IP for more specific information. Does “Someone” mean you think it was a home user from the DNS information, or could it have perhaps been a search engine bot?
