Hey all-

Got on my site this morning and noticed someone messing around a so I started to look around and noticed this line...

in my tracked refer page. Is this normal or something I should be concerned about. Just curious as the ip address doesn't belong to me but it's pointing back to my admin.php. Thanks.

I could be wrong but this looks like a cross site scripting attack - the initial IP even has a port number so it looks like that site is hosting 'tools' for the purpose or has been compromised.

Not sure how you noticed someone was messing around but if you got some sort of message from Sentinel your probably ok. If you want extra security, I added these to my htaccess some time ago, seems to block alot of attacks before they even get to sentinel

Code:
RewriteEngine on


RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^libwww [NC,OR] 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} Indy\ Library [NC,OR]
RewriteCond % _CONF [OR]
RewriteCond % tool25 [OR]
RewriteCond % cmd.txt [OR]
RewriteCond % r57shell [OR]
RewriteCond % c99 [OR]
RewriteCond % THEME_DIR
RewriteRule ^.* - [F,L]

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} .*http:\/\/.*
Rewriterule ^.* - [F]

this last part will cause issues with some legit admin functions; like verify weblinks, downloads, and maybe others... but blocks alot of XSS attacks as well
Code:
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} .*http:\/\/.* 

Rewriterule ^.* - [F]


I also use a large list of user agent blocks in .htaccess, but it's kinda old, maybe someone else has an updated one.??

I have some BIG user-agent and referrer lists but they are in a custom delimited file for use with Spam Stopper, which I'm hoping to revive again now I have developed a fully functioning remote update service (including for the module itself).

well... I noticed it because I keep a very close eye on the ip's on the site. "Generally" speaking... I don't have many people on at one time... but when I do (I drink dos XX's) ... usually the IP address is either directly allocated to their company (so the ip lookup works most of the time) or it's to an individual.

I also try to keep a close eye on the tracked ip page as I like to see what my clients are using the most and usually I can spot errors with my site pretty quick if they are hitting error pages for w/e reason.

@Spastic... thanks for providing that! Does it need to be above/below anything in particular? (Sent. is writing the ip's to the .htaccess)

@Guardian... Man... that thing sounds great... any time frame?

I would just place it after the shortlinks (if you are using) before the </IfModule> tag. If you are not using shortlinks make sure to have @ the top RewriteEngine on

The bot list I'm using is 3yr old Rolling Eyes but you can see here Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

I think 64bitguy and others have posted some more added security via htaccess examples, but I can't seem to find them atm.

Also, if you have setup your Admin HTTPAuth / Admin CGIAuth correctly I wouldn't worry to much about that tracked referrer

@ killing-hours - sorry. no time frame as I already have enough to keep me busy till 2011 with some projects that are overdue.

Good point regarding the HTTP Auth set up!!

Ah ha... I knew at some point I would make it back to this question.

What is the "HTTPAuth / Admin CGIAuth" and how should I set it up "correctly". At this point I don't have that setup precisly because I don't know how to set it up right but I would LOVE to get it going if it will make my site that much more secure. I think I played with it at one point but it blocked me from my own site so i've never really played with it since. Thanks guys!! Learn something new everday.

----------

Edit**** Tried setting it up but I got an attack of the 500. Brought my site down right in the middle of the biz day...whoops... had to get the original .htaccess that came with RN to get my site back online. I'll wait for a more detailed answer before playing with this again. Wink

ok, you'll want cgi auth, it's what i use.. The process is explained in detail here Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

skip to the part about cgi auth, if there is a step you have trouble with let us know. Basically you be creating an .staccess file and modifying your htaccess with some code you get from NukeSentinel. There is a basic sample of what you'll be adding commented out in htaccess. If you run forums you should do that part to Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Right.... I found a folder with all the pre-wiki .htmls. Got one problem though... the "HTTPAuth" link in the admin panel is not clickable. Wouldn't happen to know why would you? Thanks for the help.

Edit*** NVM... "when all else fails... RTM". Forgot which admin account I was on.
