I have been getting a lot of traffic from Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! IP addresses. Should I be worried about these users? They are all from other countries. So far I haven’t seen any bans made for hack attempts.

At the macro level? No. At the micro level? Very likely. You need to look at what they are doing when they visit your site. You can use NukeSentinel's(tm) tracked IP Listing and/or examine your server access logs.

I was looking through some of the tracking and I found this link with the text following it.

I dont have no such content on my site. It also seams like most of the rest start the Registration process but never finish the last step.

My guess would be that they are/were just testing to see if they could directly post/submit an article to your site. Had they been able to do so then they would either have spammed your site with junk or they would take their penetration testing to the next level, eventually trying/hoping to reach their ultimate destination - some kind of destruction.

A few of them also had links that the took me to a forums topic called (Information) which says its locked and cant be posted in. But, when I go to the forums Admin I dont see that topic. Can you tell me what that would be all about?

Thanks for the information and help by the way. Your site is really great!

(Information) just means there's an error message.

Note: RIPE is just a network for European addresses. It is not an ISP itself. You are not being attacked by them. More than likely, a malicious user is using a botnet to control compromised systems to do their dirty work.

After doing some more research on these Ripe users I seen this is a common problem with these users using bots to attack and try to spam sites. I would prefer not to have them wasting my bandwidth and running my stats up with crap.

Is there a way to block all users from this company?

Just as an FYI, it's not really a company Smile

Imo, that would be extreme overkill but you're the boss Wink - I did a Google search on How to ban all RIPE network addresses and there are several hits. The first one seems to be an excellent discussion.

Raven,

Thanks Raven. I guess I'm just still upset that the last site I tried to host got taken over before I could even get it off the ground. I followed the install instructions to the letter this time on how to secure the site.

Nothing against your site but, when I made the mistake of posting my site's URL here for help. All hell broke lose as I think they use help forums like these to find there next victims.

They scan anything that is open to public view. My personal take on it is I let Sentinel do its job and I scan my access logs and zap the gnats and bugs the best I can. Banning China will certainly cut down your exposure. Just keep in mind that IP spoofing will allow them to come right back in. That's why it's so hard to really ban someone who wants in. Spoofing is easy and widespread, mostly due to all the windows users that don't bother to update their machines Wink

Where is this "Server Access Log" please?

Most hosts provide such access via your account control panel. I would log into your hosting account control panel and look for server logs. If you cannot find them, I would ask your host as to how you may review the access logs for your account.
