Forum Attacked Again

Recommended Posts

While Andy and myself were away on our holidays the Forum came under attack from a computer based in Australia. They employed software that used up 98% of our total bandwidth for the month. One again we have had to spend more money to get the Forum back online.

We are currently searching for the culprit. What we do know is that the person responsible was using the IP 59.106.128.138

59.106.128.138

The Project Honey Pot system has detected behavior from the IP address consistent with that of a spam harvester. Below we've reported some other data associated with this IP. This interrelated data helps map spammers' networks and aids in law enforcement efforts.

A spam harvester can read through the pages in your site and extract email

addresses which are then added to bulk marketing databases. The result: more spam

Thanks John.
