Suspicious attemots to log in to website
Posted on 2014-07-17
Hi, I'm running a County government website (using the DNN CMS). (Actually several websites)
The website only allows log in for a few administrators to update their content.
I noticed, starting yesterday, that every hour or so, there is a failed attempt to log in to the site. Each attempt uses a different username and comes from a different IP addess. I've done a "Who Is" on the IP addresses and they seem to come from various locations. One of the locations is:
OrgName: RIPE Network Coordination Centre
Address: P.O. Box 10096
And there are others as well.
Any idea how I should deal with this to protect the site?
