Hack attempts

Post by bradjo » Fri Sep 07, 2012 1:03 am

Hey guys;
I'm not sure where to post this so if this is the wrong place please move or delete and let me know. Anyway I've been getting a large number of this in my logs:

Thu Sep 06 14:03:31 2012] [error] [client from russia] File does not exist: /path to phpbb/index.php+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Result:+this+IP+is+banned+-+changing+proxy+1+one;+using+proxy+XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:81;+no+post+sending+forms+are+found;,

I'm on the most current version but this is worrying me. What is he best way to handle this?
Thank you,
Jo

That's just a spambot, it's nothing to worry about.

This is the phpBB Development board. You want the phpBB Support Board next time.
