Not Solved [Security] Same group of IP's showing up on forum viewing list 24/7
#1
Not Solved
Can anyone please explain a new ‘thing’ happening on the forum I moderate. A week or so ago, I was surprised to see about 30 IP addresses originating in France all looking at the ‘No Permissions’ page. I checked the IP’s – they all seemed to come from the same place. These same IP’s seem to have taken up permanent residence; varying between 18 to 25 IP’s every day, for the last week, now reading posts. Do I need to be concerned or; is it a routine event? Is there any way of working out what they are; or, better yet, how to get rid of them?

One of the current 15; all from the same location.

if you really want to ban IPs you can do so in ACP, by range if needed. I would not rush to do this though. The IPs may be legitimate bots crawling your site - which can be helpful for traffic.

What goes around comes around
