DDOS, brute force or just simple wrong user/pass combination?


Recommended Posts

Hi friends!

Can you help me in this matter?

They pretend is a DDOS launched from Russia, China, etc.

As long as I see, the IP's are in Australia address ranges, the time between attempts is around 3sec, also, look like a simple faulty login on Cpanel.

Based on your knowledges/experience, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION? 

Thanks in advance!

These all seem to be brute-force attacks. We're blocking some of these IPs already. The ones that we are not will be blocked in the next update.

Then, I wasn't wrong in my assumptions, there was somebody trying to guess the user/pass repeatedly (since DDOS brings THOUSANDS of request/sec).

A thing you can do with 2 laptops, a TOR browser and switching TOR circuits once at 3sec when you got blocked by the server... 

Thanks a lot for your expertise!

Kind regards!
