Banning SSH Abusers

Nov 15, 2007

About a week ago I got logs from the server that looked like this:

unknown ( 5112 Time(s)
unknown ( 5005 Time(s)
unknown ( 662 Time(s)
root ( 657 Time(s)

I then turned on the brute force protection cPanel provides, and it went down considerably from there. I'm not concerned at all about it (since the passwords are strong), but I would like to know the best way to determine abusive users (of SSH), and the best way to ban them.

Assuming the server does not have APF installed, or any particular control panel...

Bash Script - IP Banning With Iptables

Apr 28, 2009

my VPS provided didn't enable a lot of modules and that's why I can use a firewall(csf or apf) and dos deflate script

I need a simple script for it.

First,it has to call this:
netstat -ntu | awk '{print $5}' | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq -c | sort -n
then there will be something like:
Number : IP address
and then the bash script has to bann IPs with more than 30 connections(In our case: and with this:
iptables -A INPUT -s IP_FOR_BLOCK -j DROP

VBulleting Is Triggering Mod_security Rule And Banning People

Jun 23, 2008

I installed mod_security and the 403security rules on my VPS (Centos 4.1, Release version of WHM).

Several vBulletin files, including the ajax quick editor and some add-ons are triggering this rule and banning members' IPs in CSF:

# Restrict witch content encodings we accept.
# TODO Most applications support only two encodings for request bodies
# because that is all browsers know how to produce. If you are using
# automated tools to talk to the application you may be using other
# content types and would want to change the list of supported encodings.
# Note though that ModSecurity parses only three content encodings:
# application/x-www-form-urlencoded, multipart/form-data request and
# text/xml. The protection provided for any other type of encoding is
# inferior.
# TODO There are many applications that are not using multipart/form-data
# encoding (typically only used for file uploads). This content type
# can be disabled if not used.
# NOTE We allow any content type to be specified with GET or HEAD
# because some tools incorrectly supply content type information
# even when the body is not present. There is a rule further in
# the file to prevent GET and HEAD requests to have bodies to we're
# safe in that respect.
# NOTE Use of WebDAV requires "text/xml" content type.
# NOTE Philippe Bourcier (pbourcier AT citali DOT com) reports
# applications running on the PocketPC and AvantGo platforms use
# non-standard content types:
# M-Business iAnywhere application/x-mal-client-data
# UltraLite iAnywhere application/octet-stream
SecRule REQUEST_METHOD "!^(?:get|head|propfind|options)$"
"chain, t:lowercase, deny,log,auditlog,status:501,msg:'Request content encoding is not allowed by policy',id:'960010',severity:'4'"
SecRule REQUEST_HEADERS:Content-Type "!(?:^(?:application/x-www-form-urlencoded$|multipart/form-data;)|text/xml)"
I don't know how to decipher this rule to know if just removing it is ok, or if it is serving an important purpose. During a couple hour period it was enabled, that rule only seemed to trigger false alarms.

The above was triggered with calls such as [uri "/forums/ajax.php?do=usersearch"] and [uri "/forums/newreply.php?do=postreply&t=11057"]

What I really don't understand is that I have an .htaccess in place to turn off mod_security for the /forums directory:

<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
I have also had this rule triggered today when someone tried to access : ...

Listing/banning Ipv6 Addresses From Netstat Output

Jan 19, 2008

I've been happily banning ip's using the output from

netstat -plan|grep :80|awk {'print $5'}|cut -d: -f 1|sort|uniq -c|sort -nk 1

for over a year now, with iptables. However recently, after upgrading to apache 2.2, the connections in netstat get listed as ipv6. A row can look like this for example:

tcp6 0 0 ::ffff: ::ffff:12.123.12.:12382 ESTABLISHED-

(actual ip addresses changed)

As you can see, the remote ip address isn't complete, it's cut off, so the script used to sum up connections and insert into iptables isnt doing anything.

Host Outside My Own Country

Nov 2, 2008

Just joined sitepoint forums so Hi everybody

I am very new to web design and have been messing around making mock sites and would like to get some of them live so I can get experience with using host's and get some reviews on my basic designs.

I have just relocated to New Zealand and it seems pretty steep on pricing for hosting companies so can I use hosting companies outside of NZ.

What would be the disadvantages if any?

I am not after anything special like loads of bandwidth or storage.

Blocking A Country

Apr 14, 2007

I had a few sites hacked today. I'm using phpbb (all updates) and, apparently, the only thing they did was to drop the database and replace it with one featuring a single post "advertising" their hacker group. I tried bringing everything back on-line, but they would just attack again and take it down quickly... I'm thinking it's probably just some script kiddies.

They announce themselves as "turkish hackers". Browsing around for their message, I found they attacked quite a few sites. What I was thinking, to help preventing this from happening again, is to ban all visitors from Turkey (none of these sites has a need for them, as they're aimed at a local audience).

Can I do this simply by using "deny from .tr" in htaccess? Or are there any more steps to be taken?

Server With PA/PI IPs (Own Netname + Country)

Oct 25, 2009

Are there hosters that do that?

Best would be European.

i know that i.e. Hetzner gives you PA Space with your own Netname ("netname:" field) (maybe also own Adress) but they dont allow to change the "country:" field, and it stays "DE"

I would like to have a block of 8/16/32 IPs with own "Netname:" field, and own "Country:" field (or as Countrycode "CN", "HK", "AG", "BS" or "KY")

Could Provide P.O. Boxes in all that countrys if needed.

The Server behind it does not really matter, location should be not Germany and not USA (cant comply with some Laws in this 2 Countrys) - something like 1Ghz CPU, 80Gb HDD, 512Mb Ram is enough - 100Mbit (or 10Mbit Burstable) with ~350Gb Traffic.

What Country To Locate This VPN Server In

Oct 21, 2007

I am in the process of setting up a VPN server for a client who lives in a Middle Eastern country.

He will be using the VPN for all his internet surfing, email access, etc. (So the VPN will be his internet gateway. His local ISP connection will only be used to make the VPN connection.)

The majority of his internet surfing through the VPN will be to US websites.

Where is the best place to locate the VPN server? I have two datacenters available to choose from: USA or UK

Block All Visitors From Country X

Oct 5, 2007

I have experianced a number of attacks all from a specific country.

I would like to completely block access to all users from that country.

I realize that this is not fool proof because people from that country could still use a proxy.

I also realize that people in that country that are not hackers would not be able to access my web site but for the time being I still want to put this in place.

I use Linux / Cpanel / Apache. I have iptables installed.

Is there any way I can block all access to people from the problem country?

If You're On Different IP Range, Then How

Let's say when i first joined the datacenter, i'm given some 16 IPs from 123.123.123.*.

Now that i need more IPs, and they have to give me IPs from 123.123.124.*, am i right to say i need a new switch?

Now is it possible that i link up the new switch together, so that both switch can pick up any available IPs from either range?

Blocking A Country Using Browser Language

Nov 3, 2008

I got a list of IPs from the country i want to block from and i added them to my .htaccess as I have no access to PF or IP tables firewall.

I am concerned about the server load if I get too many requests from that country to access the webpage, I have been told of a better solution, blocking someone based on the browser language they use, for example for China that is "zh-CN" but I don't know how to implement this and I have not been able to find it through Google, help with this appreciated.

Second thing, anyone knows what happens when someone attempts to access a webpage from a blocked IP? Do they get a "Page not found" or "your IP is blacklisted" message?

If I block by browser language it would be good if the blocking message does not tell the user about this

(Notice that I am aware that blocking by browser language is not a perfect solution).
