State Sponsored hacking?


So yesterday my site got hit by a large number(140) of Chinese IP addresses  all trying to login to my site.

Fail2 ban blocked them and sent me lots of emails:

Then this morning another pile of Chinese IP addresses ( over 100 ) attempted to login to my email server:

Fail2ban blocked those too.

Then this afternoon I noticed another pattern appearing in my logs:

And guess what… it’s China again….  and soon after this rather obvious controlled bot attack the wp-login attempts started again.

Getting pretty sick and fed up of this sort of thing from China – It’s odd how the Great Firewall of China doesn’t stop hacking attempts from within the country…..
