Reporting Hacking Threats?
« on: March 01, 2005, 03:27:46 PM »
Does anyone know if there is way to report threats to hack your site, or to put your site on a LP watch list for a high probability of an attempted attack?

You can do a WHOIS lookup on the Ip address and report it to the ISP.

Higala, Pete waves

Without knowing your domainname I have to guess, If your running a PhpBB forum make sure its the latest version.

Another LP customer has reported that Pmachine is now at risk of being hacked so again that needs to be updated.
Shoutbox's can also be at risk.

Oh and keep a current site backup offsite  :thumb:
That way if the worst should happen you can restore your site easily  :thumb:

do you know who it is threatening your site? if so then report them to your ISP if you know their ISP then report it to them to, or ask your ISP to pass on the message...

the biggest probability is that if their saying 'i'm gonna hack your site' then they're probably just someone who thinks they can download a program to hack sites or something... or thinks they're scaring you...
