Everyone or almost everyone has heard about the hacking, spam attacks, denial of service attacks etc.  Believe it or not our Church web site is being attacked with attempts to break in and do whatever it is the bad guys want to do.  We have taken precautions, including disabling the common and default User accounts and using passwords that are virtually impossible to crack.

If the attacks continue I will take another step, mainly because I am tired of all the email notifications that someone has tried and failed to get into the administrative sections.  My next step will be to deny connectivity from ALL of the known internet addresses in China, Russia, Ukraine, etc.  which is where 99% of these attacks are originating from.  Yes I do have that list, it is public information if you know where to look.
