Authorisation tries from 94.23.169.106

6 years 9 months ago #2064 by medyk8ns
Hello,
I've just checked my authorisation.log and found that some strange IP tries to login to my EasyIoT website. Does anybody else have same issue? It looks like somebody(or something) is trying to guess my admin password.
Here are a few lines from log:
11-08-2015-22-01-08 [94.23.169.106]  user:[admin]  authentication failed: authentication failure
11-08-2015-22-01-09 [94.23.169.106]  user:[admin]  authentication failed: authentication failure
11-08-2015-22-01-09 [94.23.169.106]  user:[admin]  authentication failed: authentication failure
11-08-2015-22-01-09 [94.23.169.106]  user:[admin]  authentication failed: authentication failure
11-08-2015-22-01-09 [94.23.169.106]  user:[admin]  authentication failed: authentication failure

This is to be expected when you expose a commonly used port to the public internet.

If you need to do this, I recommend configuring your nat so that a non-standard port is used for the external access - eg: 2659 instead of 80.

like @markusonfire says this is usual, when you have port open to public. I recommend you to use fail2ban.

So I've installed fail2ban, and the only problem is that authorisation.log from EasyIoT has wrong timestamp format. So fail2ban is unable to work. How can I change auothorisation.log timestamp format(on RPI)?
Edit: Timestamp in log is fixed in new version, see here
