I'm in Boston, so I can't test the Cape IP address access, but I will let you know next weekend. It's the error message that references "cpane" whatever that means. In any case, thanks for your help.

I think they have some sort of security looking for nefarious activities attacking their servers. They then ban indiscriminately, and let the folks they host sort it out.

there actually is all sorts of signs of nefarious activity filling up the server log (not from you.. just in genera i mean... lots of very suspicious activity associated with accounts that haven't been active for a long time)


most it i don't eve know what to make of it....something or someone has been attempting to highjack the board's email function i think. the last time this happened we ended up on a bunch of blacklists and i had to make a bunch of phone calls write a bunchof emails to get off us off the lists... because pretty much exactly what you just aid was happening

so it appears pwd's problems is directly related to the percent sign error 406 problem


which i'm pretty sure is directly related to the suspicos activity in the error log with the board email


if anyone cares, the error 406 is due to an Apache module called mod_security. This is a module that acts as an Apache firewall – it blocks a lot of the usual routes that people use to hack websites. In particular it scans POST requests ... hose problems occur because of invalid characters or sequence of characters in an HTTP POST.

It appears that mod_security, if configured aggressively, can cause a lot of problems. I assume someone, a hacker or bot... found some sort of backdoor security exploit and is trying to use our board to send out spam emails from webmaster@savedbythebellhorn.com

im going to try to override the firewall settings in the .htaccess file and then deal with the sketchy email problem separately

Do you have an .htaccess file in place to block special characters? I didn't see the IP addy PWD posted in the banned IP logs.

i'd rathernot say whats in the htaccess file for security reasons. but to answer your specific question, no. mod_security is being triggered in the apache server... they server must have turned it on as high as goes because phpbb sucks and they think our website is a virus on society lol


i'm trying to over-ride the mod_security modle from getting triggered by adding this code to the .htaccess file
<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>


but it's not working. i think i need to contact the web host and ask them to change the configration


for some reason it's blocking the percent sign in posts, and PWD's ip address specifically lol..althogh i dont see it in the error log. i don't see any 406 errors either


it's random as fuck lo

i did notice this... im not sre if this was before or after i blocked china... and i have no fucking explanation for why these sites are referring here or why they were trying to access those files..

Image


i'm guessing this might have something to do with the firewall settings beting turned up to high

well this is interesting.

our bandwidth usage went from 323.07 MB (MEGABYTES) in September 2018
then 7.46 GB(GIGBYTES) the next month - october 2018
and 5.25 GB this month

Image



soooo... now to find out what caused our bandwidth to jump like 15,000 PERCENT in one month.
