    chinese hackers

    Noticed in event logs a lot of MSFTPSVC system events with The server was unable to logon the Windows NT account 'test' due to the following error: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. Also the same with user administrator.

    Eventually we got a timeout message for IP address 222.35.138.117 putting this into google comes up with CHINA RAILWAY TELECOMMUNICATIONS CENTER and warnings about hackers!

    Have now disabled the ftp publishing service on this server - not sure why it was enabled anyway and warned embc internet providers about the IP address.

    Posting as a warning for others if you have ftp service enabled.

    Cheers Mark

    Wouldn't worry about it too much; that IP has been infected/utilised for some time; the first google result to Absolute Zero talks about it from back in October.

    I suppose again looking at that link it reckons it tried to authenticate 1650 times ... why on earth had a firewall with port triggering not dealt with it by then is beyond me!
