Hello folks! I just freshly installed my website running openCart 3.0.3.3 and I noticed a lot of users online on suspicious URL's while my "maintenance" mode was turned on. The urls are something like "mywebsite.com.br/VAR/API.tar.gz", "mywebsite.com.br/VAR/USER.tar.gz", "mywebsite.com.br/VAR/OLD.tar.gz", "mywebsite.com.br/VAR/DB.tar.gz" etc

Are you familiar with this:

Or is it suspicious? If so, what measures can I take to protect my website? thanks!

thanks in advance

Newbie

Well, you'll get used to such access attempts, it's a near-daily task, to keep
those elements off your Site ... :laugh: I so far blocked just about 2.5k IP-Ranges. :P
The .htaccess files is beeing used for that.

Given how rapidly threats change, most should consider DDOS protection and/or a firewall to essentially set this all on auto pilot. Most don't have time to manage a list of IP addresses manually to deny requests.

Well, I'm fully aware of that, it's a lot of work, and a daily job too, to keep it up to date.

Much simpler and faster to set up CloudFlare and let them take care of it.
