Web Site Security

I`ve been alerted to some attempted break ins to the web site through our own track and trace features. Seems someone is trying some very simple scripts to pop up an alert message into the system.

This in itself isn`t a major worry as the bulk of the website is protected by script injection. We will however, provide an update and do further checking to ensure that nobody breaks in.

It comes as no surprise that every website has attempted break ins, though for the bulk of many sites there is no valuable information kept.

It may come as a surprise but we have several thousand blocked IP`s we have picked up over the last 2 years. Hackers do try every attempt to break in. On the first detection we block a web site IP address so that they don`t get any chance to repeatedly attack our sites.
