timl Posted March 28, 2006 Share Posted March 28, 2006 My site was recently compromised via directories with open permissions set by the Limbo CMS. Also there are some password security concerns which allowed a person to get to the CMS backend which I have taken care of. This is a Mambo CMS written in PHP. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for PHP security. I realize now that my directories were very open, allowing anyone to write php files to directories. I have corrected these. Also, is there a way to limit which countries hit my site? The hackers were apparently from Vietnam (thats what came up when I googled the "tag" name they put in my content). Are there logs I can look at to see what IP address was at my site and lock it out from there? Sorry I am a newbie to site maintainance.
