It took me a few seconds to realize that hackers (actually Script Kiddies from Canada, Italy, and Morocco) were trying to get into an Adobe Cold Fusion server that I monitor for a client. Unfortunately for them, they lack the ports information needing to find it on the server as it seems the idiots were only trying port 80 (which is public) and alerted me to their actions.
If you have such a server, avoiding port 80 and port 8500 would be the sensible thing to do as those port are well known to everyone, including exploiters. Don’t think your server will be found? Well, I have bad news for you. Search Engines, like Google and Bing, will bring them right to your doorstep with a query of inurl:”/CFIDE/administrator/” and if you do not believe me, ask yourself, how did I locate this page?
