How to protect wordpress against xmlrpc-attack.

onsdag, oktober 22nd, 2014

Lately we have seen a huge increase in attacks against xmlrpc.php in wordpress-installations. This creates problems for other clients on the hosting servers, and for yourself.

To protect yourself against this you can use the following guide: (See «bruteforce against xmlrpc.php».)

Add a .htaccess-file to the directory with wordpress (and xmlrpc.php) in it, copy the lines mentioned in the wiki-article into the .htaccess-file and your xmlrpc.php should be protected against any attacks.

Network issues 09.10.2014

torsdag, oktober 9th, 2014

On thursday 09.10.2014 we experienced some unfortunate network issues on our network which resulted in packet loss and slow connection for our webhosting and virtual server-clients.

The problems lasted from 21:30 to 23:45.

This problem was caused by extreme amounts of unwanted traffic, which unfortunately took a long time to resolve due to some technical issues. The cause of the problems have been identified and permanently fixed.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these problems, and we can assure you that we are taking all steps necessary to prevent this from happening again.

Contact Host1 support if you have any questions regarding this issue.
