Script kiddie attack[edit]

I include the fragment of the script kiddie attack that I found on my server logs. It is a very small fragment of the whole attack script, these administration pages should be in general known to public, so I do not think that this information could be usable in preparing new attacks from scratch. Real attack begins from the attempt to bypass or otherwise crack the authentication that must be present in the administration web page; this part is not shown. Why I am not a lawyer, I think that by making this "contribution", the attacker agreed to release it under Creative Commons Share Alike license, as such are the licensing conditions of our site. For privacy reasons, the lower part of the IP address is blanked with XXX. The log is in the standard Apache Commons Combined log format. By the way, no any .php platform is running on the server that has been attacked. Audriusa (talk) 20:05, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
