We've seen an increased interest from guests on the community recently. It looks to be some form of probing attack probably based on SQL injection through the forums.

I'm just posting this as a convenient note of the IP and whois information.

So it's not something to be worried about?

Not overly. I'm concerned about the number of guest hits increasing but it's not to the state that it's a denial of service attack nor any number that the hosting can't currently handle. My main issue is that those guest users are taking up resources. I know a few of them are bots which I need to add to the bot database but a good number are ranged IP addresses originating in the far east. Most often though if a site is breached they're not after the data they just want to piggy back a malware installation system or even secretly host a Paypal or a Bank scam site.

Passwords wise they're all encrypted but it's always good practice if inconvenient to use different passwords for different sites.
