Stop hackers and bots now
BotFence™ automatically blocks IP addresses with hacking attempts on your windows server services (rdp, FTP, SQL-Server) using the Windows firewall.
If your Windows server is accessible from the internet and you want certain services like remote desktop, FTP transfers or SQL-Server to be available from outside then hacking attempts on your server will definitely be made. Numerous automated hacking tools, called "bots" are active on the internet. They scan IP address ranges for published services and when they find FTP, RDP or SQL-Server services active they will try hundreds or even thousands of frequently-used passwords. "Administrator" (rdp) and "sa" (superuser for SQL-Server) are the most targeted accounts. As long as the bots don't guess your passwords right you'll probably never know about them, apart from the high server load caused by the thousands of login attempts. We have a free tool that you can use to scan your server logs for hacking attempts to find out if you are a target as well: AttackTracer
In Windows Server systems the Windows extended firewall would be the ideal tool to block the IP-Addresses of these bots trying to get in. But the firewall doesn't automatically list the IP-Addresses of these bots.
We created BotFence to solve exactly this problem. The software runs as a Windows background service and monitors RDP, FTP und SQL-Server events for failed logins. If a configurable number of failed login events is detected from the same IP address BotFence dynamically lists that IP address in the Windows firewall as blocked. In addition BotFence uses heuristics to detect attacks from botnets, distributed computers running a coordinate attack on your servers.
You can view BotFence live on our own servolutions.com webserver.
You may be surprized to find out the countries from where the attacks originate.
