Bad Guest Behavior

This is a new install of CMS software to run the AE site upon. I'm getting a feel for things and one thing I'm certain of is that this provides a good basis for a collaborative website.

Unfortunately, one side effect of going public early is that I now am also dealing with early cracking attempts. Someone at IP address spent a good chunk of the evening trying to get to various administration pages without authentication. One typical item from the log:

Type	access denied
Date	Wednesday, August 3, 2005 - 00:31
User	Anonymous
Location	/cs/admin/system/modules
Message	admin/system/modules denied access.
Severity	warning

So I've installed the "troll module" that gives IP banning capability here. Good-bye, Mr. Find yourself another IP address, and see if you can find your misplaced moral compass before your next visit.
