Strange entries in my log

#1 Post by boogiewoogie » 2019-10-16 09:08

My log has a lot of these after just being idle. Is someone trying to sniff and "hack" into my server?

Random port scans. You'll potentially see a lot of them if using the default ports 21 and 990 (as they are well known).

Currently, there are no known security vulnerabilities in FileZilla Server. As long as you are using the latest version and have strong credentials, relax.
