I have my bush hog web site that normally gets a few hits every week.....some weeks larger than others...but nothing crazy. Well I happened to look at the google analytics page on it tonight and I have had 669 hits from Russia in the past 30 days. Slightly more than I had from the USA in the same period. Just really strange I would be getting hits like this from that country. I looked at the city locations and it is from around 76 cities. So looks like it is not one person in one town hitting it.......just concerned someone is some how trying to get at my personal info.....any thoughts or experiences on this???

I would be very suspicious. Is there anyway that they can connect to your computor through the web site? You may need to change your passwords. Good Luck, Rick

Either something funny is going on or you've been discovered by the Russian Bush Hog owners group,my money is on the first option.

I would be very careful about any personal information related to that site.  No links to any of your other sites or things like that.  The hackers can put any City and/or name they wish with their computers, just like they can with caller ID on a phone.  Ever get a phone call from your own name and phone number?  No one answers, just dead air?  Checking to see what days and times you answer the phone.  I have had two of these myself.  Non traceable number and nothing the phone company can/will do about it (Frontier).  Any way you can put a block on any foreign country accessing your web site except like Canada?

You would be amazed at the hits you will get from other countries and even the US that have nothing to do with actually trying to visit the site. Most of it is ping attempts to see if anything is at the ip address, then they do port scanning looking for open doors to gain access and use a server for mail relaying / spamming. We get thousands of hits a day from places that you can pretty much deem are up to no good.

 

If you track the stats over time you will notice it goes in waves too. It's really not much to worry about unless the server is insecure.

Anything from Russia is up to no good! That place is totally corrupted, ask my wife , she is from there! And you will need some pretty good measures to keep them bums out....

Your absolutely correct.  And they are not going to get any better the next two years either.

My site is hosted by Go-daddy. I talked to them this morning. I use their web builder services so she said I would be protected. I do use an outside link to my flickr page.....but that is the only outside link. So sounds like I am okay.....just looked at the analytics again for the past 3 days and Russia is 56% of my hits followed by the USA of 18%.....so you can see they are hitting/pinging it a pretty good bit.
