A little OT...
I recently installed a QNAP TVS-673e (8gb) for a special project upcoming.
Anyway, I'm fairly new to NAS systems generally, but managed to get this on e up and running without too much trouble.
My question is: I'm seeing a half-dozen or so security events every week or so. Usually, from Chinese IP address (if you believe those online look-up tools .?)
I've set the NAS to "ban forever" any access attempts with 5 failed login a ttempts, within 5 minutes (options are 1, 5, 10 and 30 minutes).
For IP's banned so far, they come in slightly different from each other:126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
So my question: Is there really some Chinese entity with nothing better to do that to conti nuously try to hack in my NAS?!
It's got to be random, right?
There is nothing on the NAS of any value (and practically no files at all y et). And good luck guessing my User Name and Password. At this rate, it will literally take them forever to get in.
BTW: Nice NAS. I'm impressed, even though I don't fully know how to use a ll of it. :)
?? (That's supposedly "Thanks" in Chinese. :)
