Bot IP alerts

Postby dennisth19 » Mon Jan 25, 2016 11:51 am

Hi,

i get several notifications from akeeba admintools firewall, that even if i added the ip from gtranslate to the whitelist, therefore it creates an alert:

=================================================
IP Address: 94.23.220.123 (IP Lookup: IP Lookup)
Reason: Admin Query String

If this kind of security exception repeats itself, please log in to your site's back-end and add this IP address to your Admin Tools's Web Application Firewall feature in order to completely block the misbehaving user.
=================================================

But at the same time when the bot visits my site, i get also a notification, that another ip (it changes) at the same time is trying to access my site. In the exact same time. So gtranslate also uses other bots as it seemes as well?


For example the alert for this kind of bot:

=================================================
IP Address: 142.4.213.25 (IP Lookup: IP Lookup)
Reason: Spammer (via HTTP:BL)

If this kind of security exception repeats itself, please log in to your site's back-end and add this IP address to your Admin Tools's Web Application Firewall feature in order to completely block the misbehaving user.
=================================================

Hi,

You should unblock 94.23.220.123 IP address. Since the request is being passed trough our server you will see our IP address instead of visitor's real IP address. You can use X-Real-IP header to see visitor's IP address.

Hi,
142.4.213.25 IP address is not our address.

Hi,

each time i get the firewall alert with the ip from you, i also get in the same time an other alert with different ips. This is no coincidence. This must be related with your bot. Please re-check it with Edvard. Thanks

Hi,

All the requests for translated versions are being passed through our proxy IP address which you see on your side. We also send the real visitor IP address, so firewall software can detect the real visitor IP address. You need to talk to your firewall provider.

Thanks!
