Somebody is really knocking on the door currently to get into my ubb site.
My cpanel error logs are full with bad url attempts.
Kinda got me worried since they don't appear to give up.
So far everything seems okay.

How many distinct IPs are involved? Could be a lonely script kiddy or a pissed off member.

If only a couple IPs, an update to your iptables would keep them out. If a lot of different IPs are involved, then I'd be more worried as it could be someone with a bot net at their disposal, or they are at least advanced enough to spoof the IP. You'd never be able to keep up with it without some scripting of your own.

Good luck.
