Solved Unauthorised Forum Access by 'guest'

Post by Treemaid on February 11th 2017, 8:55 pm

Hi,

One of the sections on our forum is set to be readable only by moderators and administrators, but we have had multiple occasions of a guest viewing it. The access is happening from the same computer, but each time we ban the IP address, it comes back, with the last two figures of the IP address different.


Please see the screenie of a post made below, containing a screenie of the unauthorised access.

Could you advise as to how to prevent this happening please? I am assuming it's some sort of hacking that's happening?

It just means that a guest is looking at a page with only the message that they are not allowed to view the page and the login boxes.
