Silly Chinese hacker obsessed with numbers
The Chinese obsess with numbers, and that’s a well-known fact. Anything from “123″ to “888″ has a special meaning to the Asian nation of 1.3 billion.
This all turns to silliness, however, when a wannabe hacker from China attempted to log into our server:
IP: 126.96.36.199 (CN/China/188.8.131.52.broad.
Failures: 1 (ftpd)
[WARNING] Authentication failed for user [domaingang888]
As “888″ signifies luck, it was definitely not a lucky day for our silly friend who was instantly blocked. We also report such attempts to the respective ISP.
