Should I be worried? Log activity

Post by user11 » Mon Aug 29, 2016 1:14 pm

Recently, I noticed some unusual activity in my logs, most of which got 404 message. But long story short, this is the only one that got 200
"POST /libraries/joomla/user/user.php HTTP/1.0" 200 0 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US) U2/1.0.0 UCBrowser/"
Ip is from GoDaddy ISP. I banned the ip but was wondering whether or not I should unblock it because I do have the domain registered there.

Is this a normal activity or not?

Thanks for your replies in advance.

A bot is likely testing for an exploit. Just make sure your site is up to date and ideally secured with akeeba admin tools or RS firewall.

Many thanks

As you are posting in the Joomla 1.5 forum then yes you should be worried.
