Topic: hack attempt?

We are getting a number of hits in our forum with referring address pointing to http://1/  . On digging deeper the hits come from different ips and from what seems to be isps which include: rr.com, patmedia.net and arcor-ip.net .

Does anyone else have hits from that referrer? Is this a possible hacking attempt?

Thanks in advance.

I doubt it, simply because faking a referer does nothing tongue

My mantra is: if something or someone acts suspiciously, block them.

Whether by IP address, user agent, referrer etc is up to you, depending on the means at your disposal.

I checked out my sites, i have 20000 hits a day, no referrer like that.
