Multiple Failed Logins "Admin"

Post by spaceboyo » Tue Oct 22, 2019 1:34 am

Hi All

I have a strange one, just recently my home NAS has been recording multiple "Failed to log in via user account "admin". Source IP address: 81.145.***.**"
The IP address is my office and the failed logins only happen when I'm there, the only device that I think it can be is my iPhone which has QManager, Qfile etc installed on it?

Can anyone shed some light on it or point me in the right direction to start looking?

Thanks in advance.

if you expose your NAS to the open internet, the strange thing would be, how you don't have ton's of different IP's trying to gain access

Never expose your QNAP directly to the internet.. too many people had their NAS hacked and data encrypted lately

Remove any port forward, disable uPnP and use a VPN to access your NAS
