    Been getting errors tonight as well from SFS.

    Anthony: Why botscout? What makes them better than SFS?

    Botscout has been around for a good long while and are for real, I do believe they have a better platform than SFS to be honest, although SFS is good too.

    apache@localhost... lol..

    Could be a ddos attack I suppose, or maybe they just have some random problems.

    www.projecthoneypot.org is constantly attacked by spammers and hackers, they even publish a page listing the IP's of the attacks against them.

    When you expose spammers and hackers you place a bullseye on your back, so this can be expected.

    You need a great software firewall (mod security) and some great server admins to stay online in the anti-spam business.

    Going over the connection limit does not mean they were hacked :p

    And the apache@localhost stuff is just each call to mysql_query trying to connect to the default server specified in php.ini, since the proper connection failed.

    Should have it for you in an hour or so. It doesn't see to be that hard.
