Been getting errors tonight as well from SFS.

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


Well-known member
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.


Well-known member 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.
