Discussion Hetzner security warning


Respected Member
So a while ago I moved to a hetzner do server. I received the following email within the first week

So to me that seemed like I had a port open that needed closing. So I ran port guard and expected the problem to be fixed. However I just received the same email again so I'm now stuck and unsure how to fix the issue.

Any ideas?

I get these all the time. Don't worry about it. It is the anti-DDOs system kicking in and telling you about it. If your server didn't hang or die, all is good.
