Access denied to certain IP addresses

The main Sunward site, and affiliated sites, will now deny access to certain IP's address (Internet Protocol).  Most of these are based in China.

We did this after monitoring repeated and consistent attacks on the Sunward server.  The attacks were attempts to access pages with administrator privileges.

In addition, we have also restricted the use of some email accounts that were used in other attacks. Most of these are also based in China.

We will not publish the list of the IP's and emails sites and they can change at any time.

At no time was the server or information on the server accessed.  Hardware firewalls, monitoring,  software firewalls, and strong passwords have been effective.
