Is someone trying to hack my Shoutcast server?

This line has appeared several times in my log today:

[SRC 46.161.27.8:2295 sid=1] SHOUTcast 1 source connection denied for user ( /*à Cookie). Bad password: mstshash=Administr

Each time the port is different.

Thx

aeh

Of course, it's suspicious activity, especially if it has appeared on your home screen multiple times. However, I'm not sure if someone is trying to hack your device or any of your accounts or if it's just an attempt to send and spread many viruses.

This is probably someone running an exploit kit to see what they can find.
Probably you are a random target.

this particular exploit is not against Shoutcast servers and, apart from logging, is not going to cause a problem for your Shoutcast.

If you run RDP and have it exposed to Internet then it could be a problem.

I suggest you treat it as a reminder to check what can be reached from Internet and things like default password, patches etc.

could also be a netcrawler , but in any case don't worry about it if your computer is protected by a firewall.
Seen this years ago already in my stats when i was still streaming.
