Really i have to be rude now but wtf are you guys thinking.
Changegin the admin port to something else would eliminate anything ? really?
Full time. How 'bout you?
is IT your fulltimejob or just your hobby?
You're making my point for me. They are automated stupid systems. The simplest of measures is enough to thwart virtually all of them. Do you think these infected systems scan all 65000 TCP ports on every public IP address? Try 2 or 3.
truth is 99% of all attacks comes from automated systems, worms and so on. many of em using exposed unsecure server.
And changing my admin port makes your server more insecure somehow? How?
so in many way this kind of lack of knowlege dont even make your lifes harder by hacked and exposed systems but everyone elses because your server will be the next one attacking mine, or spamming mine to shit or whatever
It is a rather obvious improvement, that was requested years ago and should be easy to implement.
and best part is you blame here zimbra for an old unusefuill enahncement.
You can, if the firewall lets you. Most do, but cloud firewalls are pretty primitive.
you can those secure by firewall because amdin is just an different url
No one has said that it is a primary method of securing a Zimbra server. IMHO, though, it's more that a nice to have feature, it is a should have one.
btw if you want to obscure change admin admin account, best you cann do as an additional messure but not the primary - primary is firewalling - damit.
