Hello,

I don’t know if this is an issue or not but I repeatedly see search queries like this in my Search Terms report ...

wisdom ; x || sleep 5
wisdom ; x || sleep 3
wisdom|| sleep 5 &
wisdom|| sleep 3 &
wisdom ; x || sleep 3 &
wisdom ; x || sleep 5 &
wisdom<foo>bar</ foo>

... wisdom is part of the name of one of my products.

This looks suspicious enough to me that I think they’re probing for vulnerabilities but I can’t tell what they’re looking for exactly.

Should I be concerned about this?  I haven’t noticed any problems with my store ... yet.

I’m running on Magento Community 1.7.0.2

Thanks in advance for any feedback,
Davin

It doesn’t look too bad to me.  I’ve run the queries through my intrusion detection system and they only score a low threat rating for the XSS and CSRF attack vectors.

So ... my store was taken down today due to too many processes running. 

My host provider (hostgator) said that it was consuming 95% cpu of a shared server and they had to take my store offline because it was consuming so many resources.

Here is the email from them…

Hello,

This message is to advise you of a temporary block placed on your account. This account was found to be consuming an inordinate amount of processor time, to the point of degrading overall system performance. While we do limit each account to no more than 25% of a system’s CPU in our terms of service, we do not actively disable accounts until they greatly exceed that number, which is what happened in this case.

Requests to this scripts under this account may become degraded by limiting the abilty for scripts to run for a limited amount of time, or if the issue persists, we may be forced to restrict how fast processes can be spawned until the issue has been resolved.

We recommend taking steps to reduce the overall CPU usage for the account, which may be as simple as generating a flat HTML page for popular content, or enabling caching that is available through many popular scripts, or disabling high CPU usage features such as searches or Ajax refreshes. Although we may not be able to help in all cases, we would be more than happy to assist if you are unable to determine any cause, or if you need help interpreting any of the information.

CPU seconds used in the past hour: 3398.80000000004, 95% CPU

Best regards,

HostGator.com

I checked the traffic logs and I had maybe two users on the site when this email was sent.  Nowhere near this traffic.

I also checked the most recent search terms and here’s what I saw…

wisdom|| sleep 5 || sleep 5 &
wisdom|| sleep 5 || sleep 3 &
wisdom|| sleep 5 ; x || sleep 5 &
wisdom|| sleep 5 ; x || sleep 3 &
wisdom|| sleep 5 <foo>bar</ foo>

Please help!

Maybe the search terms and the excess processes aren’t related, I don’t know.  It definitely looks like somebody’s trying to mess with my store though.

Any feedback is welcome,
Davin

You definitely should now find out HOW they got inside. I suggest checking your permission settings and FTP credentials. If your password is too weak, you’re an easy target. I’ve come across a good reading about improving website security, if you care look here.

I too get the feeling the search terms are nothing to do with the problems you are experiencing.

Check your access logs to see if there are any traffic spikes as from what HostGator are saying it looks like you are experiencing some sort of DOS.

I take it this is all on a shared hosting package rather than a VPS.  If so that isn’t going to help you at all as you won’t have enough processing power when sharing with other potentially high traffic sites.  A VPS is the minimum needed to reliably run Magento, a decent dedicated server is even better!
