HOW TO USE THE WATCHLOG EXTENSION FOR MAGENTO

Watchlog is a free extension for Magento that is easy to use. You'll be able to see very quickly if your Magento Backoffice is threatened by a brute force attack and if someone or some robots are trying to log into your Magento admin panel.

STEP 1: Configure your Watchlog extension

You can start with configuring your extension in a general way in System > Config > Wyomind > WatchLog .

In the Connexion attempts history tab, you'll be able to configure a certain number of parameters.

History lifetime in days : You have the possibility to define a history lifetime in days in order to purge the history. For example, you'll be able to define the history lifetime on 30 days in order to remove automatically all the login attempts that are older than 30 days.

Send a periodical report : You can choose to receive periodical reports. If you have decided to set that option to YES , then you'll have to define:

- Period to report in days : define how many days you want to include in your report.

- Report title : define a title for your report.

- Report recipients : add the email addresses of the recipients separated by a comma.

- Report schedule : define a schedule to automatically send the reports.

STEP 2: Check the login attempts to your Magento backoffice

If you go to System > Watchlog , you'll have a global overview of the login attempts executed from your admin panel log in page.

Statistics on the login attempts will be displayed in graphs and tables.

Login attempts charts

You should get two graphs that recap the login attempts statistics on two different periods of time in order to give you the best possible view. The first chart will display the data on 30 days whereas the second one will sum up the login attempts on 24 hours.

Unable to install

Hello I've tried to install this extention to my magento community 1.9.0.1 store test environment.
And it gave the following message when I tried to install it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Checking dependencies of packages
Starting to download Wyomind_WatchLog-1.1.0.tgz ...
...done: 13,583 bytes

CONNECT ERROR: Package 'Wyomind_WatchLog' is invalid
'./app/etc' already exists
-------------------------------------------------------------------

What is happening here? /app/etc is a folder that is standard in Magento so I find it strange that magento is giving me this message.

Thanks in advance for any possible help.

Answer: 
Hello,

there's an error in the file package.xml.
When you install the extension and it fails you can find it temporarily in var/package/tmp/. Untar this package and insert the following code in the tag called 'target' at line 110 by overwriting the content '@FILES3@':

<dir name="modules">
<file name="Wyomind_Watchlog.xml" hash="7555645803666036cdd714ac9e5c1e15"/>
</dir>

After you've done that you can install the extension manually with ./mage install-file <filename>, or with the Connect Manager by uploading the file.

Best regards,
Christian

Reviews

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Wyomind

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extraordinary support! Most mentionable in my case is the support I guess. Yes, the extension is very much useful and works as described. However, WYOMIND's support works even better. Why? Because even on a sunday WYOMIND is not shy of giving full support! Yes, you heard right ... on a "sunday"! Besides, it was a very good, fast and professional support. Thank again, guys! October 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helpfull tool This tool is great for free. It show us an Hacker Attack so we can react fast. Thank you! August 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stopped Brute force attack in seconds Thanks again to Pierre and his team. I downloaded this extension and literally stopped a brute force attack in under 3 minutes. Installed in seconds, It gives all the information you need within a few minutes and simply works. Great free version. April 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice extesion to see hack attempts Got a message from them about a potential hack attempt. Read an review here this was fake ? Traced the ip and the ip was on an abuse list. If the reviewer wrote that was fake it would mean that this developers is faking the attacks ? What reason just to download a free watchdog extension ? I placed the attacking ip on a blacklist thru htaccess and attempts were stopped. So far this company has given me good support and I don't think this is fake or marketing. I never looked at hack attemps but since many systems are under attack why not magento sites. At least they woke me up so admin url will be changed as will downloader url. I can only see this as a positive reminder to make you installation more secure.. Good work April 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb tool Works exactly as described. Installed without a hitch. Checked the logs after 30 minutes and found there had been around 15 attempted to gain entry via brute force. I blocked the offending IPs in .htaccess. Well worth considering the Pro version for automatic blocking. Recommend this extension to everyone. April 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by False alerts and worried customers We run a few sites using the Data Feed Manager from Wyomind for Google Shopping feeds (this works great, can't recommend it enough!) However I received a notification for all the sites running this plugin yesterday that there were potential brute force attacks on the site to try and gain access to the back end. This is completely untrue, I scoured the logs and there's hardly any attempts in there (with 95% of them being legit attempts to log in). The fact it happened on all the sites within a few hours suggests this is just a marketing ploy, one which had us receive worried emails from customers (who run the site) about the security of their site (when there was nothing to be concerned about). So be aware of their work providing false alerts before blindly installing the extension to solve an issue that doesn't exist. April 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great for stopping hacking attempts Wyomind warned me about a possible brute force attack on my website, because they saw many login attempts (as they explained, each attempt retrieves their rss feed because I have an other extension from them). After installing the extension showed the attack and my provider blocked the attackers IP address. So thanks to Wyomind my website is more secure and the system resources are not used for anything that is not meant to use them. April 16, 2015
