Attempt to validate empty nick from xx.xx.xx.xx
« on: 20 February, 2004, 19:42:17 »
I've been getting this a few times these last days ...

Quote
[17:47] >>> Attempt to validate empty nick from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
[17:48] >>> Empty destroyed


(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = Users IP)

thats just one line out of many that i get at a really fast rate.

What im wondering, is this a stupid attack attempt or an error in the hub software ?

I asked the same thing once but got told that it is nothin to worry about!!

To connect to a hub, the hub requires a nickname, and those messages you get explain for you that the user with that IP didn't have a nickname and therefor got disconnected
