    In the past few weeks i have been getting emails around attempts to brute force my Admin account.
    Thankfully i had disabled the admin account in favour of a non generic account name.
    I have also setup 2 factor authentication, Strengthen password, setup account protection, enabled ddos protection. Setup a trusted client list. started blocking the IP's (listed below) , configured autoblock.


    Anything else i can be doing to ensure the security of my box?

    ips blocked so far.
    94.242.249.117
    82.102.22.37
    89.249.65.28
    185.212.171.41
    101.93.178.42
    interestingly enough doign an IP who is most of them have a connection with M247...

    Why on Earth would you have a NAS directly interfacing the Internet? Never heard of VPNFilter? :eek:

    Use a VPN!

    Basically negates the point of having a Synology box if you have to vpn in. I use several features that I require to have certain services exposed to the internet

    Yes, don't expose services - NAS boxes are very sweet targets for bad actors...
