Website admin access blocked due to blacklist

Post by kensington15+ » Sun Sep 20, 2020 8:07 am

Three days ago I navigated to my website to Login as per usual to update a page contents only to be informed via a 403 error that I could no longer access the page as my IP was on a blacklist?

Run several A/Vs on full scan to no avail, tried netstat 5, no errors that I could see, similarly TCPView and Tcpvcon, nothing out of the ordinary.

My email works fine, got about 30 different work and personal related email accounts, across Gmail, Ionos, 1und1, BT and Outlook.

Other than no longer being able to login to my domain admin (Joomla) my internet access and emailing are normal.

Any clues out there?

Thank you.

Did you have any Joomla security plugins installed?

You may also want to try using a different internet connection to see if you can access the admin from there.
