Topic links as reported in the above actually exists. :shock:

Please suggest remedial action to avoid a large error.log file in near future.
Thanks in advance.

that error is caused because the actual link they are trying to use includes a hack attempt, therefore, as the error says, the filename is too long.

you can try to figure out exactly where the hacking attempt is coming from and try to block it from the server.

the bottom line is that they are not getting through and will eventually give up and it is not hurting your board at all.


worse case is that you will have to dump the log file every so often if it continues to grow to an unreasonalbe size.

contact your host and show the error to them , maybe they can block it from their side.
