We have just had our site penetration tested.

It has been recommended that login access be restricted to a limited number of locations.
I'm only aware of the default login areas such as:

www.mysite.com/login.aspx

but if i remove login functionality from here I won't be able to login as an admin user!
Unless it's best practice to remove it from here (via the skin?) and then create another obscure page and add a login box to that?

They gave these addresses as examples:

https://www.oursite.org.uk/Host/ctl/Login
and
https://www.oursite.org.uk/login?returnurl=%2fadmin

Note:
They also recommended changing the host login name - which i have already done (by creating another superuser and un-authorising host).
thanks

All links Point to the same Login control and if you are using DNN 74.2, the number of URLs has been limited.

I think the point being is that having a login control on the default location like mysite/login is easy to guess for hackers?

I think the recommendation is to move the login control to a more obscure location with the site.

(although this was given as a 'low' risk)
