My CiviCRM-logs are filling up with entries like this:

Aug 20 22:03:29  [info] $Fatal Error Details = Array
  [message] => Du har inte tillräcklig behörighet för att se denna sida.
  [code] =>

Aug 20 22:03:29  [info] $backTrace = #0 /var/www/events/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Core/Error.php(364): CRM_Core_Error::backtrace("backTrace", TRUE)
#1 /var/www/events/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Utils/System/Joomla.php(455): CRM_Core_Error::fatal("Du har inte tillräcklig behörighet för att se denna sida.")
#2 /var/www/events/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Utils/System.php(277): CRM_Utils_System_Joomla->permissionDenied()
#3 /var/www/events/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Core/Invoke.php(232): CRM_Utils_System::permissionDenied()
#4 /var/www/events/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Core/Invoke.php(86): CRM_Core_Invoke::runItem((Array:15))
#5 /var/www/events/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/CRM/Core/Invoke.php(54): CRM_Core_Invoke::_invoke((Array:3))
#6 /var/www/events/components/com_civicrm/civicrm.php(86): CRM_Core_Invoke::invoke((Array:3))
#7 /var/www/events/components/com_civicrm/civicrm.php(11): civicrm_invoke()
#8 /var/www/events/libraries/cms/component/helper.php(392): require_once("/var/www/events/components/com_civicrm/civicrm.php")
#9 /var/www/events/libraries/cms/component/helper.php(372): JComponentHelper::executeComponent("/var/www/events/components/com_civicrm/civicrm.php")
#10 /var/www/events/libraries/cms/application/site.php(191): JComponentHelper::renderComponent("com_civicrm")
#11 /var/www/events/libraries/cms/application/site.php(230): JApplicationSite->dispatch()
#12 /var/www/events/libraries/cms/application/cms.php(252): JApplicationSite->doExecute()
#13 /var/www/events/index.php(45): JApplicationCms->execute()
#14 {main}

Time interval between entries range from a minute to a couple of hours, but many entries during a day.

Does anyone have any idea why this might be? Or where to start hunting it down.

It appears that the error simply is reporting that someone is trying to access a CiviCRM page and they do not have sufficient permission to access it.

This is either due to an authorized person trying to access the page, but not having sufficient permission set, or to some unauthorized person (robot?) attempting to access the page.

I would probably try to contrast the error messages with the web server access log to try to identify what page is being attempted to be accessed, and its IP address. If it's a robot you may be able to detect that as well. (It could simply be a search engine robot that knows of the page and is regularly attempting to access it without the proper credentials.)
