RIP Prevention mod

Recommended Posts

I have the title mod installed and I'm amazed at one result today = the top highlighted one below.

The mod shows in Admin Site Access and Hammer Stats

How can there be 807 page hits/682 fast pages/341 warns/95 bans?  My site requires login.

A search reveals that the IP address was in Switzerland and I've added 194.209 to the site htaccess file.

Can anyone explain the large number of page hits when the average is only 2?

It had to be a bot of some kind trying to do something.  You could look at the server logs to see what page accesses they were attempting.  It will probably show a bunch of hits to the login screen after whatever first page, since your site requires login.  Then there should be a bunch of inbound hits with the ban page served back.  After being banned and getting the ban message, a person will generally close the browser and go to another site.  The mod keeps counting the hits as they or the bot keeps attempting to do something even after having been banned and only getting the ban page served to them.

Thanks for your reply. This really bowled me over when I saw the totals.

Lots of killjoys out there, but I shouldn't see this one again.
