I have been dealing with trolls trying to access the forum, mostly from the baltic states and banning them. Apparently our forum host is going to have to do some as Dion saysYour VPS is getting hammered by bots/intruders. It isn't just website bots looking for vulnerabilities; it's backend SSH/FTP login attempts, cPanel login attempts, SMTP server login attempts, etc.
So knownhost is now aware of the problem and as been asked to deal with it. No, they did not get into the forum or anywhere else. They just sucked up the bandwidth to access the place. Perhaps it is related to the nasty ban comments I use with them.aggressive server-level IP banning. And not banning individual IP addresses, which is a waste of time...banning entire blocks of IP addresses

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
