E107 Flood Ban


One of my websites uses the e107 Template, and in the last few days I have had a LOT of email notifications of  IP  addresses being auto-banned due to:
Reason: Hit count exceeded (101 requests within allotted time)

I began to check who has been flooding me, and got quite a surprise….

The first few I checked were:

  • Australian Department of Defence
  • SingTel Optus Pty Ltd
  • Mater Hospitals
  • Telstra Internet Address Registry

It seems that the flood ban stops genuine visitors.  I am un-banning these  ones immediately.
