Early this morning at about 1:30 am my server was brought to a crawl. I restarted it but it still was crawling around. After a lot of patience I was able to bring up the logs and I found out that an IP from Israel was slamming bloggingpro.com. I don’t know if it was a comment/trackback spamming attack or an attempted DOS attack but I finally got his IPs blocked.
There were a few others he was using so I blocked from 82.80.252 on.
