Hi!

Today morning I had a problem about an attack against some websties hosted in my server. This caused apache very slow and high load.

A lot of IP address (about 900 address) trying to access wp-login.php of some websites (about 20 websites), at the same time.
Do you have any way to block this using modsecurity rules?

I could found it in some threads about it, but some are to old. I´m using the last cpanel version, with easyapache4 and the new modsecurity tools.

Very thank you

Best
Joao
