    Hi:
    I have 200GB video file in my folder, only pay members can see the DL links.
    I am already disable the Indexing on cPanel, and i can see no access the DIR on the browser, but hacker can still scan these file name everyday, making my server going down because more then 200 connection to a 1GB files.
    Also, I already disable the hotlinking, but they still can download my video files, and I can't find the referral link back, I guess they sharing/spreed my video file in BT peer and EMU or other ways.

    Please help!!

    What does this have to do with cPanel?

    Have you created a password protect directory for these files to force a login to obtain them?

    no , i didn't , because is not good for user

    even i create a password protected, but the other DIR still can be access by the hacker, I remember the hacker run one PHP file in other folder (watermark program),he run 50-70 php at the same time, made 50 times CPU load, crash my server.:(
