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!!

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