    Protecting from IPs with multiple concurrent requests


    I had hundreds of requests like this from the same IP:
    83.194.136.63 domain.gr:80 GET /eyeblaster/forum/forum/forum/forum/forum/forum/forum/for

    How can I protect the server from such incidents? I turned on SYNFLOOD in CSF, is that enough?

    Hello,

    I will suggest you please try to install and enable mod_Security on your server so that mod_sec will block this.

    Hello :)

    Do you notice slowness or service interruptions as a result of this traffic? You may want to block the IP address manually via your CSF interface if it's not blocked automatically.

    Thank you.
