  • Banning by hostname

    I'm being attacked by the keymachine.de spam botnet and would like to ban this hostname from accessing my forum. Is there anything I can do?

    Ban them via .htaccess.

      Tried that but it doesn't seem to be working. I have the .htaccess file in the root directory of my site with the following text in it

      ORDER Allow,Deny
      DENY FROM keymachine.de
      ALLOW FROM ALL

      Yet they're still showing up in my who's online link.
