Note : You may use all or some of denying criterias as well as the actions to be taken on them. Bogus URLs "403", "404" et "410" match with Apache errors 403, 404 et 410.

Finding out logging in intruder's criterias?

  • You will find these criterias in the supervision emails sent by your website when you have activated the service and chosen the supervision options.
  • You will also find all or some of this information in the logs.

Note 2 :  administrators et webmasters are strongly advised to receive this supervision which let them know everything that goes on their site and take any advisable steps as soon as possible.

Role and methodology of blacklisting:

  • Blacklisting is the second action that can be taken against an intruder. It aims at preventing posting on the sitee contray to banning which aims at denying access to the site itself.
  • Beware to use this function carefully and wisely. Mind not to block all users of a domain by mistake or all those who use such or such browser. E.g. Don't block you own IP address!
