Ipban_XH

Hello Community,

I've just released Ipban_XH.

Ipban_XH facilitates to block access to your site from individual IP addresses. If a user is banned this way, he'll receives an appropriate message. To make the selection of offending IPs somewhat easier, all POST requests to the site are logged.

If you're looking for a more general solution to the problem of spammers and request flooding have a look at GXSecurity.

Any feedback is welcome!

Hello Community,

I've just released Ipban_XH 1beta2.

I've fixed a bug which allowed anybody to use IPBAN_DEBUG to simulate another IP, which could be used to circumvent the ban. Now IPBAN_DEBUG is available only in admin mode.

Any feedback is welcome!

Hi!

I have decided to cease further maintainance and development of Ipban_XH.

In my opinion, this plugin never has been really useful, and it seems that it is rarely used (if at all). If you need such kind of functionality, consider to use .htaccess or whatever your Webserver provides.

If you like, feel free to maintain your own version!
