Today I had a meeting with an asshole. Well, more properly my web server had a meeting with an asshole.
According to a couple IP geolocation sites this is some douchebag in Chicago.
So, this asshat decided to try to hack my server.
It didn’t work.
It really didn’t work.
He managed to get 12. Twelve.
1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1
12 requests through that didn’t blocked with a 403 refused status.
The other 52,217 requests were all blocked. Blocked before it even left Apache. Blocked before the blog even tried to log the douche canoe in.
After the first couple thousand that all return an error any normal idiot would move on to the next server to try to attack. No… not my friendly ass nugget. No he kept on going for around six hours. All with errors.
