Default Blacklist

As a getting-started point you can include the excellent blacklist developed by Jim Walker of HackRepair.com.

Ban Hosts

Use the guidelines below to enter hosts that will not be allowed access to your site. Note you cannot ban yourself.

  • You may ban users by individual IP address or IP address range.
  • Individual IP addesses must be in IPV4 standard format (i.e. ###.###.###.### or ###.###.###.###/##). Wildcards (*) or a netmask is allowed to specify a range of ip addresses.
  • If using a wildcard (*) you must start with the right-most number in the ip field. For example ###.###.###.* and ###.###.*.* are permitted but ###.###.*.### is not.
