- I am under DDoS. What can I do? 4 answers
Apache mod_evasive description:
When possible attacks are detected, mod_evasive will block the traffic from the source for a specific duration of time, while reports abuses via email and syslog facilities. Or administrators can configure mod_evasive to talk to iptables, ipchains, firewalls, routers, and etc. to build a comprehensive DDOS prevention system for the high traffic busy web server.
But for Lighttpd mod_evasive, I still not clear about the function. The Lighttpd mod_evasive docs also not give details about it.
I just need to protect from HTTP DoS or DDoS (Denial of Service) attack.
Can Lighttpd mod_evasive block the traffic from the source for a specific duration of time?
