Someoen from china with two different ip is downloading the same big file from my server. Their ip are:
They requesting this file and downloading more than 20 times per minute.
What Can I do to prevent this? (I am on gentoo with root access)
And WHY they do this to a site that doesn't have nothing to do with china ?
the stupid thing is they are requesting only 1 single file lol. Or they want that file removed (tho i don't see why) Or they are pretty stupid
Situation is getting worse. IP are spreading from other countries too (usa and korea if www.geobytes.com/iplocator.htm it's right) And now they are requesting another file.
it seems after they realized i removed that file
they stopped attacking me.
I will monitor the situation.
They started again after a sleep of 3-4 mintues with the same file (lucky me). Hard to say why this is happening
