One of our client's PHPBB (surprise, surprise) got hacked. I have taken it down by simply changing the directory name for now however the address
example.com/forum/* is still getting hits from unsavory IPs. The server runs Apach on a CentOS box.
I am no expert but would like to automatically block any IP that accesses the directory from ALL http/s requests on the box. Is there a simple solution to this? I do have root shell access.
