Specifically talking about an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server (Lucid Lynx), although its probably applicable to other Linux versions.
I was trawling through the logs for a few websites, doing some spring cleaning so to speak and noticed a few IP addresses that have been acting dodgy so I wanted to add them to the blacklist.
Basically I got playing around with IPtables, the blacklist of IP's is just a text file. I then created a shell script to loop through the text file and block each IP address in IPtables.
This worked fine when the shell script was run manually. But obviously I wanted it to run automatically at start up, for whenever the server may be rebooted. So I included the shell script into
So it now looks like
#!/bin/sh /sbin/iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.up.rules sh /etc/addBlacklist.sh
So I rebooted the server and the blacklist rules where applied, but it seems like they have been applied multiple times. As in duplicate lines appearing when iptables -L is run.
Just wondering if anyone would know the reason for this?
I suppose it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things but I'm curious.
