Ip classes tend to be similar but I can't block entire /16 classes. Anyways, is this something to worry about? Does "ModSecurity: Access denied with code 501" actually block the attack or should I put drop instead? Thanks

  • Completely normal. Welcome to the Internet. – Chris S Jun 25 '14 at 15:25
  • So drop rule with nolog would be the way to go at least to clear apache log of these pests? – Ivan Jun 25 '14 at 15:48
  • If you want to use Fail2Ban it has to hit the log. Otherwise I would use "nolog" until a valid visitor complains they can't get to your site. – Chris S Jun 25 '14 at 16:02

It looks like mod_sec is doing it's job. You may want to consider adding a fail2ban to your system and configure it to ban IP addresses that crop up in the logs repeatedly.

  • Yeah that's what I thought. Someone really keeps insisting on this as it goes on for days now... – Ivan Jun 25 '14 at 15:22
  • @Ivan Probably just passive scanners and noise, but always good to fail2ban them. – Nathan C Jun 25 '14 at 15:24
