Auto Block hackers IPs from your FTP Server IIS
Posted on Oct 31, 2007 by Paul White
I was sick of every few days seeing thousands of FTP attempts in my server logs. I searched the web and found that another developer had already created a little windows service to take care of this. The installation was pretty straight forward. I just had to set a variable in a REG file. This variable tells the service how many failed attempts are allowed before blocking the IP address. After installing this. It immediately went through about 6 months of FTP server logs and blocked over 50 IPs that were used by hackers. If a hacker trys to get in via FTP it will autoblock their IP. If you want to get yourself a copy of this check out FTP Security
Best of all its free! Only bad part was the little service takes up about 20 Megs of Ram. If you are on a small VPS
( 256 Meg ) this might be a little too much. Now if only they could make a service that does that same thing but for scanning my Application Error Logs for SQL injection attacks.
