    First time I have experienced a big bot attack on my site, every 4 minutes or so getting an email from my iThemes security plugin that another ip address had been banned from my site. All from Russia, Romania and a few more in that area. Had been going on for 12 hours. I went into the iThemes Security log to get all the banned ip addresses copied into the banned host and user agents area, and it was not stopping. Obviously they do have hundreds of IP at their disposal.
    Had your plugin for awhile but not activated. Well after activating it and configuring a few simple things – it stopped. YA! storm had ended.
    Have since read up on your overview of each configuration option and it is easy to set up. Thank you very much. Love iThemes Security and this is a great addition to my Security force! Love IP Geo Block
