Support » Plugin: Stop Spammers » Repeated exploit attempt caught but IP can just keep trying

    My current log has 25 lines of the same IP getting logged every 2 seconds for an action that results in “404 on Exploit Attempt”.
    This all seems good, I guess, as the plugin catches the bad bot, but why is it not just completely blocked access after such continuous bad activity?
    Is there a way to automatically block such users other than manually adding bad IPs to the block list?

    In my protection options, I have “Deny 404 Exploit Probing” checked. Is this not the same thing as getting a 404 on an exploit attempt?

    Also, the SFS, project honeypot and botscout dont have the IP listed as a bad bot. Is there a way to report it, or a way to have the plugin automatically report such activity to these sites?
