I banned the IP addresses that they seemed to be coming from:
18.104.22.168The actual log entries look like this:
22.214.171.124 - - [08/Jun/2006:16:36:13 -0700] "GET /fanfic/c/chri3227.txt HTTP/1.1" 200 4445 "-" "psycheclone
Doing a google on psycheclone and the above ip addresses results in some hits on various web logs, so its likely this is a known DOS Attacker.
I submitted a ticket to my web hosting provider asking about my options etc.,
I just need to keep a closer eye on things, I guess. I am glad I caught this.
Not alot of news to update, as my Internet was out for 5 days so I didn't get my online stuff done and have been catchig up with email in the meantime.
