After reviewing the log files for this blog, I noticed many attempts to log into it, and send bogus contact form data.
This is my blog, registration and comments are disabled. To all those who would post helpful comments and legitimate information, I’m sorry.
I access the blog administration from a very limited set of IP addresses, so, instead of wasting my time blocking access from IPs that shouldn’t be logging in, I decided to block all accesses to the administration interface, except my IP address.
This is done using server configuration directives. Refer to the appropriate documentation on blocking access.
After making the changes, be sure to test the effect. The link above is for a nice proxy service that will allow you to visit your pages with a different IP address. The pages should display fine for all navigation through the blog, except things like logging in, and perhaps the contact form. Check anything that’s important to you.
This works if you have a site, blog, or system where the authorized users are from a limited set of IP addresses. It can’t be used to protect against ‘bots and spammers on a forum or contact form. In those cases, I recommend BotScout.
For all those who have been trying to login, please go away.
