On the 16th and 17th, I got crawled by a very poorly written bot. It sucked down over 5GB alone on the 17th as it got caught in some sort of recursive loop. It requested a single photo 37,969 times… not cool.
I’d like to set a sane transfer limit (10-20mb) per visitor/day, unfortunately it doesn’t look like there is a mod_throttle for Apache 2 yet. I’ve banned the IP, but if anyone has any other bright ideas, send them over.
