For Apache why not deploy the mod_evasive module. What is mod_evasive?
mod_evasive is an evasive maneuvers module for Apache to provide
evasive action in the event of an HTTP DoS or DDoS attack or brute
force attack. It is also designed to be a detection and network
management tool, and can be easily configured to talk to ipchains,
firewalls, routers, and etcetera. mod_evasive presently reports abuses
via email and syslog facilities.
I have finished university for the summer, would you like me to look
into deploying this
next week? Does anyone have any objections to this?
