Hi, i use VPS and paid proxy, but today my hoster reseive this letter:"I am the webmaster of seocentro.com and being attacted by a botnet that send HTTP request from more than 30,000 IPs all using the same way of connecting to the site.
The most of them connect ones or twice every second (for to keep a low profile), some of them less but together they are responsible for more than 200 new connections/second, 18 milion/day on a site that has less than 3000 unique visitor/day.
The IP 78.31.XX.XXX belongs to the ones who send request on a higher rate than the most of them.
Many but not all of the IPs are know for to be part of a botnet
The url they send requests to is:
How well the 78.31.XX.XXX is now blocked (like many of them) by the firewall it still try to connect and slow down my server!"
what could it be? I do not know this site seocentro.com...
