I am getting a lot of requests for a file /none at the moment, maybe 50 at a time, from different IPs.
Each one uses a different SERVER REMOTE_PORT - for example, 2708, 2714, 2728, etc. plus a different
SERVER REDIRECT_UNIQUE_ID : Ss4t2UZUZMIAACBXtB8AAAFV, etc. The latest batch claim to come via Google using
SERVER HTTP_COOKIE : Land+for+sale+with+water+in+northern+Mallorca - where we do have an entry in the top 15.
Sometimes, I would get 5 or 6 attacks a day, but I now blacklist the IPs - 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 - so it is down to one or two blocks of emails a day.
Anyone know what the reason could be for this? And would a 301, perhaps to the home page, help?
A 301 would stop the error messages, but then I wouldn't see who was poking about?
