I have mod_httpBL installed but this only blocks requests from IPs already listed. Many robots masquerade as users by using user agent strings or dynamic IPs.
I am looking for an Apache 2.x module with following options:
- block IPs that request too many HTML files too fast
- maybe block these IPs for a certain time
- exclude IPs from good search engines (whitelist for Google, Bing, etc.) from this block
Not sure if mod_bandwidth, mod_throttle, mod_choke can do that.
What is your experience or recommendation?
