Amazing that so many attempts are by the same numbers! They never quit do they? We really appreciate what you do Harry. if it weren't for you, the stak would collapse into internet dust with all the spamming going on. THANKS!

A note that I haven't read any of the backlog of messages in this corner of the forum, so I'm not aware if this question has been addressed a few dozen times previously. :-) So I will apologize.

Have you considered blocking IP ranges based on geography? Or a "cooldown" period per IP. Try more than x-times from one IP, within 10 seconds, and you get a 20min timeout.

I've tried blocking individual IPs. then smaller groups, and larger ranges. usually I'd start at /16, but if I noticed a bunch I'd then just block at /8. If you don't have an automated method for doing it it becomes a slow rabbit hole to insanity, trying to keep up. Plus if you have too many, your server thrashes about as it tries to parse all those rules. Just can't win.
So.. probably the current system works well enough, and I'll hush. :-)

Lots of handy internet tools here, https://mxtoolbox.com/NetworkTools.aspx. Use whatismyip for location data.

Are you sure you wish to delete 223,290 records from the logs?

Yes! Just a sampling of the crap. They appear to average out at ONE PER SECOND!
