Perl module for Apache mod_perl to check frequent attack vectors
I noticed some common URL requests coming in for particular URLs. Rather than waste time with processing these, I wanted to capture the IPs and then do some analysis. It also helps Apache so it doesn't have to keep processing the same bad requests and spend compute cycles to get to an error status. The request is rejected at the beginning of the request cycle.
Somewhere in your Apache configuration
