DDoS Protection Script For iptables

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Source: Digital Point

After a few days of being attacked by a 25,000 zombie botnet, believe me i have tried almost everything possible to make it stop. The best thing that helped was this script, thought it could help here when it’s your turn getting those script-kiddies attackers visiting your servers.
