An Update on Script Kiddies

Roughly a year later, the script kiddies are still very much active. Over the first 11 months of 2019, there were 8500 attempts (most of them triggering a ban, temporary or otherwise) to access non-existant php files on this blog.

That's 773 attempts a month, a bit more than 23 attempts a day, from distinct IPs.

So, yea, for a site as active as this, as as popular as this, and as critical for a whole lot of services as this, that's definitely a worthwhile investment...
