Status update: Direct and Organic traffic is now back to normal/expected. I have captured and banned 1045 ip addresses so far.
error_log shows that I am issuing a "denied" access to these four files every second or so.
Still catching and banning a new ip address every 50 – 120 seconds.
Looking at the IP addresses most trace back to:
Montevideo, UL via Mexico
South Bribane, AU
and a few minor others.
These four pages generate around $300 monthly – I’m going to keep AdSense off until I’m sure I got a handle on this. I’ll be fine…
