Hey guys, need someone's help here. From the past week or so the bandwidth usage of my site increased from 1GB a month to 12GB a Day!
Awstats indicates that there are a range of unique IPs hitting my site and requesting thousands of pages with every visit. Most of these IPs seem to be originating from within the US which is funny. I have blocked China, Brazil and some other countries in my HTaccess but the hits continue.
Here are some example IPs that hit my site as of now and requested thousands of pages.
Can anyone please explain what is happening? And what can I possibly do to stop this? If this continues, my site will go offline within a week or so.
