in our err logs we are finding many errors with very similar file names to existing ones...

people are trying to find non published files and private dir's

we need to come up with a program that would work server wide or on a per site basis to automatically refuse access by ip# to these unauthorized attempts...

to include unauthorized pass word attempts

any ideas will be a big help

Using apache? Use the deny htaccess command to deny by ip.

Use the site search above on "deny".
