fail2ban filter

Using fail2ban ip filtering to protect your server? This filter will automatically track and reject malicious use of security scanners.

This fail2ban filter automatically blocks ip addresses that use known software hacks to attempt to break in your server. This filter is helpful but not required in any way.

We take application security seriously at White Whale and to date the LiveWhale framework has not been compromised by any such scanner usage. We created this filter to assist in useless traffic reduction, as the same ips tend to also attempt form spam and the like.
