Good morning Michael,

I was wondering.. your plugin hashcash is awesome in blocking bot attempts.. registering, contact forms...

If on a failed attempt by a bot, it could log this in error_log I can put fail2ban (or any other alike tool) to block the IP for entire site (and even all sites I run). on too many failed attempts...

Just an idea... your thoughts?

Tx,

Pieter

Good idea!

I'm a big fan of fail2ban! If you look at the AdminExile plugin, I've written an article on the site describing how to use the free version with fail2ban.

OK - I'll get on this modification right away. This is a great idea!
