As if Black Friday was not stressful enough. Since this morning there have been constant order attempts, some successful, for low value items (£4.95). They try over and over... and over again.
This is what the orders look like:
And this is the payment attempts on each order:
I am manually adding their IPs to our .htaccess file however this bot changes IP as soon as they are blocked. I won't be able to keep up. Some of the IPs I have blocked:
deny from 22.214.171.124 deny from 126.96.36.199 deny from 188.8.131.52 deny from 184.108.40.206 deny from 220.127.116.11 deny from 18.104.22.168
If they keep updating their IP address, I suppose there is just no way to sort this out, they will always have a way around what ever guards I put up?
Many thanks for any help or advice.
