Hi all this is probably a stupid question, but the site that I have created about 2 months ago has had numerous person(s)/ Robots attempt to hack it for information. I have no reason why, as the site is really of nothing of importance.
To block the ip addresses I have been manually adding the following to request filters under Host>Host Settings> Other Settings> Enable Request Filters:
Server Variable: REMOTE_ADDR
Operation: Regex
Match Value: 86\.105\.36\.246
Action: Redirect

for each ip address.... is their an easier way to do this? I am up to 20 of these filters added so far like this and wanted to see if there was a better way to do this... any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

generally I'm not a fan of these type of filters as it's fairly trivial to change/spoof an IP if it's a hack attempt. Are you sure it's a person, perhaps it's a robot/spider (in which case you can block via robots.txt). Note: IIS contains IP filtering capabilities which perform better than DNN's (as it happens at the server level so before the page is called)
