Advice - Blocking IPs? Large number of hits on login page

  1. Hi Guys,

    Just looking a bit of advice really. My smarterstats are showing really large numbers hitting my login page from single IPs, I had over a million hits yesterday alone!!

    What would you suggest to stop this happening, should I block the IPs as they appear. Also any thoughts on why someone would just be hitting the login and no other pages?

    It was a total of 1.5GB of traffic (and the page is tiny) yesterday from my login page alone, I don't want this slowing down my site or other sites on the server either!!

    What is the best way to block an IP and should I report it? Any thoughts appreciated!
