    Protecting against spammers?

    I was on my visitors on AWstats, and when looking up most of the top IPs (the ones that viewed the most pages), most of them were associated with IANA, and tagged as spam/hacker IPs.

    Of course, I've blocked all of those IPs with my .htaccess file, but how can I further protect my server from such threats? How can I rid my server of these spammers/hackers?

    IANA, hackers??? Sorry, I don't understand... IANA isn't hackers organization... How did you look up these IPs? Please paste some examples of "tagged as spam/hacker IPs"

    Ah, I meant to say that IANA tagged those as spammers/hackers.

    I will post some examples later tonight.

    I was basically looking for ways to secure my server from intruders/hackers. I searched through the forums and I found some nifty UNIX tools like OSIRIS, which I will be installing shortly.

    What OS does your server have and any control panel installed?
