Download Spammed

As you may or may not know, we recently started mirroring several site downloads such as since we are hosting on another webhost (Dreamhost) and we are allowed 1 TB in bandwidth transfer.

There were some unusually large requests by a few IP address which ended up taking 285.57 gigabytes on the 12th, 73.27 gigabytes on the 13th and 223.93 gigabytes on the 14th. After that I had enough and decided to remove the entire mirrors directory to get rid of these ‘download abusers’.

Right now has done 870 GB out of 1024 GB. I’ve re-enabled the mirrors directory but only allowing the autopatcher folder to be accessed and only files under 30 MB can be downloaded. I might think about re-adding the other files next month.
