My GOD am I ever weary of the scumbags who invest their time, energy and effort in acting like script-kiddies attacking WordPress sites. It’s exploded in the last few weeks and, once again, the lion’s share of attacks are coming from that haven for black-hat hacker wannabees, OVH in France.
Over three years ago I wrote, “Brute Force Attacks Coming From OVH in France” after I’d reached out to Octave Klaba the “founder, chairman and cto” of OVH. He didn’t care then and I’m certain he won’t care now, but you’ve got to check out this stream of attacks today in less than a minute to see why I’m so agitated:
Again, Klaba made it very clear to me all those years ago that he could care less about online abuse like this which is why I’ve redirected all the standard URLs for these attempts so they go to Interpol. Maybe some Interpol sysadmin will wonder why they’re now receiving so much traffic from OVH and at least make an inquiry. This shit has to stop.
