Keeping up with the Botnets Round 2

I’ve been keeping up with tracking how many botnets are out there scanning WordPress blogs.  I’ve eventually resorted to blocking huge chunks of the Internet via .htaccess files.   So far it’s been quite effective in limiting the number of botnet login attempts.

If anyone is interested, I’ve put the limit portion of my .htaccess file here.  Feel free to use it and customize for your needs.
