Spam attack of mods requirements?


#1

Hi everyone,

I am experiencing some sort of spam issue in my server, where it kept on spam the console saying it’s disconnection player due to not having the required mod. It’s huge spam of the log that the server just crashed. Anyone had encountered this before and had a solution?

I believe is a bot attack. However, since the users did not enter, there is no way for me to get the IP address and I am hosting it on server.pro.

I have created a simple firewall mod/plugin so you can create rules to reject connections from IP addresses
