Hi Samuel,

Agreed that ufw firewall is trying to be smart and blocking too much. I
appreciate your help in blocking the following IPs.

IPs that have been attacking network.sugarlabs.org:

Hi Aleksey,

I'm cc systems@ just to keep them informed of this ongoing attack and

One context in the Sugar Network was being updated with POST requests
from 20 different hosts, every second or so.

Aleksey, your suggestion to use apache Require directive to block them
did not work before Apache 2.4, and we have 2.2.

So I enabled the ufw firewall and blocked the following 20 addresses
coming from Russia :-)

I isolated the IPs from apache access logs.

I was wondering, I enabled http, https and ssh.

Aleksey, just doublechecking, do Sugar Network XO clients connect over
port 80, correct?

Are there other services on jita.sugarlabs.org that require other ports
