Enables blocking of IP addresses.
This module restores lost Drupal core functionality with some improvements.
- see when IP was blocked, who of users block this IP and reason for blocking (if specified);
- set a 404 (Not Found) status code for visitors from blocked IP instead of default 403 (Access Denied);
- enable logging for access attempts from blocked IPs.
New in version 1.x-1.0.5:
- display number of blocked IPs on the "Status report" page;
- integration with the new "Antiscan" module (https://backdropcms.org/project/antiscan) to
automatically block IP addresses used by bad crawlers or vulnerability scanners.
Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at https://backdropcms.org/guide/modules
