So I have a client who is getting bot attacks & needs to know about them right when they start.
 
He's using Uptime Robot, but that doesn't tell you & of course, his ISP isn't telling him either.
 
What can we use to notify us the minute it happens & then block the e-mail & IP?
 
Thanks

It would be quite hard to block the IP since botnet attacks come from many IPs changing from time to time (Mostly). Why isn't your ISP helping out? They are supposed to jam the excess traffic.

I figured as much, but most ISPs (at least the ones I've been on) just tell us to use Wordfence & they rarely even care.

 

He's on VPNs & I'm assuming they aren't managed.

 

This client isn't on WP

 

And the first step is being notified right away that there is a problem.

 

That's why I want software that will do that.

I might be able to give you some ideas, but I could use some more information.  What is being attacked?  Network, blog, other?  Does the client own the network that this service is running on?  Could they , for instance, install a firewall or monitoring system (IDS/IPS)?  If so, then maybe something like Snort or Suricata would be beneficial and could be configured to alert on the activity by use of signatures. If they do not own the network and the ISP is not willing to help, it will be more difficult.
