You need to tell us what software you are using. Most can easily block an IP or IP range, but you may want to make sure that the software is patched and that the entire OS hasn't been compromised.

My advice: Reinstall the OS and don't put the FTP live until it is 100% updated and locked down.

You mean besides adding a rule at the firewall to block that IP?

As annoyed as you may be, the law doesn't care who swung first. If you do something that damages or compromises someone else's personal property, you are equally guilty.

Hi abnerdog,

Well if it makes you feel any better whoever that is that's doing the hacking is coming at you from China, don't you feel special now?
Good luck,
