Package: Tor Geoip Tools
One way to protect against those attacks from all those machines is to block network connections from the whole IP address range segment.
This package simplifies blocking a whole IP address range segment by generating commands to run the Linux iptables command that adds rules to stop all the IP addresses that belong to those range segments.
About the Tor Geoip Tools Package
The package Tor Geoip Tools is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.
The basic purpose is: Generate IPTables rules to block the range of a IP
Here follows in more detail what it does:
This class can generate IPTables rules to block the range of an IP.
It can find the IP range segment of a given IP address by looking up at a GeoIP database in CSV format generated by the Tor project geoip-db-tool command.
The class can output commands with parameters to use the iptables program to block the IP range segment.
The class can also determine the country of a user accessing a Web site based on the IP address of the user's computer.
The Tor Geoip Tools can be downloaded from download page or be installed using the PHP Composer tool following instructions in the Composer install instructions page.
This package was considered notable for implementing its benefits in a way that is worth noticing.
Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.
If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package as well nice prizes.
One nice prize that many PHP developers want and you may like is the PHP elePHPant mascot plush.
