Hi Peter,

The issue I have is persistent sql injection type attacks causing load on
the server, I can easily detect these within IC and wanted a way to
temporarily auto ban the IP using csf, at the moment I have do it manually.

The attacks appear as IC searches, they don't achieve anything except
slowing the server down, as I can easily detect them within IC it seemed
like a good idea to use a script within IC.

Any suggestions on other ways to tackle it would be welcome.
