Poneytelecom.eu – How to Block this Dangerous French Network via .htaccess

We had to block the whole range of IPs of this dangerous network from France, using .htaccess. We were gettings hundreds of spam and hack attempts from them daily. We wrote about this French “network” here.

Here is what to add (or merge the “deny” only IPs) in your .htaccess to block them. Be sure you know what you are doing when editing your .htaccess file.

<Limit GET POST>
order allow,deny
# Poneytelecom.eu
deny from 62.210.0.0/16
deny from 195.154.0.0/16
deny from 212.129.0.0/18
deny from 62.4.0.0/19
deny from 212.83.128.0/19
deny from 212.83.160.0/19
deny from 212.47.224.0/19
deny from 163.172.0.0/16
deny from 51.15.0.0/16
deny from 151.115.0.0/16
deny from 2001:bc8::/32
# Poneytelecom.eu
allow from all
</Limit>

If you are using WordPress script, you can skip the .htaccess block and install The Shield plugin, that takes care most of the attacks and much more. With some tuning you can get rid of the spam and also block the web attacks using The Shield firewall option.
