Note: You must first have CrowdSec installed on your server. The installation is very simple.
CrowdSec is composed of a behavior detection engine, able to block classical attacks like credential bruteforce, port scans, web scans, etc.
Based on the type and number of blocked attacks, and after curation of those signals to avoid false positives and poisoning, a global IP reputation DB is maintained and shared with all network members.
This WordPress plugin is a “bouncer”, which purpose is to block detected attacks with two remediation systems: ban or challenge detected attackers with a Captcha.
- Block aggressive IPs
- Display a captcha for less aggressive IPs
Get more info on the CrowdSec official website.
What do I need to make CrowdSec work?
- You have to install a CrowdSec instance on this server.
- You have to generate a bouncer key on the server on which CrowdSec is running.
