About

(D)DoS Deflate is a lightweight bash shell script designed to assist in the process of blocking a denial of service attack. It utilizes the command below to create a list of IP addresses connected to the server, along with their total number of connections. It is one of the simplest and easiest to install solutions at the software level.

netstat -ntu | awk '{print $5}' | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

IP addresses with over a pre-configured number of connections are automatically blocked in the server's firewall, which can be direct iptables or Advanced Policy Firewall (APF). (We highly recommend that you use APF on your server in general, but deflate will work without it.)
