Blocking Anonymizer Hits

Someone has been abusing the Anonymizer system and hammering my system. Again, IPTABLES is my friend.

/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -s 168.143.113.125 -j DROP

This IP Address points to vortex.anonymizer.com.

dig -x 168.143.113.125

If someone at Anonymizer can bring these requests under control, I will turn the access back on.
