    well i am guessing that the person has finally given up after some time, I looked when i woke up this morning and it had said that there was 663 members online lastnight and I am pretty sure this is where most of them had came from, but I have not seen them since, so I am hoping the problem is solved!!!!! ;)

    When using a software such as VB or even .htaccess files to ban IP's, they are still able to make it to the web server, then they get rejected. If you were to ban the IP at the firewall level, they would never make connections to your web server daemon.

    I think there are VBulletin plugins to block IP's with a lot of requests/time
