I'm running an ecommerce site and currently I only deal with Australian
However there are many hacking attempts from non Aussie IP addresses.
I'm looking at blocking everything that is non-Australian.
Has anyone done this? Any issues/ gotcha's/ tips/ etc?
Should I do it at the ISP or iptables? (would need a hand with IP tables)
I've found geoip, still looking into it.
