[SLUG] Banning non Australian IP's from Aussie ecommerce site


 Hi all,

I'm running an ecommerce site and currently I only deal with Australian shoppers.

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.
