I've been an unfortunate target of various script-kiddies/worms and have
configured apache to perform something like this on all incoming requests
containing bad URI's:

route -n add <evil IP> gw <bogus local host>

The only concern I have is will this cause performance problems? I've got
about 10 so far and I just put it up about 24hrs ago.

Thanks,
Joe Monti
