This script works in pair with -iptables- to automatically ban IPs that generate a number of active connections above a configurable limit. You can also add allowed IPs that will not be taken into consideration at the time of baning. A file with spada-daemon is included in the downloads to demonstrate a daemon alike usage by using sleep in between calls to the script. SPADA has demontrated to be a simple to use yet powerful way to defend from random DOS attacks.
