    Please can anyone instruct me how to avoid hackers coming from http://fusker.leww.com/ to access one of my directories "videos" in one of my domains "celebrities"?
    I have read all the information on Plesk Manual but I am not able to figure it out.
    They are stealing me almost 50GIGs per day in bandwidth.
    Thank you very much

    I can not password protect the directory.
    It is an AVS site.
    If I password protect the directory nobody can enter the site.
    I just need to be able to block the domains where the hackers come from.
    Thanks anyway

    Quickest way would be to block the offending domain's IPs at your firewall.

    There are other ways to do it by using Apache directives such as Rewrites

    Example: blocking offending websites (posted on WHT forums)
    Code:
    To add multiple urls, ie to ban 6park.com which causes alot of problems we just add [OR]
    
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^[url]http://[/url](.*)fmforums.co.uk(.*) [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^[url]http://[/url](.*)6park.com(.*)
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [L,F]
