We troll bots for a living. This one made 3.7M unsuccessful HTTP requests in 24 hrs, and we responded to each with a js cryptographic challenge, which effectively tarpits the bot by sucking up CPU resources. Expensive, Lambda CPU resources. This guy's AWS bill is going to be nuts

When you host with a provider with high charges for extra CPU usage, you could get a surprise in your bill if your website gets hacked.

At Faelix we don't think that punishment works. We believe that education is a better use of our time and our customers' attention.
