Strange downloading

1. Stephen19 October 2011, 13:20 GMT +02:00

25 oddly diverse images, all from one of four '112 image pages' from my gallery downloaded between 10.45 and 12.00. That's 3 seconds each. Way beyond my typical downloads. Suspicious?

That really is strange.

Several users have downloaded from your gallery several images in a short time.

My guess is, someone created several users to try and dodge a download limit.

I will investigate further.

Update: I blocked the downloader some hours ago, I'm busy adding code to prevent it from happening again.

Thanks Lennie, I imagine it's a tough code to write

The real problem is finding the right policy/balance which doesn't hinder normal people from downloading a lot of files but blocks possible rippers.
