I already thought about using a firewall rule. Although it could be
quite difficult to get it right. As every malicious request blocks a
slot for 5 minutes there hasn't got to be a lot of traffic/requests.

But I guess that's a possibility which would work, even though I'd
prefer an apache solution.
