Subject Re: Security - Attack

Warning: this may start flame war - but its my opinion.

What is the purpose of detecting and trying to prevent these attacks? If 
someone code reds (or similar) you - they get a 404 error. Why waste the 
extra processing power and  extra config maintenance on something that 
does "no harm". When the next type of attack comes out - should the 
config be changed to address that? Its a waste of time.
