i just enabled mod_security.
My IP Block went from 72 to 200 after 24h.
While checking, mod_security blocks google's IP.

Can I ask you something. If it's a google bot, is it bot only accessing by sitemap and scanning post , tag , page URLs .
Why does it appear in the DA server.
And if DA blocks it, will it affect the website's index?
Please guide, thank you very much.
@cap4a honestly - I don't know, I don't use mod_security - there 300-500 clients per server, I can't tune it for anybody.
you can always grep your logs for this IPs - and you will see what they have done to be blocked, maybe they parsing some login-page, ot this is not a google indexing bots. Check IP whois, it's just hacked VPS:
