Phailomatic, is an intrusion prevention/denial of service mitigation tool written in PHP. Phailomatic was created for use in a situation where Fail2ban wasn't a good option for somewhat unusual circumstances. I still use Fail2ban on other systems because of its versatility and the fact that someone else (upstream and my distro) maintains it.

Phailomatic was written in something of a hurry, in the middle of some other projects.  I may substantially re-write it sometime, because the code is ugly.
