On my site, users do not have permission to create content.
However, looking through the watchdog logs, I found several accounts that were attempting to access
and so on. In this case, all the accounts were registered from @ad.drupaler.org, so it was easy to eliminate them, but in case the same thing happens from a variety of domains in the future, I'd like to set up some way to alert myself that users are attempting to access these paths.
I am thinking about using the Rules module to do this, but I was wondering if there was already a "best practice" for this kind of thing-- since there are automated bots to attack Drupal sites, there might be an automated way to fight back.
