This script automatically blocks DDoS attacks that are spamming your BungeeCord server with invalid packets.

By default the script will restart every 30 minutes, because the
tail code stops working if the file is rotated (new day, BungeeCord restart, etc).
I think this could’ve been handled in a better way, but hey, it works!
