I had a robot attaching my site. I tried the anti-fraud extension that comes with OC but that stopped all orders from being processed. It may be a conflict with some other extensions but rather than checking I tried adding the deny instruction to the htaccess file. This works and the site functions properly.
Deny from <IP Address>
So far so good

That will work until the next one, or until they use another IP.

A better solution would be something like this: https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=36312

Thanks Paul, I wasn't getting spam, it was just crawling through my site and looked like hacking attempts.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Cloudflare
Not a good idea, tends to slow things down, despite it claims of being a CDN.
