malicious traffic from Ireland

68 1 23


is anyone else also getting lots of traffic from Ireland within the last few hours?
Right now I got this enormous traffic peak with hundreds of page views per hour (more then 1500 within the last 3 hours). There are no events except the page views. Obviously bot traffic.

My store just opened a few weeks ago and I did not run any ad campain, or did anything else to route traffic to my store.

I already have contacted the Shopify Support and they want to look into it...but didn't get any response.
I wonder why they not just block that IP/IPs and file a complaint with the specific ISP.

Is there anything I could to?

I read from others with a similar problems here, which seems to be connected with Facebook ads. But this is not the case here.
