Check out Rack Attack. It lets you block bots that make requests too fast to be real users, or that request obviously-suspect URLs (/phpmyadmin for example). There are lots of other options, but those are the quick wins IMO.1 project | reddit.com/r/rubyonrails | 23 Jun 2021
You can use rack-attack https://github.com/rack/rack-attack to implement rate limiting/blocking stuff.

It's entirely normal and expected. If your site gets any traction, volume and sophistication of probing will only increase. I recommend starting by setting up Rack Attack (https://github.com/rack/rack-attack), that will help you block the bad actors for awhile, if the volume gets high enough you'll want to start blocking traffic upstream in reverse proxy or load balancing layer, depending on architecture.
