Ok, AT first there was a flurry of activity, now it seems to have slowed down a bit. I'm guessing your client just banned a bunch of bots?

That would be correct. The BOTs do consume a bunch of your bandwidth that your actual visitors should be using.

Update: no errors or crashes so far. Still seeing a few entries in the log, seems to be working fine. Is there anything a legit visitor or member could do to be mistaken for a malicious bot?

They could keep attempting to log on using the incorrect password lots of times instead of using the 'forgot password' link... Something a BOT would do. You should still see new entries in the log as new BOTs find your site... The better your ranking in the search engines, the better the BOTs can find you unfortunately...  :(

Update: Everything seems to be ok. Still seeing activity on the log. Gotta a question though. My webhost is trying to get me to buy their optional (and pricey) firewall for my forum. Would i really need that now?

Absolutely not!

A "real" firewall service should be included in hosting since it is their machine the hackers will be gaining access to.
Otherwise they are selling smoke using scare tactics...

You will see activity in the logs as long as there are BOTs on the web attempting to gain access to your system...

Only fake GoogleBots... Use the Goggle Search Console to verify that your account is being indexed.
