I've tried to search for a geo-blocking plugin for wordpress - didn't find anything.

So thought to ask here if anyone knows of a geo-blocking solution for wordpress sites?

If memory serves, Bad Behavior allows to configure a few aspects of geo-blocking. There might be a few wp.org plugins tagged as security that allow to implement geo-blocking too.

That said, I don't think it's the right approach. The best is to hop over to askapache.com. There's tons of security-related, htaccess-based stuff over there. Geo-blocking is among them.

Or if you want to stay in the Stack Exchange network, maybe Pro Webmasters offers good advice. – Jan Fabry Nov 2 '10 at 9:22
