Leech Protect is not some sort of strange internet protection against the blood sucking worm (see Leech).
Whenever login details for a password protected directory are shared publicly,there is always a risk that the person will share these details with others. The Leech Protection service allows you to set a maximum number of logins within a 2 hour period. After the number of logins has been exceeded the system redirects or suspends theusers who exceed that maximum.
