    Okay so after looking at my logs to see what the little girl TieuWi was doing to DDOS the site I came to the realization that she was using a WordPress exploit use by some script kiddies or girls like TieuWi that use a ping option read more about it here
    If you look at your site logs you will see a lot of logs similar to this - - [03/Oct/2015:10:01:56 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 499 0 "-" "WordPress/3.5.1;"

    As you can see “WordPress/3.5.1;  the site still on an old WordPress and hasn’t patch the exploit
    To stop basically you need to add this to your Apache or Nginx server
    [codesyntax lang=”html4strict”]

    if ($http_user_agent ~* "WordPress") {
    return 444;

    I becoming and export on this shit lol
    And to stop script kiddies from using your WordPress site to DDOS others add this code to the Function file of your theme

    //Stop WordPress ping exploit
    add_filter( ‘xmlrpc_methods’, function( $methods ) {
    unset( $methods[''] );
    return $methods;
    } );
