The purpose of this module is not to increase the security of your server, but
to allow you to prosecute hackers after the fact. If your server has a remotely
exploitable vulnerability and you block Tor nodes, you can still be hacked from
any other IP address on the Internet.
The only difference is that blocking Tor force the attackers to use a
non-anonymized IP address, which can (at least theoretically) be traced back to
them. I have doubts that this really makes a difference in practice.
Blacklisting IP addresses is no substitute for actually fixing the
vulnerabilities on your servers.
