I followed Magento instruction and added the following rule in the root .htaccess file (inside IfModule mod_rewrite.c>): RewriteRule ^(index.php/)?rss/ - [L,R=403]
I still can access RSS request page: /index.phprss/catalog/notifystock
Any idea how to block RSS access on 1.7 magento?
I'm not sure how savory of a practice this is ...but, at one time when rss feeds were not being used, I put a redirect like the one below just at the bottom of my htaccess and it just redirects.
Redirect 301 /rss/catalog/notifystock/ http://www.put your redirect url here.com
