"Upon occurrence, bozohttpd reports two HTTP status codes to blocklistd(8) as failures: 401 (``Unauthorized'') and 403 (``Forbidden'') . Of these, 401 is the one received upon authorization failure with the HTTP Basic Authorization mechanism. A successful authorization decreases the counter kept by blocklistd(8)."
