Block an IP address range using the .htaccess file

I detected an attack to one (compromised) server running Apache and PHP. A fair amount of request were being made to a hacked resource. So one of the steps to avoid so many request was to block the IP range of the attacker(s). This was made via .htaccess in the site configured in apache:

Order Allow,Deny
Deny from XXX.XXX.XXX.0/24

That would stop the attack (for a few moment at least!)
