But how do you block it? 403 is possible, but not what
we want. Firewall is possible, but our hosting
provider doesn't allows us to configure it (VPS).

It looks like there is currently no solution avaible.
We are considering writing an Apache module that would
allow us to close the connection without sending any
info (403) back to the bad visitor.
The question is whether Apache 1.3 modules are allowed
to close/kill connections like that?
