Not proxy php requests


I have been searching for a solution for below problem but no luck,
would greatly appreciate if someone shed some lights on it.

Basically I run a tomcat java app behind the nginx but keep getting php
requests from hackers, my log is flooded with php requets. Right now,
the php request would also get proxied to the tomcat, my question is if
there is any ways to stop that? just having nginx return 444 or
something. How does everyone handles it?

What do you mean by getting php request by hackers? Do you get requests
files with php extension. If so, a simple location directive should have
solve this.

location ~ .php {
return 404;
