Thread: BFD rules

  1. #1

    BFD rules


    I am facing a serious problem here:
    The server I was before was banning my IP after about 30 attempts to brute force into my own whm.
    The server I am now does not, even after 80 manual tries to hack my own whm!!! I have asked my current host and he said that he has APF/BFD installed.
    I do believe him, however I think he has not set some variables strict enough to consider 30 login attemts as hack attempts.
    Do you know which variables/settings in BFD determine the number of acceptable login failures?

    How will I know if my host has installed BFD?

    BFD doesn't monitor cPanel/WHM logins - CSF does. The server you were using before probably used CSF.
