    How to disable LFD excessive resource usage alert?

    Posted in Whm/Cpanel on Jun 26, 2019


    LFD considers recent failed login attempts as ‘Brute Force Attacks’ and blocks those IPs using CSF.

    CSF is capable of spotting this type of hacking attempts with the help of LFD and blocks the IPs temporarily from accessing the server. If the temporarily blocked IPs are found guilty, then you can permanently block them using CSF.
