I get daily calls about CSF and CPHulk and now I want to automate reading and removing entries. CSF is well supported via the command line. CPHulk not it seems?

We are getting many SMTP brute force attacks which causes load on our servers. Now we use many firewall besides not only a hardware firewall infront of servers but also bitninja / CSF.
However it does not seem to be working too well as they still get through with distributed attacks to those...
According to this article, blacklisting/restricting IPs from accessing the server through SMTP is done through EXIM configuration. Doesn't cPHulk do the same thing on a broader basis? Should I blacklist in both EXIM and cPHulk?
Just installed CPanel/WHM on a brand new server, and have already encountered a problem: in CPHulk EMail notifications, the links to blacklist or whitelist IPs/ranges do not work. More specifically, the links work in that they take you to the in page, which a loads - but it's impossible to...
Hi, I'm getting confused about the two types of protection options available in cPHulk: username-based and IP address-based.
I've read the doc page for this but it's a bit unclear to me as it self-references a bit. :) In the section about username-based protection, it says:
After investigating some of your run-of-the-mill cphulk blocks, I realized the reason my whitelist isn't working is that cphulk is seeing all traffic as the gateway IP (10.0.0.1) and brute forcing bots are getting that IP temp banned. Clearly I've taken a wrong turn somewhere in...
When I check the server for brute force attack, in the IP section it shows the IP of our server, and in the Authentication Service section it shows dovecot, country LT, although the server is not even in this country.
Can someone explain why it shows the IP of our server?
We enabled country blocking on our server and CPhulk blocked everything, web and ssh, even blocked access to hosted sites. I tried the following;
but cphulk would restart. I then tried;
I am getting this annoying warning each time I press "Remove Blocks and Clear Reports" from the History Reports on cPHulk Brute Force Protection.
I have a Virtuozzo dedicated server with GoDaddy and they couldn't provide any help.
Is there a way to fix it? Since it started a few versions ago...
I have 2 Questions regarding CpHullk :
1 - How does the Regions VS. Countries priority work ?
I have AP (AP) Listed as a Country in the CpHulk countries list. I assume this is AP = ASIA PACIFIC as a region. The second region would be EU.
So my question is : If I blacklist ( or Whitelist )...
Maybe I don't understand how cPHulk is suppose to work. If have for example Russia blacklisted under the Countries, and I have

I've spent a good deal of time, reached out to my server host, and was told I need to ask here.

This is my first post on this forum. Great information here, can believe I haven't joined this forum till now.

First time posting in these forums. We're getting the following message on a daily basis it seems. Normally a message follows immediately afterwards that the service has recovered. I'm not a Cpanel expert but I've tried looking through the logs but I'm not finding anything...
In v78.0.20 version, it appears cphulkd down in service status in clean cpanel installation.
There is no error when cphulkd restarts.

Before the flame war starts over me not searching or Googling this first, I did.
Google thinks "cpaneld" = "cpanel". If you put the entire question in quotes "what is cpaneld", Google yields no results.
And this own forum's search for "cpaneld" yields a thousand results of folks pasting code...
I have the following problem:
