    My server is currently under a synflood attack. I've enabled synflood protection in CSF with the following settings

    SYNFLOOD
    = On
    SYNFLOOD_RATE
    = 20/s
    SYNFLOOD_BURST
    = 10

    It seems to be successfully detecting them, as my log/messages is filled with
    ... server kernel: [ 944.509361] Firewall: *SYNFLOOD Blocked* IN=eth0 ...

    However, those IPs are not getting blocked (added to the deny list). I have to manually add them in order to stop the attack.

    How can I make CSF automatically add the IP to the block list once a synflood attack from it is detected?
