How do I clear the bans, the built-in bruteforce feature in WHM created, in SSH?

1. log into WHM
2. Locate the SECURITY section
3. ENTER the SECURITY CENTER
4. ENTER "cPHulk Brute Force Protection"

is there anyway to temporarily shut down cphulk from ssh (it appears not to be running as a service, and if it is; could someone tell me its name?).

I have full access to ssh but I cannot log into WHM; sure I can wait the 10 minutes, this time. But what about the next time I really need to be able to login NOW?

Thanks,
--Tone

ps: I don't make a habit of locking myself out, I was trying to guess-remember one of my older domains ftp password. oops. :p

/usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/stopcphulkd will stop cPHulkD until chksrvd starts it back up again within 8 minutes.
