    Hello,
    I got this email from my server today evening. I did not login to my server since afternoon. Is this something i should be worried about?

    No need to post that entire log to your post. That's a cPanel updates email alerting you that it ran last night. You'll get one every day when updates runs.

    Thank you Infopro,
    Additionally, i got this message at night :|
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A device at the “xx.xxx.xx.xxx” IP address has made a large number of invalid login attempts against the account “admin”. This brute force attempt has exceeded the maximum number of failed login attempts that the system allows. For security purposes, the system has temporarily blocked this IP address in order to prevent further attempts.

    Service: sshd
    Remote IP Address: xx.xxx.xx.xxx
    Authentication Database: system
    Username: xxxx
    Number of authentication failures: 30
    Maximum number allowed: 30
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This seems to worry me a bit. If this is a threat, please let me know how to take any precaution measure.
    Thanks!
