    hello,

    i am wondering what does authentication database means.
    there is somebody bruteforcing me, and these are the results.

    Code:
    Service: smtp
    Local IP Address: *.*.*.*
    Remote IP Address: 101.71.217.134
    Authentication Database: system
    Username: -
    Number of authentication failures: 3
    Maximum number allowed: 3
    
    Service: smtp
    Local IP Address: *.*.*.*
    Remote IP Address: 80.82.65.206
    Authentication Database: mail
    Username: -
    Number of authentication failures: 3
    Maximum number allowed: 3
    
    both are smtp, but one is mail, and the other is system.

    Hello :)

    The "Authentication Database" entry names the service on your server to which the user attempted to log in. Here's the example from our cPHulk documentation:

    Thank you.
