    Can the cPHulk whitelist/blacklist accept IP addresses in CIDR notation, ie. 100.100.0.0/18 or will it only accept single IP addresses as input?

    Is there a a parameter which can be set anywhere to force cPHulk to block addresses longer than the default 2 weeks?

    I tried blocking my IP using 208.74.121.0/24 to see if the last octet would be blocked and it did work. This was configured in the WHM > Security Center > cPHulk Brute Force Protection > White/Black List Management section.

    Also, we have an internal case discussing CIDR notation and IPv6 (case 43117). It appears that the CIDR notation portion functions from what I can see.
