    Hi,
    Does "cPHulk Brute Force Protection" also protect access to FTP also or just WHM?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    Yes, cPhulk protects more than just access attempts to Web Host Manager. Other services protected include cPanel, SSH, FTP, IMAP, and POP3. Note that cPHulk will not protect POP3 or IMAP against IP-based brute force attacks if you use the Courier mailserver. Courier does not log the IP addresses of failed POP3 and IMAP logins.

    You can find documentation for cPHulk at:

    cPHulk for Brute Force Protection

    Thank you.

    Good idea to keep this in mind if you have cphulk enabled. If your email program tries multiple logins with the wrong password too many times and then try to log in to cPanel or WHM to fix the issue, cPanel/WHM's login will tell you that you have the wrong password even though your IP is actually banned. Might just have to wait it out or disable cphulk from an SSH console to log in and whitelist your IP address. Even better, do that first.
